I love breakfast any time of the day. Love quiche for breakfast, lunch or dinner with a nice salad and vegetable. I created a quiche with a hash brown crust, to bring the breakfast, brunch or dinner (Brinner) quality to this yummy quiche! Enjoy!
Baked hash brown crust.
Hash Browns, I used Simply Potatoes, Southwest variety, plain would be fine too
1/2 cup or more of cheese, I used Colby Jack, use your favorite, grated
1 cup ham, chopped, I just bought about a half a pound of ham from the deli, about a 1/4 inch ham steak
8 ounces ground sausage, I used mild, cooked and drained
5 pieces of bacon, cooked and crumbled
5 eggs, I used extra large
1 cup while milk, half and half is even better, I used milk
1/4 cup onion, chopped, I used 3 green onions
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
Chives, chopped optional for garnish
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9 -9 1/2 inch deep dish pie pan with cooking spray. Press package of hash browns in the pie pan, forming a crust on the sides and the bottom. Spray with cooking spray to help the hash browns brown and stay together. Bake for 15 minutes. Turn on broiler and broil the hash browns to brown and crisp them up. That should take an additional 4 – 6 minutes.
Put in ingredients and bake.
Put grated cheese on top of browned hash browns. Add meats, ham, bacon, sausage and onion on top of cheese. In a bowl whisk eggs, milk and seasonings together. Pour egg mixture over the meat and cheese. Bake in oven for 40 – 50 minutes or until egg is set and cooked. Enjoy!
