Artichoke & Ham Quiche with Cheesy Hash Brown Crust

6 to 8 servings

The crust is as hearty and savory as the filling! You start with delicious Idahoan® Steakhouse Cheesy Hashbrowns to make the crust. Then you fill it with ham, Swiss cheese, veggies and eggs. Together they make for a one-of-a-kind quiche -- and it bakes in just 45 minutes!


  • For the crust:
  • 2 cups Idahoan Steakhouse Cheesy hash browns, rehydrated
  • 1/4 cup each, zucchini, sweet potato and carrot, shredded
  • 4 tablespoon butter, melted
  • 1 tsp salt

Steakhouse hash browns over hash brown mixture and blend.

Using the bottom of a

measuring cup, press mixture into the bottom and up the sides to firmly form a crust.

and the edges begin to crisp. While crust bakes, make the filling.

For the filling:

Blend the eggs and cream until smooth. Stir in the artichokes, leeks, ham, cheese and


When the hash brown crust is ready, lower the oven temperature to 350 degrees F and pour the filling into the crust. Bake for 30 minutes then sprinkle the crunchy onion topping on the quiche. Continue to bake for another 15 minutes or until the quiche is light golden brown and firm in the middle. Quiche will settle as it cools.
