I made this for the first time last night and it was ok, but will make several changes next time. The potato crust did nothing for it so next time will omit. I found it to be flavorless overall. I used egg whites instead of substitute and will probably do a 1/2 to half ratio next time - 1/2 whites 1/2 whole egg - to get more flavor. I will probably also use a few tablespoons of bacon pieces instead of the ham, less sour cream, and add some garlic & herb salt substitute.
Broccoli, Ham & Cheese Quiche

This quiche recipe is full of broccoli, Cheddar cheese and smoky ham surrounded by a crispy hash brown crust. Look for precooked shredded potatoes in the dairy section or in the produce section—or use frozen hash brown potatoes in this easy quiche recipe.
9 Reviews for Broccoli, Ham & Cheese Quiche
Unfortunately, this was a bust in our house. I followed the recipe exactly. I thought it was ok (not great, just ok) but my husband and 9 year old daughter took one bite each and opted not to eat the rest of their serving. My husband is fairly picky and I wasn't surprised when he didn't care for it. My daughter is much more adventurous and LOVES traditional quiche. She did say she might like it more if it had spinach in it instead of broccoli.
My family loves quiche. This is the first attempt at one w/ a potato crust. The crust seemed to be more chewy than crunchy once everything was baked up. The flavors of the filling are great though. Will try again, just tweak the crust a bit or omit altogether.
Made this tonight for my husband who loves quiche, and he said he like it better than the full fat version. However, the potato crust was flimsy and did not hold up well. I will try cooking it longer next time. Recipe needs a little salt, but not much.
