I really dislike pastry but love quiche and this is a tasty alternative to the traditional version. Also my mother was Irish and she said I was true to my heritage inventing a new way to use potatoes.


  • 5 medium Potatoes

  • butter or margarine

  • packet frozen spinach

  • 100 g diced ham or bacon

  • grated light cheese

  • 300 mls milk

  • 3 eggs


  • 1.

    Peel and chop potatoes, boil until soft, mash with butter/margarine making sure mash is stiff. Wipe quiche dish with butter/margarine. Spoon mash into prepared quiche dish and, using a fork, spread mashed potatoes over bottom and sides of dish to form a case for the quiche. Into case spread defrosted spinach (wring excess moisture out prior to spreading). Spread diced ham/bacon and cover all with a layer of shredded cheese. Mix milk and eggs together, whisking until combined, pour over cheese and bake in the oven on 180 degrees Celsius for 50 minutes or until golden brown.


Don't be stingy on the ingredients. Changing some of the potatoes for orange sweet potatoes is also tasty and slightly better for diabetics. Salmon and leek also works instead of spinach and ham. Heats up really well for lunch the next day. I usually make 4 at a time and my children's friends all turn up when they know I am making potato quiche. All my children cook it too. Can be served on its own or with salad
