Quiche with Hash Brown Crust

I love quiche, and that is why you frequently see it on my meal plan. Sometimes I put vegetables like broccoli in it and other times just ham or bacon.  This recipe is special because it uses hashbrowns for the crust, and it turns out delicious because the hash browns get nice and crispy.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 3 cups thawed hash browns
  • 4 T melted butter
  • 3 large eggs, beaten
  • 1 c half-n-half
  • 6 or 7 slices of cooked, cut up bacon (I used turkey bacon and cut it up with kitchen shears)
  • 1 T dried minced onion
  • 1 c cheddar cheese, shredded

Dry out your thawed hash browns really well between paper towels, and then mix with the butter. Then pat into a 9 inch pie plate, forming a crust on the bottom and sides.

Combine the rest of the ingredients while the crust is baking, and then when the crust is done, pour the egg mixture over it.Turn oven down to 350 degrees, and bake for 30 minutes till quiche is a pretty light brown.
