Potato & Bacon Quiche

Breakfast is said to be the most important meal of the day. That being said, I usually end up eating around ‘brunch’ time. For some reason, eating first thing in the morning doesn’t sit well with my system.

So, I try to have some kind of a breakfast casserole or quiche on hand. It can be cut and warmed in the microwave in just a few minutes. And we love a good hearty quiche.

This one is so good that we had to have a piece of it almost as soon as it came out of the oven. I hope you’ll give it a try. I believe you’ll agree that this one is packed full of goodness 👍

Potato & Bacon Quiche

1 refrigerated pie crust (I made one)

2-3 Tbsp. Olive oil (or one you like)

2 cups frozen cubed hash brown potatoes

Salt & pepper to taste

1/4 cup chopped onion

4 large eggs

1/2 Tbsp. Parsley flakes (optional)

1/2 tsp salt

1/4 tsp. Pepper

1 1/2 cup half & half

1 cup Shredded Swiss Cheese

1/2 cup shredded cheddar (or your choice)

6 slices cooked crumbled bacon

1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees

2. Bake pie crust with pie weights (or watch video to see how I do it) for 10 minutes

3. Remove weights and bake for 5 more minutes. Remove from oven

4. Set oven to 350 degrees

5. Add olive oil to frying pan and cook hash brown cubes, chopped onion, & salt & pepper to taste, until potatoes are slightly browned and onion is translucent. Remove from heat

6. Spread 1/2 of potatoes/onion over bottom of pie crust

7. Spread 1/2 of Swiss & cheddar cheeses over potatoes.

8. Spread 1/2 of bacon pieces on top of cheeses

9. Repeat layers

10. Whisk eggs, half & half, parsley flakes, salt & pepper together

11. Pour egg mixture over layers in pie crust.

12. Bake at 350 degrees for 46/50 minutes

13. Cool & serve

14. NOTE: this can be made ahead & cooked later, or cooked and reheated one piece at a time in microwave.
