Quiche with Hashbrown Crust

IMG_0645Once of my favourite things to make for any meal at any time is quiche. It is simple, quick and I can throw anything into it: vegetables, cheese, meat etc. Almost everytime I make this dish I make it a little differenly. This variation is one of my favourites. This is a great week night meal and its leftovers are delicious. During one of my experiments I decided to use leftover hashbrowns to make a crust and it worked out amazingly well!
