Husband's favorite breakfast!!!
This was delicious!! Husband is begging me to make again. Only problem I had was that it didn't seem to cook at 350 in 25 minutes. Had to up the oven to 425 and leave it another 15 minutes in oven. I will definitely be making this again and again!Read More
This was delicious!! Husband is begging me to make again. Only problem I had was that it didn't seem to cook at 350 in 25 minutes. Had to up the oven to 425 and leave it another 15 minutes in oven. I will definitely be making this again and again!
This was delicious! I served it for dinner with a salad and fruit, but it would also be great for a ladies luncheon or tea.
Thought it was pretty good. I like the idea of using hash browns as the crust instead of a pie crust. Also, the original recipe could use more eggs and milk because the three eggs in the original recipe are absorbed by the hash brown crust. And because of this you get the taste of eggs but its not like your eating eggs like you would in a traditional quiche.I used 5 eggs and a cup of milk the second time that I made this and it came out much better.
Edit: I now use the O'Brien 'simply potatoes' when on sale and use the entire bag in a deeper dish glass pie dish, excellent! Original review - Pretty decent and easily modified with what you have on hand. Although...I decided the ham and cheese amounts excessive for 3 eggs (I even used XL eggs). So, I went with 1/2 C each of chopped smoked deli ham & shredded provolone (cheddar didn't appeal to me) and used 4 XL eggs. I used an 8" pie pan and I had around 2.5 cups of shredded potatoes (I had to shred my own spuds). I did toss the melted butter in the potatoes prior to forming a crust. I needed to use up red bell type pepper and 2 small green chili peppers that I had charred/peeled and diced. I used 1/4 C ea of 2% milk and sour cream in the eggs and seasoned the potatoes a little bit b4 baking. I mixed a few T each of minced grn onion, provolone, parm shreds and pre-cooked bacon bits and topped the quiche right before it was completely set. With the quiche 6" from the flame I set to broil and a few minutes later...it looked and tasted great! I'll make this again with whatever I have on hand; but less meat/cheese then called for. Turned out 'just right' as dinner for the two of us with 1/2 leftover for day after lunch. Great starting point and easily modified. Thanks for submitting your recipe Candace : )
I had an idea for dinner but couldn't find what I wanted so I used this recipe as a template and it was exactly what I was looking for. My version used ham and a mix of sauteed leeks, broccoli and mushrooms. I also added an extra egg & a little extra milk, giving it 35 mins at 350. I may have been overly generous with the melted butter on the crust because only the edges browned and the rest of it was 'foamy' so next time I'll try using a pastry brush and give it a light brush. We will definitely make this again, thank you, Candace!
I must say this was a fabulous recipe. I was kind of wary about the 3 cups of hash browns. I used the Simply Potatoes O'Brien Hash Browns. It appeared 3 cups was way too many, even after I mixed in the butter and packed into my deep dish pie plate. I baked the potatoes at 425 degrees for 25 mins. Next, I added my cubed ham and sautéed onions and peppers. I topped with a cheddar and Monterrey Jack cheese blend. Then, I added 4 beaten eggs (as previously suggested) mixed with the 1/2 cup of milk and spices. The mixture perfectly filled the pie plate. Finally, I baked for 20 mins, still at 425 degrees. It was enjoyed by all, except the picky non-hash brown eating kid. I served it with cinnamon rolls and fresh fruit cups. This recipe was simply delicious! Plus, there are endless possibilities!
Great for brunch! It was aliile bland the frist go round so, on the second try i used 4 eggs, 2 extra tbls of milk, doubled the salt and pepper, 2/3 cup chopped broccoli and 1/4 cup sliced mushrooms. Fantastic!!
This was very good! My husband isn't a big fan of quiche but, suddenly, you change up the crust and replace it with hash browns and he's all over it...go figure! I used green onions but aside from that, made no changes. We had it for dinner one night and 2 mornings of breakfast over the weekend.
This is a great recipe! We didn't have any hash brown potatoes so I shredded raw potatoes and it worked great! My daughter who does not like eggs even liked this! Awesome!
