Ingredients

  • 1 20 oz pkg refrigerated shredded hash browns
  • 4 tbsp butter melted
  • 4 large eggs beaten
  • 1 cup half & half
  • 1 cup chopped or diced ham
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced green onions
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Instructions

  • Press the hash browns between thick layers of paper towels until all the excess moisture's removed. Repeat if necessary.
  • Add the dry potatoes to a mixing bowl with the melted butter, toss everything to evenly coat.
  • Transfer the buttered potatoes to a 9" pie plate. Press them evenly out over the bottom of the dish and up the side to create a crust.
  • Bake the crust at 450° for 20-25 minutes, until the hash brown crust has turned golden brown and begun to crisp up.
  • To a large mixing bowl, add the rest of the ingredients. Stir them together until evenly combined.
  • Pour the egg mixture into the prepared hash brown crust.
  • Put the quiche in the oven, lower the temperature to 350°, and bake for 30 minutes. It's done when the quiche is golden brown on top and puffed. If you want to be sure, insert a toothpick into the center- if it comes out clean, it's cooked/set through.
