Spinach Quiche with Potato Crust Recipe

Spinach Quiche with Potato Crust Recipe

I love this recipe because it is great to use up leftover mashed potatoes and vegetables, especially the day after a big meal. You can substitute sweet Italian sausage for the bacon if you want a heartier quiche. —Heather King, Frostburg, Maryland
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 55 min. + standing YIELD:8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 package (24 ounces) refrigerated mashed potatoes
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 8 ounces sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 5 ounces frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry (about 1/2 cup)
  • 6 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled or 1/3 cup bacon bits
  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh rosemary or 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup 2% milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

Directions

  • 1. Preheat oven to 350°. Press mashed potatoes onto bottom and up sides of a greased 9-in. deep-dish pie plate. Brush with 1 tablespoon oil. Bake 30 minutes or until edges are golden brown.

Stir in spinach, bacon and rosemary; spoon over crust. In a small bowl, whisk eggs, milk and pepper until blended; stir in cheese. Pour over mushroom mixture.
