Prep Time: 20 Minutes

Time to Table: 50 Minutes

Serves: 6

Ingredients

  • 3 cups frozen shredded potatoes
  • 2 cups frozen broccoli florets, thawed
  • 3 tablespoons canola oil, divided
  • 1 cup thinly sliced leeks
  • 1 cup 2% milk
  • 1 cup Daisy Cottage Cheese
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup shredded Swiss cheese

Directions

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Lightly coat a 9-inch pie dish with non-stick spray. Mix the shredded potatoes with 2 tablespoons of oil. Spread the potatoes evenly in the pie plate. Bake in the preheated oven until the potatoes begin to brown (about 15 minutes). Remove from the oven and set aside. Meanwhile heat the remaining 1 tablespoon of oil in a skillet. Sauté the broccoli and leeks until leeks are tender (about 5-10 minutes). While the vegetables are cooking, whisk together the milk, cottage cheese, and eggs. Reduce the oven temperature to 400 degrees. Layer the sautéed vegetables on top of the browned potatoes. Sprinkle with the Swiss cheese. Pour the egg mixture on top of the cheese. Bake the quiche for 30 minutes or until the egg is set. *Tip: for fun shapes, try using packaged pie crust in place of the shredded potato layer in a disposable pie plate.

Wanda, you didn't miss anything. It's not important, but the ad that got me here showed a quiche baked in a crust that had been shaped into a 4 leaf clover arrangement. Mostly I was interested in a quiche made with cottage cheese. But, the grated potato base in this recipe reminded me of a cauliflower bake that uses grated potatoes in the same way, which I haven't made for a long time. I think I'll just make that instead!

Wanda, I have made a crustless quiche, as it has less carbs. I do use store bought pie crusts from time to time. It kind of looks like they forgot it. In the facebook picture, it's cute with the 4 leaf clover shape of the crust.

The picture was of pie shell, quiche cooked in it, but the recipe didn't call for a pie shell. The only quiche I have eaten has been cooked in the pie shell. Did I miss something?

Pretty tasty! Did not have leeks, so I substituted some diced onion. Added salt

There is no mention for a pan size. I guessed 8" pie tin: Wrong! Try a 9", but increase the potatoes to 3
