Canadian Bacon, Green Chile, & Cheddar Quiche with a Shredded Potato Crust

Canadian Bacon, Green Chile, & Cheddar Quiche with a Shredded Potato Crust

My husband was going to help our friends move so I made this quiche to give him a filling and hearty breakfast for the heavy lifting he was going to be doing all day long.  I really love the potato crust because it gives the quiche a great flavor without all the fat from a regular pastry crust.  The green chiles tasted fantastic with the Canadian bacon and cheddar.  This quiche is perfect for breakfast, brunch, lunch, or dinner.

    I am a Canadian and we do not call that Canadian bacon. We call that back bacon.

    Pork loin is made up of two types of meat with a bone stuck in the middle. The top portion, cured, is what back bacon is made out of. The bottom portion is the pork tenderloin.

    And there really is very little difference in taste between back bacon and cured ham, although back bacon is sometimes
