This recipe is a favorite of my neighborhood.  When we all get together for brunches or morning get-togethers, this recipe for FAVORITE BRUNCH QUICHE is always on the menu!  I can't remember where it originally came from, just that we've had it around for years, and that we all love it!  It has it all--the potatoes, the eggs, cheese and meat!  I usually make it up in two pie dishes--and freeze one and bake one. But if you want, you can just make it in a 9x13 casserole dish.  You can also add any meat you want--bacon, ham or sausage are great.  It's even good without meat!  They freeze great, or, you can just store them in the refrigerator and bake it the next day or two.  We love this quiche with hot, homemade cinnamon rolls and fresh fruit.
24 oz. shredded has browns, thawed
1 cube butter
1 cup 1/2 and 1/2
6 eggs, beaten
1 1/2 cups grated cheddar cheese
1 1/2 cups grated Swiss cheese
1 1/2 cups cooked crumbled bacon, or cubed ham, or pre-cooked, drained sausage
1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt
Butter or spray two 9-inch pie plates.  Press thawed hash brown into pie plates, packing well, evenly on the bottom and up the sides. (If needed, you may have to lightly press out all moisture in the hash browns with paper toweling first).  Melt butter and pour equally over the potatoes in the two pie plates.  Bake at 375 for 20 minutes.  When finished, add meat, then grated cheeses that have been combined together, into the shells.  In another bowl,  beat eggs and 1/2 and 1/2 together; add seasoned salt.  Pour over the tops of the two pie shells, evenly dividing.  (At this point they can be refrigerated for up to 2 days, or frozen).  Bake at 375 degrees for 35-40 minutes.  Let sit for 5 minutes before  cutting.  DELICIOUS!

  1. This is my family's favorite as well- basic is the key with them! Only we use the hash brown patties and line the casserole dish with them~ I'll have to try it your way which would work with pie plates and others that weren't square or rectangle.
