Potato Crust Quiche

Potato Crust QuicheI really liked this twist on traditional quiche, which is typically high in fat and calories. I loved the potato crust, but next time I make this dish I will pre-bake the potato crust to give it more of a crusty texture. I didn’t have asparagus, so I substituted spinach and sliced mushroom. A small pinch of nutmeg added warmth, and I couldn’t resist some fresh thyme. If you like quiche, you’ll love this.
