Everything you need for a Hash Brown Crusted Breakfast Quiche from Food Lion

I recently made a delicious one pan breakfast quiche and wanted to put it on the portal. Now, I make a lot of quiches but this one is a little different. Instead of a pie crust I used has browns as the crust. I put them in the oven long enough for them to brown and then pulled it out of the oven.

Then I got set to work on making the filling. I browned some sweet sausage and mixed it up along with some peppers, onions, eggs, and cheese. I poured it all into the hash brown crust and put it in the oven to cook. It got brown in about 30 minutes and after it had set for 5 minutes it was ready to eat!

This is a delicious breakfast. It’s everything you want for breakfast, eggs, sausage, and potatoes, all in one tasty bite. I’m glad I added some salt and pepper to the hash browns as it really added some flavor to the dish. My husband and I enjoyed it so much that we each had two pieces.
