Chicken or Veggie Quiche

This is a meal I came up with I love to make different things all the time This can be made Veggie Style or with Meat...

Pre heat Oven to 375

Approx 6 Med Potatoes Peeled and shredded ( cook in a pan in until soft and light golden color)  This is your Crust.  Once done place in a Pie Pan and work the tators up the sides.

If you are using Meat You would want to cook that at this time and place on top of the Tator Crust.

I used the following :
1/2 yellow Squash (crookneck)
1/2 Zucchini
1/2 Onion
1/2 green and red pepper julienned

Saute in pan until crisp / soft.  Place on top the Tator crust  add Cup/ cup 1/2 cheese ( any flavor you like)

6 eggs mix and pour over the veggies and tators

Cook for approx 35-40 Minutes until eggs are set.
