This is my latest version of a veggie quiche!

Shredded potato crusted quiche with veggies – of your choice – because after all, cooking is an art form! What better canvas to experiment on than our taste buds?

Shredded Potato Crusted Quiche with Veggies

As someone who enjoys whipping up delicious meals, I’ve found that my best dishes often come from a stroke of creativity in the kitchen.

Just like this shredded potato crusted quiche (with veggies I had on hand) that I made recently. It turned out to be a keeper recipe!

It’s that sense of discovery that makes cooking so exciting.

So go ahead, break the rules of your usual recipes and add your own twists! You might be surprised at how delicious your creations can be.

This isn’t the same old omelets or scrambled eggs! This shredded potato crusted quiche recipe is exactly what you need to get the perfect twist on breakfast classics.

It’s so simple, yet scrumptious. The crust is made up of shredded potato hash browns, which are pre-baked and then filled with a combination of vegetables. It’s a mouthwatering and healthy option for anyone who wants to add a hint of variety to their culinary quests.

Btw, it’s a great breakfast recipe, but I made it for dinner. Sometimes, that’s just what I want!

I served it with oat nut bread toast, which is also super yummy!

And we’re off…

Shredded potato crusted quiche recipe


  • 2 cups shredded potatoes (or hash browns would work)
  • 4 – 5 eggs*
  • 1 cup shredded cheese
  • 1/2 cup diced bell peppers (at least)
  • 1/4 cup diced red onions
  • 1/2 cup spinach (at least)
  • 1 medium sliced or diced tomato (or however many you want)
  • 1/3 cup sliced black olives
  • 1/4 cup of milk
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons of butter or oil

*I started with 4 eggs and added a 5th due to all the veggies I added. Just seemed right.


Preheat the oven to 350 – 375°F (190°C)

Grease a 9-inch pie dish with cooking oil or butter.

The Potato Crust:

Heat a skillet over medium heat and add the shredded potatoes. Cook them for about 5-7 minutes until they are golden brown but not too crispy because of the next step…

Remove the skillet from heat and press the potatoes into the prepared pie dish, creating an even layer at the bottom and sides.

Bake the crust for around 15 minutes until it turns slightly golden brown.

A thought: I didn’t have a metal pie pan, but if I did, I would have tried to cook the potatoes in the pan under a low broil until golden brown. (I will be getting a metal pie pan! I will update this recipe once I try it.)

The Egg Mixture

In a bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, and salt and pepper to taste.

Now, traditionally you would do this…

In a separate skillet, you would cook the diced onions and bell peppers until they are slightly softened, then add the baby spinach and cook for a few more minutes.

Layer the cooked veggies onto the baked crust and sprinkle shredded cheese onto the veggies.

Pour the egg mixture over the veggies and cheese.

But wait! My version of this Shredded Potato Crusted Quiche is different.

I mixed all the veggies and some of the shredded cheese in with the egg mixture! (Saving time, energy, and clean up!)

Then I “scooped / poured” the mixture into the baking dish, being careful not to disturb the potato crust.

Bake for around 30-35 minutes until the quiche is golden brown and the eggs are set. (Timing can vary.)

Once you take it out of the oven, let it rest for a few minutes before slicing.

TIPS: This recipe is great for meal prep, as you can make it ahead of time.

You can also choose different veggies to add to the filling.

Some great options include mushrooms, zucchini, kale, or asparagus.

This potato crusted quiche recipe with veggies is an easy, delicious and unique breakfast (lunch or dinner) option.

The crispy potato crust is a great twist on traditional quiche crusts, and the added vegetables make this dish nutritious and colorful.

Once you have tried this recipe, you can experiment with different fillings and toppings to make something truly unique each time.
