Hash Brown Quiche

June 28, 2012Teresa

2013 – Gluten Free Living

Hash Brown Quiche is absolutely mouthwatering.  It’s also gluten free. Instead of a flour crust, this recipe uses hash browns. The hash browns are loaded with ham, cheese, and diced green pepper (any color will do, however). Then an egg and milk sauce (I prefer heavy whipping cream) is poured over the top to give this casserole it’s quiche-like texture.

It’s not very difficult to prepare and it is very tasty. I like to make this with leftover spiral cut ham when I make my Apricot Glazed Ham recipe. It makes a terrific breakfast with fresh fruit, pastry or French Toast.

Anybody that’s following my blog will realize I have tried a LOT of Taste of Home recipes. And this is no exception. This is a really delicious recipe that is elegant enough for company as well as regular meals or breakfasts. I would also recommend making up this recipe as a breakfast for dinner item. It makes a fantastic holiday breakfast.

If you’re looking for a great breakfast casserole recipe that’s a little different from the others, consider trying out this appetizing dish. I usually make the adapted version which is made in a large 10×15″ baking dish instead of a small 9″ pie plate. But I’ve included both recipes here so you can choose which version you prefer depending on how many people you have to feed.

When I initially published this recipe in June 2012 I was brand new to the blogging world. I didn’t have a clue how to take good pictures. Nor did I realize that I even needed a high quality camera. (Yes, I should have read “Blogging for Dummies,” because I was a dummy and just didn’t know it! 🙂

We recently spent the Christmas holidays with my in-laws (December 2014). I made this delicious quiche for Christmas breakfast along with a side of Baked Peach French Toast. They are absolutely two of my favorite breakfast recipes and John’s family sure enjoyed them, too.

This is the first time I’ve actually made the dish in a 9″ pie plate rather than a really large batch since there were only four of us. It turned out just as well as usual and there was barely a scrap left over. I decided to reshoot my pictures so you can get a better idea of what this breakfast entree truly looks like. Put Hash Brown Quiche on your holiday breakfast menu. You will be so glad you did.

Thaw hash browns. Pat hash browns with paper towels to remove excess moisture. Spray a 9″ pie plate with cooking spray. Press the hash browns into the bottom and up the sides of the baking dish. Pour melted butter evenly over the hash browns.

Place eggs, salt and pepper in a bowl. Add milk or heavy whipping cream. (I used the heavy whipping cream so we could use it up, but I actually liked the taste of this quiche better with cream than regular 2% milk).
