Potato Crusted Quiche {FIF #149}

Friday, January 3, 2014

My husband is a great cook.
He just has that knack for combining ingredients
and making something delicious, usually without a recipe.  There have been a few....flops,
but most of time we are both surprised by how deliciously it has turned out.
Today is a SNOW DAY!
We got about 8 inches of snow overnight.  Needless to say, my school was cancelled.
Ryan stayed home too, because he hasn't been feeling well and why take chances with dangerous roads?
To start our morning off right, he decided to make a quiche.
While I don't have Celiac Disease, I do have issues with digesting gluten and avoid it whenever I can.
This quiche has a potato crust instead of the standard quiche crust made with flour.
This morning it not only came out delicious, but so beautiful I had to share.
Look at those curly potato slices!

Here's the recipe in case you're interested:
3 potatoes peeled and sliced on a mandolin
1/2 chopped white onion
8oz frozen broccoli florets thawed
1/2 cup grated cheese of your choice (we used a combo of gruyere and swiss)
4 eggs
1/2 cup milk (we used almond milk)
1tsp vegetable shortening
1tbsp olive oil
Coat the inside of an 8inch (x 3inches deep) baking dish with vegetable shortening.  Line the inside of baking dish with sliced potatoes that have been tossed in olive oil and seasoned with salt and pepper. Overlap layers of potatoes on bottom and sides of baking dish.  Usually two layers.  Bake crust only for 30 minutes at 425 degrees. 
Combine grated cheese, diced onion, and broccoli florets in a bowl.  Season with salt and pepper. Beat eggs in separate bowl adding the milk to mixture.
 When crust starts to brown on the edges remove from oven and add broccoli mixture and pour eggs over evenly.  Place back in oven for approx. 45min or until browned on top. 
Let stand for about 15 minutes before serving.
Don't miss new pins added to the Friday Inspiration File...#149!
See you later.
I'll be in my craft room!
