This has become one of my favorite new breakfast-for-dinner recipes! Hash browns are a favorite breakfast food for most people and this is such a great way to use them! Plus, it is so much easier than a typical crust.
Hash Brown Crust Quiche
2-3 cups Frozen Hash Browns (mostly thawed out)
2 Tablespoons Olive Oil (for brushing pie dish & hash browns)
1/2 cup milk
1/2 pound Ground Turkey Sausage, fully cooked (or other breakfast meat)
Chopped Veggies, such as onions, green peppers, mushrooms, tomatoes, spinach, etc…
Salt & Pepper, as desired
2/3 cup Shredded Cheese (to sprinkle on top)
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Brush a glass pie dish with olive oil. Press hash browns into the pie dish and tightly press them all around the bottom & sides. Lightly brush the packed hash browns with olive oil. Bake in a 425 degree oven for 20 minutes or until the hash browns are slightly browned & crispy around the edges.
While the hash brown crust is baking, whisk eggs & milk well, in a large bowl. Then, add in your desired ingredients... I like to use ground turkey sausage (fully cooked), onions, green peppers, mushrooms and feta cheese (you could also use ham, spinach, tomatoes, etc…) Add salt & pepper, as desired. Mix well & set aside until the hash brown crust is done baking.
Once you remove the hash brown crust from the oven, reduce the oven's temperature to 350 degrees. Then pour the egg mixture over the crust. Cover the top with shredded cheese. Return quiche to the oven for 30 minutes or until it is cooked through (the egg should be firm in the middle).
Doesn't the hash brown crust look good???
