Potato Crust Quiche Recipe

Potato Crust Quiche Recipe

My husband and I have lived in four different states, and we've grown potatoes in every one of them. I mostly make this dish for family, but company loves it, too. It's almost a meal in itself—all you need to add is a salad. —Nancy Smith, Scottsdale, Arizona
