Hash Browns Quiche

"I found this recipe in one of the TOH special additions. Our Christmas meal at our home is Breakfast Brunch. I made this dish this year, with a couple of revisions, and it was the hit of the brunch."

Ready In:
1hr 20mins




  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  • Presh hash browns between paper towels to be sure to get all moisture out.
  • Press into the bottom and up the sides of an ungreased, deep dish 9" pie plate.
  • Drizzle butter over hash browns.
  • Bake for 25 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, combine the ham and cheese.
  • When the hash browns are browned, spread the ham and cheese mixture over the top.
  • Mix eggs, milk, salt and pepper and pour evenly over the ham and cheese mixture.
  • Reduce oven heat to 350 and bake the quiche for 25 to 30 minutes longer, or until knife inserted in center comes out clean.
  • Allow to stand for 10 minutes before cutting.
  • Hint: my family loved this with sauted garlic mushrooms served over the top of each slice, salsa would be good served over the top also.

    This is a "go-to" recipe for brunch for guests. I use the refrigerated hashbrowns found near the eggs in your grocery stores. My favorite combo is bacon, gorgonzola and asparagus! Or feta, mushrooms and gyro meat!

    Loved it but I'll make two next time. My three teenage boys wanted more!

    Had great hopes. I will make again but next time I would up the eggs and lessen the cheese.

    Love it! Had to make it into a 9 x 13 pan size. It was so good the first time, the only problem is it wasn't enough. I thought it was a little on the dry side, would have been good with sour cream or salsa on top, but tonight I'm making it again and am going to try a cup of cottage cheese to make it a tad more moist.

    I used bacon instead of ham and it was delicious! One of the best quiches I have made so I will make this often. Thanks for sharing.

    This is extremely good! I have made it with sausage, bacon and ham. Ive even substituted the shredded hash browns with tater tots. It is extremely easy works with any breakfast meats. Definitely a keeper

    Great Dish! Using the hash browns as the crust was fantastic. I made a couple of changes. Instead of ham I used 1lb of Jimmy Deans hot sausage and I added onions. For cheese all I had was an italian blend and parmesan which I used but it turned out fabulous. I did have to soak up the oil that was on top but otherwise it was a huge hit. Thanks for the recipe.

    I made this for Breakfast yesterday. Instead of ham..I used Canadian Bacon, I also added some chopped green peppers and onions. I love these breakfasts in one pan things!! This was very good. Thank you for the recipe!
