This delicious & quick quiche with potato crust is so easy to make and the best part is – you pick out the meat. Let me show you!

Let me introduce one of my oldies but goodies: Quiche With Potato Crust.  I don’t know why I haven’t shared this before now.  It’s surely not because I haven’t been making it. It is a delicious dish and one of my favorite go-to recipes to make when company is coming. 

My friend Linda gave me this recipe after vacationing with her and her sweet family on the Outer Banks one summer.  She made this for breakfast one day, and I knew after the first bite I had to have to the recipe.

Quiche With Potato Crust

Quiche with potato crust is a non-specific name, huh?  Why just meat?  Well, I’m guessing it’s because this quiche can be made using any meat you want.  You see you have options with this recipe:

  • sausage
  • ham
  • bacon
  • chicken
  • hamburger

You can make it with any of the above or any other kind of meat you can think of.  Your choice will determine whether you’ll have it for breakfast, lunch, or supper. You choose.

Want a more traditional supper?

Use the following meats if you are an anti-breakfast-foods-for-supper kind of person

  • chicken 
  • hamburger
  • ham

Either of those meats work well when you’re going for a more traditional evening meal. 

What about breakfast for supper?

If you’re like me and you love to eating breakfast for supper sometimes, then have at it.  I LOVE breakfast for supper. If you’re going that route then choose the following meats.

  • sausage
  • bacon
  • ham

Ham is on both lists because it’s traditionally used with either meal.

Crispy Golden Potato Crust

You will love that the crust in this breakfast quiche is made with shredded potatoes.  You can even save time by using shredded frozen hash browns if you’d like.  The potato crust turns out nice and crispy on the edges and bottom.

Why is quiche with potato crust one of my favorite’s to have when company is coming?

  1. You can make it the night before and leave in the fridge ready to be baked in the morning.
  2. Prepare it ahead of time and freeze it. If serving it for breakfast take it out of the freezer and put it in the fridge to thaw out the night before. Or, if it’s for supper take it out of the freezer to thaw the day you plan to cook and serve it.


A Nice Holiday Dish

This hearty Quiche With Potato Crust is also a great dish to serve up during the holidays.  We’ve had it many times Christmas morning.  If you like green pepper, you can add it to give it a little festive color.

    Made the meat and potato quiche for dinner tonight. I used some diced ham I had in the freezer. Loved the potatoes being the crust. Hubby had seconds and gave it a thumbs up! I like recipes with options! With a salad this is a complete dinner but would be just as tasty for breakfast with fruit! Thanks Kim!

    1. Thank you for sharing, Joyce! I’m so glad you liked it! You’re right – depending on what you pair it with it can be fitting for any meal of the day.
