Hash-brown Quiche

I know I have said this before, but yesterday morning was a perfect example.  Sunday's are perfect for a good breakfast.  Yesterday was Mother's Day and while I would love to wish a Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there, and my moms are no exception, I really want to wish a Happy Mother's Day to the most perfect mom I know.  My lovely wife.  I love you babe, and Happy Mothers Day!

This recipe is perfect for a Sunday morning breakfast, or an elegent appetizer.  It is pretty simple, pretty tasty and just plain pretty.  Enjoy!

Makes  9-12 quiches

1 Bag of frozen hash-browns
4 tblsps butter
5 eggs beaten
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup chopped green onion
1 cup cooked ham, or bacon chopped
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 pepper
2 cups cheddar cheese

Preheat your oven to 400, and butter all the rounds in a muffin tin very well or they will stick .  In the bottom of the tin, and around the side pack in some of the frozen hash-browns. You will want to fill up the bottom about 1/4 of the way, and build up the edges as well.  Put in the oven for about 10 min  or until the hash-browns become golden in color.

In a bowl, beat together the eggs milk, salt and pepper.  Add the chopped ham and onion.  Pour  the egg mixture into the cups over the hash-brown until about 3/4 of the way filled.  Top off the cups with the cheese, and put back into the oven reducing the heat to about 350 and cook for 15 minutes or so.  Check the eggs and once firm you can remove from the oven.  Remove from the tin and serve with your favorite breakfast condiment.  More importantly share with your favorite breakfast partner and eat up!
