Party Recipe: Mini Hash Brown Crust Quiche!

Mini Quiche with a twist: HASH BROWN crusts!

If you’re looking for a go-to recipe for a holiday brunch, breakfast, or party, you have to try these mini hash brown crust quiche! I’ve been working with Alexia this season to create some delicious recipes for you (like these sweet potato crostinis). I wanted to challenge myself to use their hash browns in a unique way that is perfect for entertaining. My friend Jill and I always joke because mini quiche are our main little food to serve up at bridal showers, brunches, everything-we-ever-host, etc. This is definitely my new fave recipe for them.

Did you know you can use hash browns to make crust?

Basically (full recipe below), you thaw the hash browns and mix with melted butter. Then you press a bit down in each mini muffin tin (or regular size, or pie pan, or whatever pan your heart desires). Then you bake to slightly golden and fill with your quiche. Ta-da! They’re so cute and so delicious.

BEST QUICHE RECIPE: Uses Hash Browns as the crust!

There they are! Perfectly golden brown and colorful little quiches. I like mine with lots of red and green bell peppers (especially around the holidays) for color but quiche can be highly adapted to your favorite tastes and flavors.

Mini Hash Brown Crust Quiche

Ingredients

  • 1 package Alexia Hash Browns
  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1 green bell pepper
  • 1 cup parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 onion
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • chives, for garnish

Instructions

  1. Thaw hash browns by microwaving in microwave-safe bowl covered with paper towel at 20 second intervals, stirring in between. Once thawed, pat dry with a paper towel to remove any excess moisture.
  2. Stir in melted butter. Spray down mini muffin tin liberally with nonstick spray. Fill each cavity with a tablespoon of hash browns and press to form crust.
  3. Bake at 400 degrees for 10-15 minutes or until hash browns start to golden on edges. Remove from oven.
  4. Whisk together eggs, bell peppers (diced), parmesan cheese, onion (diced), salt, and pepper.
  5. Pour quiche on top of hash brown crusts. Lower oven temperature to 350 degrees and bake for 15-20 minutes or until lightly golden.
  6. Remove and garnish with chopped chives!

    Do you know if these reheat well? I’m thinking of making them for a large group ahead of our event and would want to reheat them, but don’t want them to be dry.

      Hi Karilee, I didn’t ever reheat mine but I imagine they would, you might want to reheat it in the oven for a few minutes rather than microwave in case they get soggy in the microwave.

    Have you been able to make these ahead and reheat? Thinking of making for a baby shower brunch and would like as much done in advance as possible. I’ve done it with regular quiches before but not sure about this. Thanks!
