We hardly ever post savory breakfast recipes and I’m not sure why as Cade and I definitely love a savory breakfast. This hash browns ham frittata is one of our personal favorites but to be honest I’m not sure if it should be considered a frittata or a quiche, but for us it’s delicious and that’s what matters.
What is a Quiche?
Quiche is a baked flan or tart with a savory filling thickened with eggs.
You start out by browning some shredded hash browns in a pan with some oil. Cook each side until golden and then set the first batch on a plate while you finish the second. The second batch will be the bottom crust while the first is going to be torn apart in strips and pressed against the sides.
How do You Cook Hash Browns?
- Shred potatoes into a large bowl filled with cold water. Stir until water is cloudy, drain, and cover potatoes again with fresh cold water. …
- Heat clarified butter in a large non-stick pan over medium heat. …
- Cook potatoes until a brown crust forms on the bottom, about 5 minutes.
After the crust is in place, pull out a new pan and saute your peppers and ham. Now, I know this is a bit of back and forth but pull your ham off the hot burner and add the potato pan back on so the cold crust can start to reheat
In a bowl, whisk your eggs, milk, cheese and seaoning. You can skip the milk if you needd to or even add water but I’ve found the eggs are fluffier with it. Mix the ham saute with your egg mixture and pour it in the hash brown crust. Let it cook for only about 30-45 seconds so the edges just start to set.
Now toss the whole thing in the oven for 10-12 minutes and Cade likes to serve his with a dash of hot sauce, I like mine as is or I secretly like a drizzle of ketchup, don’t judge me.
