This is a yummy and satisfying breakfast dish. I'm sure many of you have made it in it's many variations but yesterday at the hair salon the lady sitting next to me had never heard of quiche made with a hashbrown crust. I enlightened her and she gave me her email address so I could mail it to her. Since she had never heard of it before I thought I would just share it with each of you. It's pretty simple to make and a delicious yet sophisticated looking breakfast to serve to a group of people for breakfast or brunch. You can add fruit and pastries to the menu along with orange juice and toast if you like. Enjoy!
1 pkg. Ore Ida Frozen Hash Browns (Shredded) or Costco's hashbrowns
1/2 Cup Butter (melted)
2 Cups diced Ham, Bacon, Sausage, Polska Keilbasa or any combination
2 Cups Shredded Cheddar Cheese, Colby, or both
Green Peppers, Onions, Mushrooms are optional
1/2 cup Milk
5 eggs (beaten)
salt and pepper to taste
Empty hash browns into a 9”X13” ungreased pyrex dish. Drizzle melted butter over the top and place in a 425 degree preheated oven for 30 minutes. Combine meat, cheese, green peppers, onions, mushrooms and spoon over hash browns. Spread evenly. Beat the eggs, milk, salt and pepper. Pour egg mixture over the ingredients in dish. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before cutting. Serves 6-10 depending on how BIG you cut the pieces. In my family we're lucky to get 6 pieces. My kids could each eat TWO pieces they love it so much.
