Easy crustless potato quiche


This is one of my favorites for a quick lunch.

3 large potatoes, peeled and roughly grated, or else pre-cooked and mashed.
1 large carrot, grated or finely chopped
About 1/2 cup fresh or frozen peas
2-3 onions, sliced and fried
3 eggs, beaten and salted and spiced to taste

If I ever want to make this dish dairy, I think some grated cheese wouldn't go amiss either.

Mix all ingredients in a baking pan and press slightly with the back of a spoon.

Bake at medium heat for about one hour, or until the top of the quiche is nicely browned.

What a yummy looking dish! I can not eat dairy or wheat, so this looks like something that I will be trying out. Thank you!

Thank you! Wow, this looks great and truly does sound "easy." I'm a relatively new cook, and sometimes recipes that say "easy" are not easy for me. My friend has a wheat allergy, so I'll share this with her too. Thank you.

That looks absolutely delicious! I wish I was living in a place with a kitchen so I could try it out!

We made this tonight! Our middle has food poisioning (from a resturant) and so we haven't been grocery shopping AND therefore I had no idea what I could make and voila!

We had it with turkey sausages on the side

Yummy!

Anna, I just ran upon the recipe for the potato quiche. It looks delicious, and since I don't eat very much meat and love veggie dishes, I want to try it. I am not a cook, though, and I have a question. Do you grate the potatoes using the big holes of a cheese grater? Or, if you cook and mash them, do you make them fairly lumpy? Or smooth? I know these questions sound stupid, but if you would email me with an answer or post it here, I would be so "grateful." (Pun intended!)

Thanks

Hey, I just made this and it was super tasty! I added some cheddar, and used broccoli instead of peas, because that is what I had on hand, and seasoned with cayenne and chives. Husband loved it, definitely a keeper, thanks!
