The Deen Bros. Lighter Hash Brown Quiche

  • Prep time: 15 min
  • Cook time: 45 min
  • Servings: 6


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 onion
  • 1 8-ounce package cremini mushrooms
  • 1 cup refrigerated shredded hash browns such as Simply Potatoes
  • 1/2 cup cooked diced ham
  • 1 cup reduced-fat 1% milk
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup half-and-half
  • 3 scallions
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Pinch ground nutmeg
  • 2/3 cup shredded reduced-fat Cheddar cheese


Preheat the oven to 375°F. Spray a 9-inch round quiche dish or pie plate with cooking spray.

Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion and mushrooms and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, 6 – 8 minutes. Add the potatoes and ham and cook, stirring occasionally, until the potatoes are tender, about 10 minutes. Spread the mixture into the prepared dish.

Whisk together the milk, eggs, half-and-half, scallions, salt, and nutmeg in a large bowl until blended. Stir in the cheese. Pour evenly over the potato mixture. Bake until the top is golden and a knife inserted into the center comes out clean, about 25 minutes.
