Hash Brown Quiche Recipe

Hash Brown Quiche Recipe

We love to have guests stay with us, and this is a great dish to serve for breakfast. To save time in the morning, I sometimes make the hash brown crust and chop the ham, cheese and peppers the night before. As a teacher and farm wife, I'm always looking for easy recipes like this one. —Jan Peters, Chandler, Minnesota
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 50 min. + standing YIELD:6 servings


  • 3 cups frozen loose-pack shredded hash browns, thawed
  • 1/3 cup butter, melted
  • 1 cup diced fully cooked ham
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup diced green pepper
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper


  • 1. Press hash browns between paper towels to remove excess moisture. Press onto the bottom and up the sides of an ungreased 9-in. pie plate. Drizzle with butter. Bake at 425° for 25 minutes.
  • 2. Combine the ham, cheese and green pepper; spoon over crust. In a small bowl, beat eggs, milk, salt and pepper. Pour over all. Reduce heat to 350°; bake for 25-30 minutes longer or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Let stand for 10 minutes before cutting. Yield: 6 servings.

"Very Good. I did substitute bacon and red pepper because that's what I had on hand."

"My family loved these . I used extra egg and also tater tots as someone suggested. Tater tots seem to have oil or something added to them, I guess that's what holds chopped up taters all together. So next time I will hold back on the butter part for the crust. Good stuff!"

"We loved it. I made the crust with 3 shredded potatoes, 1/2 medium onion, a dollop of mayo and a handful of panko bread crumbs. I will use 4 eggs next time, as suggested by others."

"I make this often. I like to use thawed tater tots that I break up and push into a crust. It makes the quiche extra good, and adds a little more flavor to the crust."

"I have been making this for many years, since the year it came out,18 years , maybe? I have baked off the hash brown crusts the night before also have subbed bacon but sometimes omit the peppers due to family tastes. Our camping club use to love it, right next to crockpot oatmeal."

"This was pretty good. I used bacon since that's what we had, added mushrooms and used red pepper since I don't like green peppers. I also used 4 eggs as other reviewers mentioned, but if I use more eggs next time I'll also make a thicker hash brown kind of got lost with the extra eggs. All-in-all a good recipe that I will make again."

"It's difficult to critique/rate a recipe if the directions aren't followed. Made this quiche yesterday for Sunday brunch. I'm still getting phone calls today for the recipe. The only change made was to shred my own russets. Used sharp cheddar cheese and baby pit ham. What's nice about this recipe is that the night before the potato crust can be baked and the ham and green pepper can be diced. I've been cooking for over forty years and agree that this is definitely a blue ribbon winner. Thank you Jan and for Taste of Home for selecting this as a blue ribbon recipe."

"I got this recipe out of the TOH mag this was in and have made this more times and in many variations. Tonight is sauteed mushroom pieces and stems and onions, ham, and shredded colby cheese. I have also made this with mild italian sausage, bacon and breakfast sausage, almost anything will do! I usually use 4 to 6 eggs and season the crust with salt and pepper and sometimes cayanne pepper for a kick. I have just made the crust (seasoned) and served with bacon and eggs. I used to buy the frozen hash browns but now they are available fresh in bags, so I use one bag of the fresh and it works great! Don't be afraid to experiment with the ingredients! Next time I may try a florentine version with feta cheese!"
