For a twist on traditional quiche, try this savory version with a crispy potato crust.


  • 4 eggs
  • 1- 1/2 cups whipping cream
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/8 tsp ground red pepper
  • 1 pkg. (3 oz.) dried tomatoes, chopped (1 cup)

  • 1- 1/2 cups shredded Swiss cheese (6 oz.)
  • Crispy Potatoe Crust: cooking spray
  • 1 large baking potato, thinly sliced


  • Crust:Heat oven to 425°F. Coat deep 9-inch pie pan with cooking spray. Arrange potato slices in bottom and up sides of pan, overlapping slightly, to form crust. Spray potatoes with cooking spray. Bake in 425°F oven until potatoes are lightly browned and slightly crisp, 20 to 25 minutes.
  • Meanwhile beat eggs, cream, basil, oregano, salt and pepper in medium bowl until blended.
  • Remove crust from oven. Reduce oven setting to 350°F. Layer tomatoes, green onions, ham and cheese evenly in crust. Pour egg mixture slowly over cheese. Bake in center of 350°F oven until center is almost set but jiggles slightly when pan is gently shaken and knife inserted near center comes out clean, 40 to 50 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes.
