This crustless Potato Quiche is easy to whip up and makes a great addition to a holiday brunch or even more perfect for Mother’s Day. Sauteed potatoes and onion combine with sweet corn and rosemary to make a hearty and delicious breakfast custard. A combination Gruyere cheese, half and half and eggs gives this quiche a beautiful creamy cheesy texture and rich elegant flavor.
Brunch is often, if not always, the most indulgent meal of any season. You lounge around the table for hours on end, you may or may not consume one or more alcoholic beverages despite it being the middle of the day, and you usually aren’t trying to be healthy about it. For all these reasons, we will always love brunch. Even though for us, it’s usually reserved for special occasions, I’m always looking for good solid brunch recipes. They’re fun to test out for when that day arrives that we all gather around for a mix-day meal.
It happened on Easter. We were invited over to Greg and Cauleen’s house for brunch where we were presented with a buffet table full of beautiful breakfast casseroles. Needless to say, I’ve been in a strata, quiche-y, cheesy kind of mood ever since. Let’s take a look at this potato quiche.
In the pantry were potatoes that needed to be used and in my freezer a lingering few bags of Colorado sweet corn I froze last September. A trip to the store for some Gruyere and we were in business. And with that line up of ingredients, it goes without saying this was sinfully tasty.
And of course, the texture divine. Creamy, cheesy, with a little crunch from the potatoes. The corn chimes in adding a hint of sugar and the whole dish is very brunch worthy.
Let’s take a look.