Made exactly as described, and it was great! Loved the crunchy edge of the hash-brown crust. Next time I may leave the crust in longer to get the whole thing a little browner and crunchier.
I had just made a nice soup and was determined to make this delicious looking quiche. Unfortunately I was missing a few ingredients and we have a blizzard going on outside. Thank you to the other reviewer who suggested shredding your own potatoes if you didn't have hash browns. I added the melted butter, some garlic salt and onion powder and mixed it in with the potatoes before pressing into the pie plate. It worked great and I will always make it this way. I also didn't have ham so I used a nice Italian sausage which had a lot of flavour. I will definitely make this again with the ham and experiment with some other possibilities, ie mushrooms. broccoli, spinach, tomatoes and other cheeses. Great recipe.
I made this for our family Christmas breakfast and it was a hit with everyone! I had several requests for the recipe.
my husband who kept saying "I'm not a quiche person you know" while it was baking, ate 3/4 of the pie! lol it was very good and here's how I made it: I didn't thaw the hash browns, and unfortunately I didn't have small shredded hash browns either, but I layered them into the bottom and up the sides of a glass pie plate. I brushed the hash browns with the 3 T melted butter, then baked in the oven for 15 minutes. Meanwhile I sauteed onion (probably more than 1/4 c), and pepper (I added 1/3 green, 1/3 red and 1/3 yellow) and made the egg mixture (I used 5 eggs instead of 3). When the hash browns came out of the oven, I layered on the onion, pepper mixture, the diced ham, poured the egg mixture over top and then layered on lots of cheese (a Mexican cheese blend). Baked the indicated time and it was really good! thanks for sharing a delicious recipe!
I made this for a baby shower and it was a big hit. I have had several requests to share the recipe. It was very easy to make. Leftovers warmed up great in the microwave and tasted just as yummy the next day. This is a keeper!
I served this for dinner and it got rave reviews - my husband actually told me how good it was four times during the meal and my picky eater went back for seconds in spite of the red pepper and the onion! Will make this again for sure!
This is a keeper. Kids liked it, though I used onion powder instead of actual onions. Did not add peppers.
We loved this! I agree that the hash browns need a little seasoning before being pressed into the pan, but, was excellent! Will make again.
My husband and I loved this. I added a bit more onion and green pepper and will definitely make this again.
Good but kind of ho hum. Will tweak it till I come up with something I really like.
I made Home made hash browns in caserole dish with doubled recipe and no peppers. Big hit at women's brunch.
This was very good. I salted the potatoes after forming the crust. My husband would like a crispier crust next time so will try broiling it briefly at the end of the crust cook time. The whole quiche took about 15 minutes extra cook time to set. This morning my daughter requested leftovers for supper!
Excellent recipe. I used bacon instead of ham and mild pepper rings instead of green pepper and added some leftover steamed asparagus. It is versatile enough you can add ingredients to your preference. Husband loved it. Great warmed up for a fast breakfast through the week.
I just made it for the first time. My mom is astonished keeps saying I out did myself and can't wait for me to make it again. Wonderful must have!
I made this for a breakfast potluck and everyone loved it! I only changed a few things based on some of the suggestions given by others in their comments below (thanks!). I sautéed the onions, bell peppers and ham a bit before adding the mixture to the potatoes and I used more eggs than suggested (mine were pretty small). Also, I added sour cream in the milk mixture about 1/2 cup (salt and pepper to preference). I will be making this again!
It's an employee's birthday today so I pulled this up last night because it looked quick and easy enough. It was amazing. Every person that ate it complimented me on it. I prepped everything last night so all I had to do was bake it this morning. Will definitely make again.
Good idea - I only had potatoes and didn't feel like making dough. The bottom gets a bit soggy, and I needed to jazz it up some. A light mix of cheeses instead of a ton of cheddar, a few more spices, and some spinach. Might try to figure out how to get the bottom of the crust a bit crunchier without burning the higher edges.
