|The Best Thing I Ate in France|
Remembering my first taste of quiche as a teen in France, I picked up a loaf of Country French Bread at the local grocery to eat with this dish. It was a huge hit. My hubby ate leftovers for breakfast and took a second helping in his lunch. If you prefer a more traditional recipe then use the filling and put it in a prepared pie crust; bake it longer at the lower temperature.
Cheesy Hash Brown Quiche
2 cups Simply Potatoes Shredded Potatoes
3 Large organic eggs
1 teaspoon dried parsley
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup organic milk
1 small organic zucchini, chopped (According to the Non-GMO Project, zucchini is a high risk produce, always buy organic zucchini.) You can also substitute any fresh green veggie of the same consistency that you prefer.
1 clove garlic, minced
1 cup thick sliced mushrooms (slice them thick so they bite like soft meat)
1 cup shredded Colby Jack cheese
Toss potatoes with melted butter and press in pie plate just like a pie crust, sprinkle with salt. Bake in preheated oven @ 450 degrees for 20 minutes. Saute zucchini, mushrooms and garlic in a little olive oil and sprinkle with salt. In large mixing bowl mix eggs, milk, cheese, spices and veggies, take crust out of oven and add mixture to crust; return to oven and bake an additional 30 minutes @ 350 degrees. It took me back to that little French bistro that looked something like this...
