Potato Crusted Quiche

Potato Crusted Quiche // 24 Carrot Life #vegetarian #cheddar #eggs

I’m back from a week in Miami and was welcomed with snow and ice. Yay!

I’m prepared to brave it for a little while longer after the warm reprieve but I continue craving lots of hot drinks and foods to keep me sane. I’m headed to San Francisco in a week, so I guess I’m not suffering too much.

Potato Crusted Quiche // 24 Carrot Life #vegetarian #cheddar #eggs

This quiche is a little different than your run-of-the-mill quiche because of it’s potato crust. I’m officially in love with it. The crust is crispy on the outside edges and is reminiscent of hash browns. I’m also still taking any excuse to continue using the Cabot Cheddar Cheese I received a few weeks back. Throw any veggies  you have on hand or prefer for this vegetarian quiche. Or sneak in some ham or bacon if you’d like. Just sautée it with the onion before you add it in. Enjoy!

  6. Combine vegetables, cheddar cheese, salt and pepper, and eggs in a large bowl and stir to combine.
