You guys. Please stop everything and put this on your list of things-to-make-and-eat-ASAP. I mean. It’s quiche and hash browns combined into one delicious dish! Your taste buds will sing with the first bite of this. It’s actually really easy to make, and cheap too, but you can serve it on special occasions if you want because it seems fancy! I am planning to make this for Mother’s Day brunch this year, speaking of which, I am so excited to actually be with my mom this year! Living far away from her makes it hard for me to express my love through food…

The players. I happen to think that having good cheese is important for this. Tillamook, anyone? Also, I tried applewood smoked bacon for the first time when I made this and I’m hooked.

  5. Spray the mixture with oil spray. Bake for 30 minutes.

  2. When the crust is baked, switch the oven to 350 degrees.
  3. Cover the crust layer with bacon, onion and garlic mixture. Next, sprinkle a layer of cheese. Throw in a handful of spinach. Pour egg mixture over all of that and bake for 25 minutes or until cooked through.

    I have a question about the number of eggs, and egg yolks…if I am doubling this recipe, do I have a total of 4 eggs and an additional 4 egg yolks?

    This looks amazing! I might have to try making this over the weekend. I was surprised by the addition of cinnamon, but I’m willing to try it!

      It is a really good addition! You can barely tell it’s there but it adds a lot to the flavor.

    I have been making a version of this for years, it is a family favorite. We have it once a week. It is cheap, easy and quick. It can be served hot or cold which makes it great for busy nights when everyone is eating at different times. I put green onions, red peppers and ham in mine.

      Sounds delicous!
