Potato & Vegetable Quiche (No Pastry)

"Posted for RecipeZaar World Tour 2006, this is a recipe adapted from the small community cookbook from Dixon House on the West Coast, South Island of New Zealand, now sadly out of print. Temperature was not given so I have made a guesstimate and cooked mine for 1 hour at 190 C (375 F). Vegetables: use what you have to hand and you just fill up the dish :) REGION: New Zealand."

    LOL so when you're all done, is the bacon still sitting on the prep table? The specific question--unmentioned in the recipe--is whether to fry the bacon before adding to the cook vegetable mixture. Reading the comments, it looks like the translation of this recipe from its original source could have been more complete than it was. I'm surprised no one else noticed this, or maybe just figured out that if you're going to have to cook the vegetables you'd have to cook the bacon too.

    Kiwi, this is delicious! I did decide to use a crust as I had one prepared that needed to be used, otherwise didn't stray from the recipe! I loved this!!!! Thank you so much for this delightful recipe! Made for 2009 Spring PAC

    This was very tasty. I made it quite a while ago and forgot to post a review! I spread the potatoes quite thinly in a shallow plate and I think I cooked it a bit before filling it with the filling.. just so the milk mixture wouldn't absorb into the potatoes too much. I think I used 2% milk (I don't ever have cream on hand). I cut up my own veggies to use up what I had in the fridge. I just cooked it until it wasn't wet. Yum

    This is a wonderful quiche. I made it twice while I was away recently on a trip to help my friend pack for a move. I am so glad I took the recipe with me. We all loved it. I made it once with homemade pastry and once without. Both versions were excellent. I fried about 1/4 lb. of bacon, drained most of the excess grease then added butter to the same pan to stir fry the veggies. I used carrots, celery, onion, peas, and peppers. Added this one to my favorites binder! Thanks for a great recipe.

    I turned this into a main dish meal by browning in olive oil and some garlic a lb of cut up chicken breast first. Then I used a package of frozen stir fry veggies, which I think made the dish a little runny (the potatoes didn't brown up). I added some fresh cauliflower to the boiling potatoes and mashed them together. I used 1/2 C milk and 1/2 C cream with cheddar cheese and 1 egg with 2 egg whites. I put the vegetables over the potatoes in a 9x13 dish and put the chicken over the veggies and poured the cream mix over it all. I think next time I would add some chopped onion or green onion and some garlic, plus put some seasoning in the potatoes, but it was good as is and baked for the 40 minutes. I wonder if it would help to bake the potatoes a bit first. I would also try it with fresh veggies next time. Thanks Kiwidutch!
