Ingredients

Hash Brown Crust

  • 4 Cups Frozen Hash Browns
  • 2 Tbsp Butter
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • Butter

Filling

  • 1/2 tsp Butter
  • 4 Slices Bacon
  • 1/2 small Onion finely chopped
  • 1 Garlic clove minced
  • Spinach to taste
  • 3/4 Cup Cheddar Cheese

Egg Mixture

  • 2 Egg Yolks
  • 1 Cup Milk
  • 3/4 Cup Heavy Cream
  • 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp Salt

Instructions

Prep

  • Thaw frozen potatoes and squeeze as much moisture out of them as possible. (This is easiest if you lay them across a layer of paper towels to thaw!)
  • Sautee Bacon, Onion and Garlic together in butter until bacon is starting to brown (but not crispy) and onions are clear. Set aside.
  • Shred Cheese

Hash Brown Crust

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees
  • Grease a 9" quiche dish with butter
  • Add potatoes, butter and salt to a bowl and mix well.
  • Pour potato mixture into the quiche dish and press across the bottom and sides with your hands or a spatula.
  • Spray the mixture with oil spray. Bake for 30 minutes.

Filling

  • Add eggs, milk, cream, salt, and cinnamon to a bowl. Whisk until well mixed.
  • When the crust is baked, switch the oven to 350 degrees.
  • 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.
