Idaho Potato Pie by Lynn Cahoon

I love quiche, but it’s hard to ignore the call of hash browns for a good Sunday brunch.  One day, I decided to mix the two desires into one dish that not only is great for breakfast, but also stores and reheats well for lunch. Especially if you add a green salad to the lunch bag.

Idaho Potato Pie

Pie Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees.

Line a pie plate with a pre-made pie crust. (You can make your own here but on most Sunday mornings, I’m looking for ease and speed.)

Inside the pie crust, layer the following
2 cups of frozen shredded hash browns
1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese
½ cup of one of the following pre-cooked meats o Ham o Bacon o Sausage

In a bowl mix the following
6 eggs
¼ cup of whole milk

I like to add parsley or another herb here to brighten the flavors.

Pour over the mixture in the pie crust.

Bake for 30 minutes until the middle of the pie is set. Let cool 5-10 minutes and serve with a garden salad or put on the brunch table.

Angie Turner’s restaurant, The County Seat, is conveniently located near a first-class farmers market—so her menu is full of fresh ingredients. But a visiting culinary professor has just had a taste of something very unhealthy. . .

Angie first meets Daniel Monet at a local mission, where she and her chef-in-training, Hope, are serving barbeque chicken poutine to the homeless. Monet is one of Hope’s teachers—but Angie’s boyfriend knows him from his youthful days in England. But soon, the bon vivant is no longer vivant. When Monet is found dead, with Hope’s prints on the wine glass next to him, it will be Angie who has to sauce out the real killer . . .