This was really good. I made exactly as written and I loved it. That being said. I really don't like green peppers and next time I will leave them out but even with them I loved it... Great Recipe
Will definitely make again - a big hit with husband & a guest. Added a few mushrooms & some garlic powder. Took about 10 more minutes to set up at 350°.
This was a great recipe. I did follow other posts advice and added some spinach and mushrooms. Also left out the pepper as I didn't have one on hand. Very, very tasty! Thanks
This was very very good.... I added mushrooms but stuck to the recipe otherwise! Yummy!
This morning my husband came in from work wanting to finish off the last of our Christmas ham for breakfast. It wasn't enough for a meal so I did a quick search for recipes with 'ham eggs onions and cheese' to see what I would get. I expected a yummy omelet recipe but this popped up instead, I had all of the ingredients, and it sounded simple enough. Long story short it turned out amazing and really did the Christmas ham justice to go out in style. This is the 1st Quiche I've ever made. My husband couldn't get enough and only stopped eating servings because he couldn't fit anymore in his belly and my picky kids loved it too. The only thing I did differently is make my own hashbrowns using patience, a sharp nice, a few spare potatoes and one of the simple recipes on the site. Also I grilled all the veggies together for 5 minutes just before adding in the meat mixture. Additions I made were 1 medium tomato, a hand full of Mushrooms, an extra egg, a few sprinkles of cayenne pepper to add some kick to the grilled veggie mix, and a bit more seasoning to make up for all the extras. I was short on the ham so I added deli sliced roast beef to make up for it. I blended all my meats together for about 20 seconds to spread them more evenly. 350 degrees for 25 minutes wasn't enough so after I saw it was still gooey I amped the oven up to 425 and left it in the oven for 10 additional minutes.
Followed the directions to the recipe exactly. It needed about 10 more minutes in the oven. It was delicious!
It was delicious! Of course I made modifications because of ingredients on hand. I used Swiss cheese that went really well with the ham. I had to add an extra egg and some more milk. Everyone loved it.
Wonderful! Great for that left-over ham. For more flavor I add pepper-jack cheese.
Before this recipe, I'd make quiche with a store-bought pie shells. Ho hum. I never thought of making the shell with frozen potatoes. I use another reviewer's tip and substitute potatoes with onions and peppers. My sons love it so much, they ask for it. Guess how often that happens? Thank you for sharing!
The whole family loved this. A great Sunday night dinner and the left overs didn’t last long either. I’m just about to make it again.
This was so easy to make! Will cook hash browns a bit longer next time (we like them super crunchy). Otherwise, we really enjoyed this dish. Was my first time making a quiche, so wasn't sure we'd enjoy but will definitely make again! May even mix it up and add different things. A must do!
my husband HATES hash browns but when I made this he didn't t have enough good things to say about it you can pretty much put any kind of veggie or cheeses you like and have it turn out yummy. such a forgiving recipe you won't be sorry!
Made this for Father's Day brunch and it was a big hit with our family. A keeper for sure! I would forego the foil though - next time I will use Pam despite the instruction not to butter the pan.
The best gauge for any recipe in my house is if my husband goes back for seconds. Then after an hour we went back for another plate. Definitely going to keep this in the cookbook. Would also taste good with Sausage or jalapeno's too.
The only change I made to the recipe was to add some thinly sliced mushrooms. My husband and I both love it. There was only one slice left which I imagine he will be having as a late night snack. Thanks so much for sharing your recipe.
My family loved it! I did doctor it up with more spices but I will definitely make this again. It was a great way to use up some leftover ham:)
A wonderful gluten free way to enjoy quiche
This was really good! Loved the hash brown crust. Will definitely make it again! Thank you for a really good recipe. P.S. warmed leftovers in the oven and the hash browns crisped right up. Was even better that next day.
I would make this again. I would add an extra egg and mix the hashbrowns the butter to make more crispy.
I'll be making this often as my "go to" meal when I'm in a hurry. It is a really good way to use common ingredients that are usually on hand to make a great dish. Thanks for sharing.
Easy and yummy!! Used left over ham out of freezer from Easter.
WOW ! My husband is such a picky eater and he LOVES this !! I used sausage but I'm sure it's great if you use Ham, Bacon or Sausage.
