  • 1 Stick of butter cut in half
  • 2 Tsp Salt
  • 2 Cups Baby Spinach
  • ½ Red Pepper
  • ¼ onion

Combine butter, shredded potatoes and salt. Press potato mixture into pie pan. Bake at 400 degrees for about half an hour or until potatoes start to crisp. Remove from oven

Dice peppers and onions, slice mushrooms and tomatoes and shred the cheese using a clean box grater (with the biggest holes)

Top potatoes with the about ¾ of the cheese leaving some for the top later. In the same large pan used before for the butter, melt the rest of the butter and cook the peppers and onions for about 4 minutes on medium heat. Add the spinach and cook for another minute while stirring, add pepper. Add this mixture on top of the potatoes and cheese.

Crack the eggs and scramble. Add milk and mix together. Pour into pie pan gently. Top with tomatoes and mushrooms. Bake at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes until eggs are cooked through. Let the quiche rest outside of the oven for about 5 minutes and cut. Top with remaining cheddar and serve! Serves 6.

YUM! Keep 'em coming!
I've said this in person, but I like your picks especially because I usually have most, if not all, ingredients on hand...

Any chance I can put this recipe together the night before and bake in the morning?
