3 cups shredded frozen hash browns; thawed & drained
4 tbsp butter, melted
4 large eggs, beaten
1 cup half & half
1 cup cooked bacon; chopped (you could also use ham or sausage)
1/2 cup green onions
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
salt and black pepper
1. Preheat oven to 450° F
2. Gently press the drained hash browns between paper towels to dry them as best as possible. In a 9-inch pie plate, toss the hash browns with the melted butter. Press them into the bottom and up the sides to forma crust.
3. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown and starting to crisp.
4. In a large mixing bowl, combine the remaining ingredients. When the hash brown crust is ready, pour the egg mixture over it and return to the oven.
5. Lower the oven temperature to 350° F and bake for about 30 minutes or until the quiche is a light golden brown on top and puffed.
