Hash-Brown Quiche

  • 3 cups loose-packed frozen hash-brown potatoes, thawed
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 8 ounces cheese, shredded (all of one or a combination of pepper jack, Swiss, Gouda, or whatever you have)
  • 1 cup ham, diced (or whatever meat or veggies you like)
  • 1/2 cup light cream (AKA half and half) (or whatever kind of milk you use)
  • 2 eggs (I use 4 eggs if I leave the ham out)
  • 1/4 teaspoon seasoned salt (I use Tabasco salt)

Press the hash-browns between paper towels to remove the excess water. Press the hash-browns into a 9-inch pie plate to form a crust.

Drizzle melted butter over the crust. Bake at 425°F for 25 minutes. Remove from oven and reduce temp to 350°F.

Place meat or veggies in pie plate. Mix the cream/milk, eggs and salt. Pour over the meat. Sprinkle the cheeses over everything.

Bake at 350°F for 25-35 minutes. Or until a knife comes out clean. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.