My oh my. This was so good. I made it as written, however being in New Mexico, I added two tablespoons of hot green chili. We put green chili in almost everything here. I baked the crust a little longer than called for, and it took awhile for the eggs to set up, but I blame it on the 5000 foot elevation. Served with a salad, that's all that was needed.
Loved it! This was so much better than other recipes I've made using hash browns as the crust layer! Definitely will make this on a regular basis!
So easy and tasty! I approximated each ingredient (ham, cheese, onion) without damaging the outcome. I didn't have bell peppers, so I substituted dried parsley. Oh! And I used dried minced onions. The recipe forgave me. Finally, I used a frozen pie shell (Gordon Food Service, GFS, is a marvelous source). Otherwise, I made it exactly as described. (Well, except I increased the eggs from 3 to 5.) It is true that I had a small, crustless overflow batch which I placed in a Pyrex bowl (perfect for me since I'm dieting). I absolutely love recipes that adapt to whim and experimentation. This quiche is the queen of adaptation. I love it! Moreover, my husband ate it for 3 meals in a row AT HIS REQUEST; he usually tires of a food after 1.5 servings (that .5 is the killer). It is THAT good!
My very picky husband even liked this. I didn't have frozen hash browns so I used fresh potatoes for the hash browns. I also substituted Ortega chilis for the Green peppers and seasoned the crust with pepper, garlic and parmesan cheese before baking. I will be making this again. I think I will try it with the frozen hash browns next time to see if it's better than the dish I made.
Really good! I used a tablespoon of butter and honestly you could skip it all together.
Excellent and will make again. I added some garlic and seasoning salt to hash browns. Used 4 eggs and 2/3 cup milk and baked the egg mixture at 375 for 30 minutes.
This was delicious, and the whole family liked it. I didn't have any bell peppers so I used Anaheim peppers since they were handy. Super easy to make.
Very good! I added apple wood smoked bacon to add just a hint of sweetness and some broccoli. Will make again!
The hash brown crust really kicked this recipe up a notch. Tasty and filling! I added a tablespoon of cornstarch, and used green onions instead of yellow/white. Also added a sprinkle of BRUNOS carne asada seasoning on the hashbrown crust, and over the top of the quiche for added flavor. Yummy!
We loved this dish and will make it in a 9x13 next time so there are some leftovers!
I added 1/2 cup sliced mushrooms and it was wonderful.
I added garlic to my egg mixture and it was amazing! I am making it for my parents this weekend!!
I used 4 eggs and turkey sausage instead of ham. Turned out great!!!
Very good starter dish. It does need more time in oven if you bake at 350 for the eggs to set all the way, otherwise very good my wife loved it!!!
This was awesome! I also added chopped mushrooms and orange bell pepper, and a little extra egg to cover the extra ingredients.
Really good. May not drizzle butter over hash browns next time as it seemed to take a long time for them to brown. Added some cut up fresh mushrooms and cut up spinach. Once egg mixture was added cooked in the time suggested in the recipe.
I made this for a few friends. It was very good! Easy to make. The hash brown crust was a nice surprise to everyone but it definitely makes it more or a breakfast/brunch quiche. I had to add one extra egg with a little milk to reach the top of the crust.
added half a cup of fresh spinach
Very good and easy to make. The minute I got it out of the oven my daughter had a huge bowl of it. Would definitely make again!!
I doubled the recipe to fit in a 9x13 pan and added mushrooms. It was delicious and perfect for breakfast or supper. Do require some cooking time but was so simple that didn't really matter.
The temps and times are spot on. For my family, I diced breakfast sausage, two jalapeño, mushrooms and kept the other ingredients as written. Thank you for sharing.
Loved it! Better than most and I even made it with dairy free cheese. My change was cubed hash browns instead of shredded so I didn’t have a crust. It was a bottom layer. But it worked and we all liked it.
This is now my go to dish when we have company! It’s nice not to have to slave over the stove, while everyone else is visiting. I try to use red and green peppers and/or red onion to give it more color. I serve it with canned Grand biscuits and jelly. It appears fancy, but is so easy!
