Recipe by: Erin Mahoney

With all your favorite baked potato toppings, this loaded potato quiche baked in a simple puff pastry crust with bacon and cheese is perfect for brunch.

Ingredients

  • 1 puff pastry sheet for crust
  • ½ cups crumbled cooked bacon (about 6 to 8 slices)
  • 1½ cups fresh broccoli florets, lightly steamed but still firm
  • 10 ounces Monterrey jack cheese, shredded
  • 1½ cups shredded russet potatoes, freshly shredded in food processor
  • 3 green onions, chopped, plus more for garnish if you like
  • 5 large eggs
  • 1 cup half and half
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • Garnish with sour cream

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Peel potatoes and shred, using a hand grater or a food processor. (Will need 1-2 potatoes, depending on size.
  3. Spray a 9-inch pie plate with cooking spray or rub with butter.
  4. Roll puff pastry sheet so it is slightly bigger than your pie plate. Press into plate and crimp edges, and set aside.
  5. In a large bowl, beat eggs lightly. Dip a pastry brush into the beaten eggs, and brush the crust of the puff pastry with the egg.
  6. Add half and half, salt and pepper. Whisk to combine.
  7. To the egg mixture, add bacon, green onions, broccoli and cheese. Stir to combine.
  8. Pour mixture into pie crust, and smooth into an even layer.
  9. Place into oven, and lay a sheet of aluminum foil lightly over the quiche to prevent over browning.
  10. Bake for 1 hour or until the middle is just set.
  11. Let cool slightly, and garnish with sour cream and green onion, if desired.
  12. Store in the refrigerator for 3-4 days. May be served warm or cold, depending on preference.
