Meat and Potato Quiche

My little ladies and I enjoyed a sweet girls lunch one day recently when Samuel had gone down for his nap. I really like quiche, but David is not a fan - so I treated us at lunch time with a yummy warm lunch!

This recipe is from the More with Less cookbook!


In a pie pan stir together: 3 c. shredded raw potato and 3 T. vegetable oil. Press into pie pan to create a crust shape. Bake at 425 for 15 minutes.

Over crust, sprinkle on: 1 c. shredded cheese, 3/4 c. ham or chicken, 1/4 c. chopped onion.

In a bowl whisk together: 1 c. evaporated milk (I used this substitute), 2 eggs, salt and pepper. Pour over other ingredients and sprinkle with parsley.

Bake for 30 minutes. Yum!

Looks great! i'm on a low carb diet so I would sub the potato for Cauliflower but wow what a nice treat to give the girls. And the table looks so cute! You really have an eye for making everyday special.

That looks yummy! Not something my huby would eat, but I enjoy them.

That looks and sounds wonderful. I think my husband would like it. The table setting is beautiful...I love the plates.

We all love quiche. Have a look at my quiche recipe on my blog - my husband loves it!
Your table looks very inviting!

Looks like a delightful time!! :-) And I really like that book and similar ones from Elizabeth George! I recently purchased, "God's Wisdom for Little Girls" by her, and it is filled with darling illustrations of biblical virtues.

I have never made quiche, but this makes me want to try! Blessings to you and your sweet family.

This sounds like one I make called hashbrown quiche. Mine calls for eggs and milk and not the evaporated milk. I am blessed the my boys and DH like this. Ü We have used ham, sausage or bacon, just whatever we have on hand. Also whatever cheeses we have.

What a lovely way to spend time with your girls.

I am amazed at the amount of detail went into dressing your table for your girls' lunch. So often, I save the special touches for guests only. Since my daughter is home from school today, I hope to make a special lunch table for the two of us. It will be potato soup leftover from last night. But I am going to save that quiche recipe for another day. Sounds good! Have you ever used the frozen shredded potatoes?

My dh is also not a fan of Quiche...must be a "man" thing...love your table setting.

we have "a little boy after God's own heart"! I love those books!

I love quiche but have been staying away from the pie crust part because of my gluten allergy. I never thought to use potatoes for the crust. That was my "duh" moment today...lol Thanks for sharing the recipe!

I love the thought of a warm lunch. Exspecially with the fall chill coming soon. I will dido this idea soon. My boys have the Little Boys after God's own heart book (like the girls) and love Jim and Elizabeth George's writting. I have wanted to get the girls book for my daughter even though she is 17. I just know it would still be sweeet to read to her. smiles, Angelia in Tx

Well, I'm so not a fan of quiche of any kind, but I'm in love with how you dressed your table up! Can you share your the secret of your table covering? It looks like a simple tablecloth, but there's nothing hanging over the edge? Do you have it secured under the table somehow? Love it!

Tina Leigh said...

Looks good to me! What a sweet time.

Tina said...

Sounds good and easy! I have a bunch of potatoes I need to use up,too.TFS!

Ginger said...

I love quiche, too, and my son eats sushi, so my goodness, he should like this. I love the ease of the recipe. I"m trying this as soon as I get the potatoes.

Dear Ax Lady,

Thanks for loving the table! :) It is a thrift store find - redone. I painted the whole thing and stapled a piece of oil cloth over the top. So, it is pulled around the edges and stapled in place. I posted on it at some point - in May I think.

Hope that helps!
Monica
