^Oh, hey there whole30 quiche with hash brown crust. Are you a parking ticket? ‘Cause you’ve got fiiiiiine written all over you.

What’s up you tasty make-ahead quiche? Is your name Google because you’re what I’ve been searching for!

Big announcement friends: I’m leaving blogging to write food-related pickup lines for a living. It’s been fun getting to know you!

I kid, I kid. But hey, how about this quiche? I mean, hold me. Let’s count down its bona fides: gluten-free, dairy-free, vegetarian adaptable, and Whole30 AF! But if you think all those things mean it’s boring and tasteless, then you didn’t hear my nine-year-old picky eater call it delicious.

What Kind of Potatoes Should I Use?

For convenience sake, using shredded hash browns makes assembling this healthy quiche a quick process. It can be really hard to find Whole30 compliant frozen hash browns but Cascadian Farms are a great choice if they are carried at your local store.

Want to make your own hash browns? Using Russet potatoes are fabulous for this dish and are easily found at any grocery store. Potatoes are on the Dirty Dozen list, so if your budget allows, buying organic is a solid choice.

Where Do You Get Whole30 Compliant Bacon?

Butcher Box sources only organic and free-range meat for their customers and ships them to your home once a month.

The meat is super high-quality and we’ve always had an amazing selection sent each month. In addition to what they pick for you, you’re able to add specific cuts and types of meat to your box. And yes, they have Whole30 compliant bacon!

I have put together the Ultimate Guide to Whole30 Bacon Brands if you need additional brand ideas.

Here’s How to Make Whole30 Quiche:

*Detailed & printable recipe card at the bottom of the post

Mix potatoes with olive oil, ghee and garlic salt. Press into your baking dish. Pro tip: if you want to use a pie plate, spray it liberally with cooking spray or brush with ghee. If using a cast iron skillet, preheat it in the oven for a few minutes and then brush with ghee. Bake hash brown crust at 425 degrees for 30 minutes.

Add your veggies and (cooked) meat if using.

Mix your eggs, dill, and milk (Nutpods in this case) and carefully pour into the hash brown crust. Some egg will likely leak through the crust and into the baking dish. That’s fine. I mean, who are you, Martha-freaking Stewart? This thing is going to be amazing and delicious…who gives two craps about a little leaked egg? Not this girl.

Lightly cover with foil and bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. Remove the foil and bake until the egg is set in the middle (about 20 minutes).

Pro Tips/Recipe Notes

  • Nutpods are a creamy non-dairy milk that is Whole30 compliant. If you’re unable to find it, sub in your favorite non-dairy milk.
  • If you consume dairy, feel free to sub in half-and-half or whole milk for the Nutpods.
  • To make this recipe 100% dairy-free, use all olive oil in the crust instead of the ghee.
  • If you consume dairy and want to add cheese, I would add two slices of swiss on top of the baked crust, pour in the egg mixture, and then add 1/2 cup of shredded cheddar once you take the foil off while baking.
  • Not dairy free? Sub in melted butter for the ghee.
  • You can serve this quiche with hash brown crust either cold or hot. It reheats really well so if you want this to be a make-ahead dish, bake it in a pie plate (keep cast iron out of the fridge). Reheat at 350 degrees for 25 minutes.

Variations

  • You’re welcome to add whatever vegetables you’d like. If the veggies have a high water content (zucchini, etc.) I would saute them ahead of time to keep the quiche from getting soupy.
  • Cook down sliced onions in ghee for a caramelized onion quiche.

Ingredients
  • 3 cups potatoes shredded
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp ghee
  • 1/4 tsp garlic salt
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup Nutpods or non-dairy milk
  • 1/4 tsp dill
  • 1 cup broccoli chopped

  • 1 cup ham or other cooked meat of choice
Instructions
  1. Frozen hash browns: Thaw frozen hash browns. Place on a clean kitchen towel and cover with another towel. Press to remove excess moisture.

    Fresh potatoes: Peel and grate your potatoes with a box grater or a food processor with a shredder disk attachment. Place in a strainer and rinse with cold water until the water runs clear. Squeeze to remove excess water. Place on a clean kitchen towel and cover with another towel. Press to remove excess moisture (I use a cast iron skillet to press the extra moisture out).

  2. Mix potatoes with ghee, olive oil and garlic salt. Press into your baking dish. Pro tip: if you want to use a pie plate, spray it liberally with cooking spray or brush with ghee. If using a cast iron skillet, preheat it in the oven for a few minutes and then brush with ghee. Bake hash brown crust at 425 degrees for 30 minutes.

  3. Add your veggies and (cooked) meat if using.

  1. Tried this out tonight and it was great. Our version had mushroom, ham, onion and cheese as that is what I had on hand in the fridge. We have enough left over for supper tomorrow night as well so that is a huge bonus. Thanks!

  2. This sounds amazing! I’ll be making this very soon!

  3. Ghee is lactose free, but not dairy free.

    • Hi Jessica, you can use all olive oil in the crust if you need it 100% dairy-free. Thanks for pointing that out as I have updated the post to make that point more clear.

  4. Great idea! Love that crust.

  5. This looks delicious!! 😋

  6. This looks super good (and might I saw, tomato herb styling is on point 👌). I love the idea of the hashbrown crust for a gluten-free option, and how tasty and versatile the recipe is. I’d make a vegetarian version, of course, but love the inspiration!
