Potato Crust Quiche

Updated: Oct 31, 2022



I had to use up my asparagus tonight or it was headed for the bin. Great dinner and it was fun. The potatoes came so crisy and I really enjoyed it. The nice thing about this recipe is that you can use whatever you have in the house veggie wise. I forgot to buy milk so I just used a cup of whipping cream. My eggs were small so I used 5. It came perfect. Heads up: The Goat cheese was from Aldi's....it was cheap and very creamy cheese.


INGREDIENTS:


1 Potato, raw and thinly planed

2 Tbsp butter

5 eggs

1 cup of Heavy Whipping Cream

1/4 tsp. of pepper

1/2 tsp. of salt

4 slices of cooked bacon

Splash of Olive Oil

1/2 cup Mushrooms

1 Cup Asparagus

1/4 cup of minced onion

4 oz. Goat Cheese

Green onion of garnish optional


RECIPE:


Preheat oven to 400 degrees


Take a small cast iron skillet (or whatever you use to roast veggies) and splash some Olive Oil on the bottom. Add in the Mushrooms, Asparagus and Onions and splash a little more oil on top with a bit of salt & pepper. Bake for 25 minutes.



Meanwhile, plane your potatoes very thin.




Coat your pie pan with half the butter. Starting on the bottom of your pie pan, start layering the potato slices and then all around the sides, slightly overlapping. Melt and brush the other Tbsp butter on the potatoes. Put the pie pan in the same 400 degree oven and cook for about 25 minutes.



In a bowl, add the eggs, cream, salt and pepper and thoroughly whisk until smoothe.


Remove the Potato Pie Pan from the oven. Add into the pan the roasted veggies, the bacon and Goat Cheese (saving a little of the cheese for the top). Using a fork, gently move the veggies around so that the layer of veggies is even.



Next, pour the egg mixture over the veggies. Top with any remaining cheese.



Bake the quiche in a 375 degree oven, middle rack position, for 25 to 35 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean when poked in the middle.


Allow the quiche to cool for about 10 minutes after it comes out of the oven. Then remove it from the pan, garnish with the green onion and serve. Enjoy!
