- 1 cup shredded Swiss cheese
- 1 cup diced fully cooked ham
- 2 large eggs

Not really a quiche because it is not egg based BUT it is very tasty. The hash browns are a very creative twist. This dish bakes up and serves well. Several people said the Swiss cheese overpowered and made the dish not go with the rest of the brunch. Next time we make this I will swap out the Swiss for another type of cheese. Possible combos: Pepper jack, cheddar, colby jack. Also some of the packaged shredded cheese flavor blends - Mexican, Italian, etc. would be interesting. Just not Swiss.

My family LOVES this quiche! It is requested many times throughout the year. I put the bag of hash browns in the fridge the day before and in a colander on the counter the night before. I use a no lint towel to wring out the hash browns. Don't over butter the hash browns for the first baking. I have tried other cheeses and the combo of Swiss and Pepper Jack cheese in the original recipe reigns supreme!

I made this for Sunday breakfast and I and it is soooo good. Pretty easy too. I used Fontina for the Swiss and added chopped chives and a small jar of pimento, upped the eggs to three and used half and half for the cream called for in the recipe - Fabulous flavor!!

Too much cheese and not enough egg for me to think of this as "quiche". But it has potential... if I were to make it again, I'd halve the cheese and add 2 more eggs.

We used a combination of colby jack and fontina along with a sweet onion. Easy to make and a good use for leftover ham.

So easy, gluten-free, and easy to modify. Didn't have heavy cream so I substituted half and half. Used Colby-Jack and Cheddar cheese since that's what I had. Definitely doing again for brunch!

This was so good and easy! I changed a few things. Instead of the swiss and pepper jack cheese, I just used a mixture of shredded Colby Jack and Cheddar cheese and it was so good! And instead of ham, I used browned ground sausage, which was delicious! It turned out great, and was so simple to make!
