Fab Recipe: Hash Brown Quiche


Fab readers while our parents were in town visiting I decided to have a Saturday brunch at my place that included a fabulous recipe for a hash brown based quiche. I found the recipe while cruising on food network's website and I have to say that the dish was a HUGE hit!! Everyone loved it (including our father who hates eggs). The recipe was really simple and did not take long. I highly recommend this dish as it is a real crowd pleaser. If you want to try having your own simple brunch like I did just make this dish  (added spinach and used turkey ham) with fresh fruit, cheese danish and mimosas and you have a simple yet fab brunch :)
Try the recipe below


  • 3 cups, shredded frozen hash browns, thawed and drained
  • 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) butter, melted
  • 3 large eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup half-and-half
  • 3/4 cup diced cooked ham
  • 1/2 cup diced green onions
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper


Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
Gently press the drained hash browns between paper towels to dry them as best as possible. In a 9-inch pie plate, toss the hash browns with the melted butter into the plate. Press them into the bottom and up the sides to form a crust. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes until golden brown and starting to crisp.
Meanwhile, in a large mixing bowl, combine the remaining ingredients. When the hash brown crust is ready pour the egg mixture over it and return to the oven.
Lower the oven temperature to 350 degrees F and bake for about 30 minutes until the quiche is light golden brown on top and puffed.
