What is this?

I feel that some of my best recipes come from when we are spending time at our little cottage in the middle of Nowhere Wisconsin.  I am not certain why.  I think that it is the challenge of using what we have on hand there, and most times it’s not a lot.

This past weekend was the first time in a long time that we were at our cottage.  Because of this, we literally had nothing on hand.  On the way up, I stopped at the gas station and ran inside to do a quick shop.  When I saw that they had a package of hash browns and eggs, I knew immediately what I was going to make for breakfast, this hash brown quiche with bacon.

When I saw that they had a package of hash browns and eggs, I knew immediately what I was going to make for breakfast, this hash brown quiche with bacon. After getting some other staples like cheese, butter and milk, I drove up the rest of the way thinking about how I was going to put this together

We add bacon to this easy breakfast quiche recipe but you can use whatever you have on hand.

Although we add bacon to this fast and easy breakfast idea, use your imagination and go with your own taste! Your taste buds and refrigerator are the limits of what you can add to this gluten-free quiche. Here are just a few possibilities:

  • Ham
  • Sausage
  • Goat cheese
  • Cherry tomatoes
  • Mushrooms

I assembled all of my ingredients and called Dan into the kitchen.  After telling him what I was thinking, he ran and got his phone and started taking pictures.  (No fancy camera this weekend!) This is scary sometimes because you don’t know how the recipe will turn out.  However, I had a good feeling about this easy breakfast quiche.

This easy breakfast quiche goes together very quickly.  I kept it simple with just cheese and bacon because that is what the kids like.  However, you can put anything that your heart desires.  I personally think mushrooms and ham would be delicious. It’s the weekend, take the time for that second cup of coffee and try this hash brown quiche, I think you’re going to really enjoy it!  -Scott
