So yummy! Even my kids who “don’t like quiche” gobbled it up.

We liked this recipe. I used a combo of other cheeses because I wasn’t realizing how expensive Gruyere cheese is. The store only had one smallish “ block” for $19!! Since wasn’t sure how things would turn out, I opted NOT to use Gruyere, but should I ever make this again, I would bite the bullet and get the Gruyere. All in all a filling recipe and using the hash browns as the crust is BRILLIANT!
Good quiche - going to switch the crust for a pat in pan next time

Came out great but be careful to use the recipe instructions in the notes section. The top intro isn’t consistent

Turned out great forgot the egg in the hash browns but it didn’t matter. Added mushrooms and a few other veggies we had in the fridge. Big brunch hit!!
I ended up using a little more than half a bag of hashbrowns and thought it was perfect. I think I may put some extra cheese on top the next time I make it, but it was delicious for my mother's day brunch!
Delicious! We added roasted poblano and served with avocado on the side we doubled the recipe for a brunch for 7

Super! Made it for out of town visitors the day before arriving and they loved it. It held up beautifully and tasted delicious. I used both the egg yolks and whites to make it more dense and filling. I also substituted the bacon and used a sage chicken sausage instead.

Needs a lot more flavor

Hash browns aren't "processed" frozen vegetables, today, are flash-froze which often preserves the nutrients more than "fresh" produce. Like any other ingredient, frozen hashbrowns can be organic or not. "Organic" in a recipe is only a suggestion. I wouldn't get hung up on that.
