Ingredients
  • for the filling…
  • ½ cup chopped bacon, uncooked
  • 1 cup sliced zucchini, approx. ⅛ inch thick
  • ½ cup diced red bell pepper
  • ¼ cup chopped sun dried tomatoes, dried only, not marinated
  • ½ cup chopped fresh basil
  • ½ cup chopped green onions, green parts only
  • ¼ tsp dried thyme
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp black pepper
  • for the egg mixture...
  • 8 eggs
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ⅛ tsp black pepper
  • 7-8 thin slices tomato
  • for the potato crust…
  • 2 large Russet potatoes, peeled
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp black pepper
Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees
  2. To make the potato crust...
  3. Evenly slice the potatoes into approx. ⅛ inch slices (with a mandolin or sharp knife). In a large bowl, toss the potatoes with the olive oil, salt, and pepper. Lightly grease a 9-inch cake pan. Lay the potato slices across the bottom and along the sides, layering them to fill all gaps. Bake the potatoes on the center rack of the oven, uncovered, for 15 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, prepare the filling...
  5. Add the chopped bacon to a large pan over medium heat. Cook for approx. 5 minutes, stirring often to prevent burning. Once lightly browned, discard most of the bacon fat, reserving about 1 tbsp in the pan to continue cooking with. Add the zucchini and bell pepper. Sauté for 3-4 minutes.
  6. To assemble the quiche...
  7. Whisk the eggs, thyme, salt, and pepper together. Add the veggie-bacon filling to the eggs. By now, the potatoes should be done. Pour the egg filling into the potato crust, spreading it out evenly across the pan. Top the egg with tomato slices. Bake on the middle rack, uncovered, for 30 minutes (to test, slide a knife through the center- if it comes out clean, it’s done).
  8. To serve...
  9. Let the quiche cool for 10 minutes to set. Slice pieces, plate, and devour. Top with chives, optional.
