- 6 frozen hash browns, defrosted. (most are gluten free)
- 1 egg
- 30 g Butter melted
- 1 Cup of grated Cheese of your choice, cheddar or goats
- 1 leek roughly chopped, or onion if you don&amp;amp;#039;t have leeks
- 2 cloves garlic
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 75 g 5 rashers of shortcut Bacon - sliced, or shredded ham
- 250 g 1 tub of ricotta cheese, I use light
- 100 g cup of milk, I use skim
- 50 g cup of cream, optional I use light
- 6 eggs
- chives for decoration, optional
Preheat Oven to 180c
Line the bottom of a springform cake tin with baking paper and grease the tin and paper.
Let the hash browns completely defrost.
Squeeze out excess moisture and place into a bowl
Mix with 1 egg and the melted butter.
Spread the hash brown mixture all over the bottom of the tin and up the sides, use a spoon to help press and push up the sides.
I precook for 10 minutes at 180c
Place cubed cheese in your mixing bowl and chop. Speed 8 / 4 seconds. Scrape down and repeat if necessary. Remove and set aside.
Add the garlic and chop for about 6 secs / speed 6
Add the olive oil and chopped leek to the bowl and saute the leek and garlic on Varoma / 3 minutes / speed 3.
Meanwhile slice the bacon.
Add the bacon to the mixing bowl after the time is up and cook at Varoma / 3 minutes / speed 3.
When the three minutes is up add ricotta, milk, cream and cheese to the mixing bowl and give a quick stir (I just use my spatula but you could use a low speed.
Then add eggs. You want to add the eggs last so they are not added to the hot bowl as they would start cook.
Mix gently on reverse / speed 4
Pour the mixture into the prepared tin with the crust. Sprinkle with chives if you have them.
Cook at 180c for about 50-60 minutes. I check and rotate half way through. If my oven is too hot I will reduce it to 160c half way.
Let it sit for 10-15 minutes slicing and serving. Note I run a butter knife around the edge before opening the springform tin.
Accessories you need
Be creative and use seasonal produce. If leeks are not in season use something else or what is on sale. Add your favourite seasoning. Replace the bacon or ham with chicken. If you don't want the hash brown crust just omit it, the quiche will still cook well.
