8 oz. bag frozen hash browns, thawed and drained
1/2 cup half-and-half
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup diced red pepper
1/4 cup diced onion
1/4 cup chopped broccoli
8 slices turkey bacon, cooked and chopped
1/2 cup shredded cheese
pinch on cayenne pepper
pinch of salt
1. Preheat oven to 450. Spread defrosted hash browns in bottom and up sides of a buttered pie or quiche dish. Pat hash browns with a paper towel to remove extra moisture. Bake until potatoes are golden brown, about 20 minutes. Remove from oven and lower the temperature to 350.
2. While crust bakes, whisk eggs, half-and-half and milk together. Add veggies, bacon, cheese and seasonings. Pour into potato crust and bake uncovered for 30-45 minutes at 350. (mine took almost an hour) Cool for 10 minutes before serving. Serves 6.
* For softer veggies, saute in a bit of olive oil for a few minutes before adding to quiche mix.
