This is beyond good. I used half and half cream instead of milk. I used a little less salt than called for and it's a good thing I did because the ham is very salty and this was almost too salty. Next time I'll use just 1/4t. I used equal parts mild cheddar cheese and mozzarella. I used part of a small pack of Hillshire Farms ham lunch meat, probably just 1/4 of the package and chopped it up. I used a lot more broccoli and I precooked it in the microwave.I didn't microwave this like the recipe said to. I baked it instead on 350 degrees F for 28 minutes. Your quiche is done when a knife that's been inserted in the center comes out clean.I think it would be best if you thawed the hash browns in a microwave-safe bowl then pressed them into a nonstick foil-lined pie plate because the hash browns stick to the glass plate a little. I also think an extra 1c. of shredded hash browns is needed.

This was very good! I sprinkled seasoning salt on the potatoes after the first 3 minutes to give them a little taste. The quiche turned out a little rubbery, but it was delicious! I am going to try to make it in the oven next time!

I add diced green pepper, diced red pepper, sliced scallions, quartered cherry tomatoes, and shredded carrot to increase the vegetable content in this dish. Adding these vegetables usually increases the volume to enough for 29-inch pie plates. I cook them both and cool the extra one, slip it into a 1 gallon plastic freezer bag, and freeze for use within 1 month.

Just made this. It's really good and so easy! I didn't have the dried minced onion, so I substituted with half teaspoonof onion powder.
