Hash-Brown-Crust Quiche

If this isn’t the best way to eat quiche it certainly is a good way.

This quiche was severely adapted from Martha Stewart's  Goat Cheese Quiche with Hash-Brown Crust

 

quiche-2576c

 

butter well a 9”x 2 1/2 “ spring-form pan;  attach strips of waxed paper to the buttered sides of the pan, and trim paper to level with top of pan; and butter the paper generously.

The photos  on the right are accidentally reversed, please look at them counter-clockwise starting from the butter cube and every thing will be right.

mix one egg in a medium-size bowl, then add the drained potatoes and soft butter .

 

quiche-2596c

 

mix it all together:  the fork looks proper, but clean hands do a quicker job of it; mix in some salt and pepper, which I forgot until several steps later, oh, well.

 

quiche-2600c

 

line the pan with the potato mixture; in a warmed 375 degree oven, bake 20-25 minutes or until the top edge begins to brown nicely

while that cooks, mix the rest of the eggs in the same now empty bowl,  add drained cottage cheese

and the other cheeses

I should have let it get browner, but I thought it might get too brown on the second baking, but it did not

sprinkle bacon in pan.

then pour in the egg and cheese mixture

 

quiche-2630

 

Return to the oven and continue cooking for about 45 minutes, or when eggs are set.

remove from oven, let cool a few minutes; then release sides of pan

and peel away waxed paper

Hi Pancake Ninja,

I really enjoy seeing every single step and sequence that you did to make this interesting quiche. Even though there was a lot of steps involved making this quiche, it seems not too difficult and all were done in a flash... like magic!

Totally agree with you that this is a good way to cook and enjoy a quiche!
