Quiche with Potato Crust

I love Quiche and here is my original Quiche recipe with my secret ingredient.  But then one day i was surfing other food blogs and saw this cool quiche recipe from Eat Drink Pretty that had a potato crust and i had to try this out.  So the other weekend i wanted to make a quiche and didn’t feel like making the pie crust and instead used a potato crust. It was really simple and easy.

Quiche is a great brunch food, not only that; Quiche makes an excellent left over the day after.  You can put almost anything you want in a Quiche, but the below recipe are my favorite ingredients. 

They key to any Quiche is to Dijon mustard, that is what I think makes the delicious flavor of the whole thing.

Let me know what you like to put in your Quiche.

      Rebekah – You know i didn’t even think of it as Gluten free but you are correct. Can you educate me and let me know why most people go gluten free is it alergies or other health reasons usually or both?

    This is such a great idea. I haven’t had quiche since cutting out gluten and I’ve sorely missed it. I’m definitely going to make this on the weekend. Thanks!

    I just made this with sweet sliced ham mushroom and broccoli. I also used Swiss and mozzarella cheeses. All I can say is yum yum.. Even my fiancée loved it.. He actually had 2 pieces.. Usually, he will try my gluten free but barely goes back for seconds… Definitely will make again…. Thank you
