Classic Potato Crusted Quiche


  • 3 medium sized Idaho® Potatoes, baked and divided
  • 4 large eggs
  • ⅓ cup liquid egg whites
  • 1 cup unsweetened cashew milk
  • ½ cup half and half
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon pepper

  2. Slice 10 ounces of the baked potato (this was one large). Set aside.

  5. Spray the top of the sliced potatoes with avocado oil spray and season with salt and pepper.
  6. Top the potatoes with the broccoli and ham and pour over the egg mixture.

Chef's notes:

  • Save yourself time by baking your potatoes ahead of time.  I routinely bake potatoes to use later in the week.  Did you know that if you cook and cool potatoes, even if reheated, it has nearly a 40 percent lower glycemic impact?!  Amazing!
  • How you make your potatoes is up to you.  Bake in a microwave on the baked potato setting.  Simply press the baked potato button however many potatoes you are baking.  If you don’t have a baked potato button, bake 5 minutes for one potato, 8 minutes for two and 11 for three or more. Air fry at 400°F for 20-30 minutes, depending on how big your potatoes are, or simply bake in an oven at 400°F for 45-60 minutes.
