Quiche lorraine with a hash brown crust

Make a quiche using a hash brown crust for a tasty & healthy alternative

Quiche makes a fantastic easy lunch or dinner option of you are looking for healthy meals that you can pre-prepare.

One of the fantastic things about quiche is that it’s a fabulous way to use up leftovers- most veg/cheeses will go and you can come up with some great concoctions!

I adore pastry but I save it for special treats only, and I find that using a potato or sweet potato crust is a great way to replace it- I’m not a huge fan of the crust less quiches as it always seems like something’s lacking.

You do need to pre-cook the crust, just as you would with pastry.

My Recipe

Serves: 4-6
Syns: Syn free if using cheese as healthy extra, 1 syn per slice if not.
Healthy Extra: part of A (cheese)

Ingredients

  • 4 medium sized potatoes (I tend to use maris piper)
  • 6 smoked bacon medallions (finely chopped) or 150g lean smoked lardons
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • salt and pepper
  • 4 eggs
  • 30g mature cheddar
  • Low calorie cooking spray or spray oil

Method

  1. Pre-heat oven to 180c. Peel the potatoes, and then grate them into a large pan of cold water. Once they are all grated, rinse them thoroughly under cold water in a colander
  2. Spray a quiche or pie dish with low calorie cooking spray
  3. 1 handful at a time, squeeze as much moisture as you can from the shredded potatoes and place into your dish.
  4. Once you have added in all of the potato, use the palm of your hand to press the potato down firmly and evenly around the dish to form a crust.
  5. Season with salt and pepper, spray with low-calorie cooking spray (or with spray oil-extra syns if on Slimming World), then pop into the oven to bake for about 30-35 minutes. You want the crust to be golden brown and crispy.
  6. In the meantime, you can fry the bacon pieces for a couple of minutes, then add in the onion and fry gently until softened. Set aside until the crust is ready.
  7. In a bowl, beat up the eggs with grated cheese, and salt and pepper
  8. When the crust is cooked, add in the bacon/onion mix, and then pour over the egg and cheese
  9. Bake in the oven for approximately 25 minutes until golden brown on top.
