Potato Crusted Bacon & Gruyere Quiche

Marsha Gardner


I am in the process of submitting menus for a ladies retreat that will be held in the late winter. As I go through my recipe files I am amazed at how many Quiches I have and makes me want to make them all right now. I was talking with my husband about this particular one and he asked me to make it to take on a picnic tomorrow. I didn't know we were going on one until he asked me to make this. How sweet.

How to Make Potato Crusted Bacon & Gruyere Quiche


  1. Cook potatoes in simmering salted water until tender. Let cool completely before shredding with a box grater. Mix with melted butter. Season with salt and pepper. Press into well greased 9" tart pan with removable bottom. Bake in preheated 400-degree oven for 25 minutes. Let cool.
  2. In a skillet, cook bacon until crispy. Remove and add onion to pan. Cook until onion is softened.

    Whisk together all filling ingredients.( Mix the cornstarch with a little cream until there are no lumps and then add to the other ingredients).
  3. Pour into cooled crust. Place on a baking sheet.

    Bake in preheated 350 F oven for 35 minutes or until set. Let cool for 10 -15 minutes before serving.
  4. This would be a great brunch dish or for people who are on a gluten- free diet.
