  1. Perfect for Saturday morning here in blizzardly Iowa. I will no doubt have 3+ large starving teen-age "men" to feed for breakfast, and an errant package of hash browns in the freezer will pull this all together! Now if Arlene and Rochelle (my laying hens) could pop out a few more eggs....

  2. This sounds like a wonderful Saturday morning breakfast here...the kids love a hot breakfast when they're not hurrying off to school and I have time to make it after the morning milking!

  3. Looks delicious!! Perfect for when company is in town.

  4. Sounds great for a Saturday lunch or afternoon snack. I do not keep hash browns in freezer but will add to my list. Often on a Saturday I will make a quiche in the same way. I use eggs,milk, cheese and whatever appropriate meats/veggies I have in the fridge. I used to use purchased pie crusts but homemade taste so much better. I now keep a bunch in freezer, frozen in individual discs, and they thaw out in no time.
    Thanks girls for all of the wonderful recipes and inspiration.

  5. Anneliese, I have a similar recipe...but I'm liking yours better. My recipe does not include frying the potatoes first in a stovetop pan, it goes straight into the oven. And one of my biggest problems of making this quiche is that the top gets overdone b/c I'm trying to make sure the potatoes get cooked. Your method should take care of that problem...thanks so much for sharing!

  6. Oooo. This looks so good! Printed and ready to go. Thank you!

  7. Oh, I'd love a piece of this right now!

  8. Mmmm that looks delicious. I have a similar recipe that uses raw grated potatoes - hash browns sound a lot easier!

  9. Add some green chilies and that would be perfect anytime! ekh

  10. I love hashbrowns & I love pie - win/win!!!

  11. Sounds wonderful! Perfect for brunch.

  12. That will be on this girls list.
    I always love making new ideas for brunch...that are tasty and simple and all the products are in my house.

  13. Now THAT is my kind of comfort food!!!

  14. This is so perfect for taking to a friend. For me? I will serve it with homemade tomato soup. Thx.


  15. My neighbor has a sick husband so will bake and take to her. It looks delish, will make a second for my family. Good thing the hens are laying a few eggs again.
    Thank you for sharing all the nummy food ideas.

  16. What? No Garlic? No Jalapinos? This stuff is BLAND!!!

  17. Great recipe...I altered mine a little. I fried up 6 strips of bacon first and then in the bacon fat fried up my hashbrowns....this seemed to help add some more flavor :)

  18. I prepared this dish for lunch today and everyone enjoyed it! The seasoning was very good. It's a keeper! TY!

  19. I made this for supper and it was delicious! At the table, we topped our servings with salsa. Yum!
    Thanks! :)

  20. I am going on 45 minutes for baking time and it still is not done. anyone else have this problem??

  21. I'd say take it out and let it sit for five minutes. Can't see it not being done.

  22. I'm making this to take for snacks at church this morning. It sounds great and I love how all of your recipes always call for common items that I keep stocked in my kitchen. Thanks!!


    1. I've never cooked it in a crock pot, but you could try it on high setting. Be sure to spray or butter the pot well before adding the ingredients. I do not know how long it would take. It may take 1 1/2 - 2 hours.

  24. Winner Winner for breakfast lunch or dinner!

  25. Dont you have to cook the bacon first before putting in??
