Quiche Casserole

For New Years Eve dinner I made a Quiche Casserole. I took the idea from a Good Housekeeping January 2011 recipe but altered it a bit for our family.

I'm going to use the premade hash brown patties to line my casserole dish with next time. I tried making my own hash browns but failed because I didn't peel the potatoes beforehand and they turned greyish and not very pretty because of the skins, lol! So next year I'm using the premade hash brown patties!

Quiche Casserole

(Use a large rectangle casserole dish).

Ingredients:

8 Eggs
2 Egg Whites
2 cups Milk
Frozen Hash Brown Patties
1/4 teaspoon of Salt
Dash of Pepper
1 large Onion
1 Small package of chopped ham. (Around 4-6 Oz.)
1 Package of Bacon
4 Oz. Sharp Shredded Chedder Cheese
4 Oz. Shredded Sharp Swiss Cheese (I had to shred the swiss myself.)

Directions: Preheat Oven to 375 Degrees. It will take about 40 minutes to cook.

1. Line bottom of casserole dish with a little Olive Oil and lay hash brown patties so it covers the bottom of the dish completely.

2. Cook the package of bacon and set aside to cool. Chop onion finely and caramelize in a frying pan with a little olive oil. Also set aside.

3. In a large mixing bowl combine eggs, egg whites, milk, salt & pepper. Whisk well to combine. After whisking add in the chopped ham and shredded cheese. Crumple in the cooled bacon & onion. Mix well.

4. Pour the quiche mixture over the hash brown patties in the casserole dish. Cook for 40 minutes.

Happy New Year Everyone!!!
