Ingredients
Hash Brown Crust
  • 1 20oz package hash browns (I used the fresh kind found in the refrigerator section near the eggs)
  • 1/3 cup shredded cheddar
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
  • PAM® Spray Pump Olive Oil
Broccoli and Cheddar Quiche
  • 6 eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup chopped broccoli, fresh
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar
  • 1/2 tsp salt (you can seasoned salt if you want an added kick)
  • 1/4-1/2 tsp ground black pepper (I used 1/2 tsp, since I love pepper, but feel free to use 1/4 tsp)
Optional Add-ins
  • other veggies
  • bacon
  • sausage
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Using your PAM® Spray Pump Olive Oil, spray 1-2 pumps into each muffin cup of your 12-cup muffin tin (or two 6-cup muffin tins).
  2. In a bowl, mix hash browns, 1/3 cup cheddar cheese, and black pepper together.
  3. Place about 2 Tbsp, give or take, of the hash brown mixture into each muffin cup. Using your hands or a Tbsp measuring spoon (as pictured above), press/form the mixture into the shape of a crust (up the sides of the muffin tin as well).
  4. Give each muffin cup one final spray of PAM® Spray Pump Olive Oil (this adds a bit of extra flavor).
  5. Bake for 12-13 minutes.
  6. Once the crust is done, reduce the heat to 375 degrees.
  7. In a bowl, mix eggs, milk, salt, and pepper together. Set aside.
  8. In each hash brown cup, add a few pieces of broccoli and a little bit of cheese.
  9. Pour egg mixture over the top, filling each cup 3/4 of the way full (the eggs will puff while baking).
  10. Bake for 16-18 minutes, or until quiche have puffed up and are no longer wet.
  11. Allow to cool for a couple of minutes before removing from the pan.
  12. Enjoy!
