“Tasty quiche recipe, and a bit different than your usual one. You can jazz it up with some herbs if you like. Easy and tasty, without all the hassle of rolling out a pastry crust.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • Crust
  • 3 cups finely shredded potatoes
  • 3 tablespoons oil
  • Filling
  • 1 onion, grated
  • 1 cup grated cheese (cheddar or gruyere)
  • 1 cup slivered ham
  • 2 eggs
  • 12 cup milk
  • salt and pepper


  1. Mix oil and potatoes.
  2. Press into a buttered 9 inch pie plate.
  3. Bake in a 425*F oven for 15 minutes.
  4. Spread onion in crust, then sprinkle on cheese.
  5. Top with ham slivers.
  6. Beat together egg, milk and seasonings.
  7. Pour over ham.
  8. Bake at 350*F for 30 minutes, or until a knife inserted near the centre comes out clean.
  9. Serves 4.
  10. P.S. After you have grated the potatoes, squeeze as much water as you can out of them with your hands. This makes a drier mixture and you won't have a soggy crust.
