Ingredients

  • 16ounces precooked shredded potatoes or frozen hash browns (thawed)
  • 1 3/4cups liquid egg substitute, or 8 eggs, beaten, divided
  • 2tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1tablespoon canola oil or extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4teaspoon salt
  • 2cups finely chopped broccoli florets
  • 1cup shredded extra-sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 3/4cup finely diced smoked ham
  • 3/4cup reduced-fat sour cream
  • 1/4cup minced fresh chives
  • 1/8teaspoon freshly ground pepper

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Generously coat a 9-inch springform pan with cooking spray. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil.
  2. If using hash browns, squeeze any excess moisture from the thawed potatoes. Toss shredded potatoes (or hash browns) with 1/4 cup egg substitute, flour, oil and salt in a medium bowl. Pat the mixture into the bottom and 2 inches up the sides of the prepared springform pan. Bake until the potatoes are beginning to brown at the edges, 35 to 40 minutes.
  3. Fill the crust with broccoli, cheese and ham. Whisk the remaining 1 1/2 cups egg substitute (or beaten eggs), sour cream, chives and pepper in a medium bowl. Place the pan on the prepared baking sheet and pour the egg mixture over the filling.
  4. Bake the quiche until the center is just set, 50 minutes to 1 hour. Let cool for 15 minutes. Run a knife around the edges to loosen the sides, remove the pan sides and cut the quiche into wedges.

Tips

Prepare crust; cool, wrap and refrigerate for up to 1 day. Let stand at room temperature while you continue with Step 3 and preheat oven.
