    johnniZanni's Note:

    Ready, Set, Cook! Special Edition Contest Entry: I got the idea for this recipe from the Fannie Farmer Cookbook. I have always wanted to make quiche, but was daunted by the need to make a proper crust. The Simply Pototoes Shredded Hash Browns seemed to me an ideal way to get around this problem, and makes a delicious and easy to prepare, foolproof crust. The crust complements and enhances the flavors of the spinach and quiche custard.
