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.
Canadian Bacon, Green Chile, & Cheddar Quiche with a Shredded Potato Crust:
- 1 1/2 – 2 russet potatoes, peeled and grated
- Olive oil or olive oil cooking spray
- 1/2 cup of Canadian Bacon, chopped
- 1 (3oz) can of green chiles, diced
- 1 tomato, diced
- 1/2 cup of cheddar cheese
- 7-8 eggs, beaten
- 1/4 cup of milk
- Sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste
How to Make a Canadian Bacon, Green Chile, & Cheddar Quiche with a Shredded Potato Crust
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Coat a pie dish with cooking spray.
Peel then shred the two potatoes onto 2 paper towels; add another two paper towels to the top and press all the liquid out of the potatoes. Smash the shredded potatoes all over the bottom and sides of the pie pan, making sure to press them firmly. Spray with cooking spray and season with sea salt, freshly cracked pepper, and garlic powder, to taste. Bake in the oven for 13-15 minutes. Remove from oven and set aside.
No accompanying story! Looks excellent to me!
A great quiche is something I need to perfect. The bacon, green chilies sound like they would be delicious in this one.
Looks & sounds perfect! Still haven't made a potato crust…
Oh my…I love the potato crust, but I haven't done the shredded potatoes. Can't wait to do this.
I've made a quiche with a hash brown crust before, and it really is a great addition. Love the idea of adding green chiles.
thats a easy way to make a quiche

Wow that looks so delicious. I'm reading this at 5:20 in the morning and it makes me want to head for the kitchen and start peeling potatoes – but alas, I'm trying to cut back a little.
That looks like the perfect breakfast to me..

I've tried your potato crust before, Pam, and love it. What a great combination of ingredients in this quiche. I'll add some roasted poblanos from the market.
I'm not a huge fan of quiches, but this could definitely make me become one. It looks wonderful!!

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
Quiche is my favorite! I bake one and eat off it all weekend – Lovely

I like discovering new crust ideas, and this is a goodie. More goodness in potatoes than in flour, I think! Looks delicious 🙂
Real men do eat quiche, after all. I like that hash brown crust, it really boosts the heartiness of this already awesome dish.
The potato crust is a brilliant idea, I've never seen that before. The filling sounds delicious too!
