Thursday: Hashbrown Quiche

We loved this one. It came from a cookbook my mother-in-law gave me this Christmas. It is called, Taste of Home HOLIDAY get-togethers: 549 Festive Recipes to share with Friends and Family.
I would recommend this cookbook. Okay, here's the recipe:
3 cups frozen loose-pack shredded hash browns, thawed
1/3 cup butter, melted
1 cup diced fully cooked ham
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
1/4 cup diced green pepper
2 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper

1. Press hash browns between paper towel to remove excess moisture.
2. Press into the bottom and up the sides of an ungreased 9-inch pie plate. Drizzle with butter. Bake at 425 degrees for 25 minutes.3. Combine the ham, cheese, and green pepper; spoon over the crust. (nice little head shot of my son here...he thinks he has to help me cook everything. At 2 and a half, I have not trusted him to measure yet, but stirring is more his thing.)4. In a small bowl, beat eggs, milk, salt and pepper.
5. Pour over all. 6. Reduce heat to 350 degrees; bake for 25-35 minutes or until knife insert near the center comes out clean. (hint: If the eggs jiggles when you go to move the dish, it is not done.) Allow to stand for 10 minutes before cutting.

Yield: 6 servings, but for my family it was more like 4 servings. :)
