Meat & Potato Quiche

Sharrie, my mother-in-law, has some great breakfast recipes that I just had to steal. This is one of those hearty "down on the farm" breakfast dishes. Since marrying Scott, I have had to learn that breakfast is an essential meal. We still have cereal (too often), but this is one of those "make and and eat for 5 days" meals...which I love. Plus it's pretty easy, minus the potato grating.

Meat & Potato Quiche
Serves 6-9 
1/4 cup vegetable oil
6 cup shredded potatoes (4-5 small)
2 cup grated cheese
1 1/2 cup diced ham {or cooked sausage}
1/2 cup chopped onion
2 cups milk total-you will use one can evaporated milk and about 1/3 cup regular milk
4 large eggs {I used 5 medium}
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
2 Tablespoons parsley flakes

Preheat oven to 425. Spread oil in pan, then press in potatoes. Bake for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, beat together: milk, eggs, salt and pepper. Remove potatoes from oven; layer cheese, meat, and onion. Pour milk mixture over all. Sprinkle with parsley. Return to oven and bake 25-35 minutes, til set and knife inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 5 minutes before cutting.