We loved it I used 2 freshly peeled and shredded potatoes rinsed and pat dried and used 1 pkg. bacon instead of ham and a few slices of tomatoes for garnish but wonderful my husband actually ate 2nd new family favorite.
My family loved the potato crust; it made the meal much more filling than the crustless quiche I frequently make. The only thing I changed from the recipe was I increased the number of eggs to five. Delicious!
It was good but think when I cook again will add alittle more cheese didn’t think was very cheese and needed to cook it longer than 30 min at 350 cooked about 15 more min
used a bag of simply potatoes and tossed in butter, salt and pepper for crust. Maybe consider one of the flavored varieties tried southwestern flavored potatoes- took this to 5 stars!
Excellent, easy quiche. The hash-browns make this meal delicious!
This was great! Definitely a keeper for all occasions. I made a few changes. To the ham mix I added a can of cream of mushroom soup, 1/4 c. Milk, and 1 c. Diced and cooked broccoli. To the egg mix poured on top I used 4 eggs and a little less milk. Cooking time was 25 minutes but at 425. On the top I sprinkled a little shredded cheese for color.
So good and so easy! I did add shrooms and peppers. Will definitely make this again.
I have had this recipe for a long time and finally got around to making it. We enjoyed it . My family doesn't like onions in anything and I had no green pepper so I made it without. It was fine. The only change I will make is to use four cups of hash browns instead of three. I had to really stretch them to fill the pie pan and they were quite thin on the bottom. But it's hard to beat ham, eggs, and cheese together with potatoes. I will definitely make this again.
This was simple and we all liked it. I did not add onion or pepper, I didn't have any on hand. So, instead I added dried minced onion and a little Cajun seasoning (which we use on everything). I also subbed shredded hashbrowns for southern cubed hashbrowns, which was all I had, but I think they worked better than shredded would have.
As others mentioned, I might increase eggs to 4 or 5 next time. Will make again!
I had to substitute tator tots for hash browns, so I skipped the butter. This was great! I like it more than using a pie crust.
From family to co-workers everyone love's this. It has become my number one go to recipe for an impressive, no fail breakfast. Five stars! :)
It was delicious! I made some changes: I used bacon rather than ham; I used a cheese blend (Colby-Jack, Cheddar, and Spicy Pepper Cheese); and, I added a ring of sliced tomatoes around the rim of the pie plate. It was fabulous!! Served it with cut fruit and homemade bread with butter and jam. Yum!!!
This was great! I used shredded sweet potatoes instead of hash browns. I didn't have any peppers on hand so I put kale in instead. I also added some fresh garlic and I used a cheese blend instead of all cheddar. My son had three helpings and didn't realize it was made with sweet potatoes - he says he doesn't like sweet potatoes. I cannot wait to make this again.
Super, would highly recommend it!!
Easy as can be. I plan to try it with other ingredients, like spinach and feta - or broccoli and swiss.
My whole family loved this. I spiced it up and made it mine! Thank you for sharing!
This was delicious !
This was good. I made as written and it had nice flavor, but defitely had to cook much longer than the recommended time to cook all the way through. I think this would taste great with sausage in place of the ham.
Loved it. The whole family did. My daughter took seconds--which is a miracle. Could have cooked for maybe 5 more minutes, but it was still great.
Delicious brunch casserole I made for Christmas morning! I didn’t use green peppers and used green onions instead of regular cooking onions. I also doubled the recipe and was very glad I did!!! You have to try this out! This will become a holiday tradition!!!!
Very good. I took someone else’s advice and did 5 eggs with 1 cup of milk
All the kids loved it.
I used green onions and leftover ham from Christmas dinner. The whole family loved it. There were no leftovers.
A big hit, all the kids asked me to make it at least once a week. I did modify slUgh toy but only because I didn't have all the ingredients on hand.
I followed the recipe it turned out great., will make again.
I added italian sausage and bacon, instead of the ham, and I omitted the onion due to food sensitivities. Ummm good!
