1 quiche



  • 3 1/4 cups shredded Yukon Gold potatoes (about 3 large), squeezed and drained

  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten

  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • teaspoon pepper


  • 5 slices bacon, cooked and chopped

  • 1 ½ cups chopped fresh spinach

  • ¾ cup shredded Cheddar cheese

  • 5 large eggs

  • 1 tablespoon sour cream

  • 1 cup low-fat milk

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • teaspoon pepper


  1. To prepare crust: Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Coat a 9-inch deep-dish pie pan with cooking spray. Stir potatoes, 1 egg, Parmesan, oil, salt and pepper together in a medium bowl. Transfer the potato mixture to the prepared pan and press it evenly into the bottom and up the sides of the pan. Bake until the crust is set and beginning to brown around the edges, about 25 minutes.

  2. To prepare filling and bake quiche: Evenly scatter bacon, spinach and Cheddar over the crust. Whisk eggs and sour cream in a small bowl until smooth. Whisk in milk, salt and pepper. Pour the egg mixture over the other filling ingredients. Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees F. Bake the quiche until the filling is set in the center and beginning to brown slightly, 35 to 45 minutes. Let cool slightly before serving.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
