Potato Crusted Quiche

I made this for a worship gathering this morning and it was yummy!!  Would make it again for sure!

Potato Crusted Quiche
recipe by me :)


  • 6-8 med. sized potatoes (russet or red)
  • 8 eggs
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 pepper, diced
  • 1 onion diced
  • dash nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp parsley
  • 1/2 tsp basil
  • 1 tbsp butter and some oil
  • 8 oz shredded cheese (your choice) plus 3-4 oz for top
  • salt & pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups milk or half and half

Peel potatoes and  rinse.  Preheat oven to 400.  Grease 2 pie plates.  With mandolin or wide peeler, slice potatoes lengthwise very thin.  Line both pie plates with potato slices until completely covered in an even layer.  Spray with canola oil or brush lightly with oil.  Sprinkle with salt and a little pepper if you wish.  Bake for 20 minutes or until potatoes are fork tender.  While crust is baking, dice onion and pepper,  sauté in butter and a little oil.  Season as cooking.  Cook over medium high heat until slightly browned, about 5-7 minutes.  While that is cooking, crack eggs in a large bowl.  Whisk in sour cream, milk, cooked onion mixture, 8 oz. cheese and spices.  Pour over  evenly over both crusts when finished, top with a sprinkle of cheese and place back into the oven.  Reduce heat to 350 and bake another 40-50 minutes, until knife comes out clean when put in center.  Let cool 10 minutes lightly covered before serving.
