Introduction: Potato-Skin Mini-Quiches

About: Entrepreneur, Home Baker, Historian & Geek...

For years one of my staple party foods has been Potato skins... what could be better then potatoes, bacon and cheese all in once delicious bite? WELL.... one day I was preparing for a spring brunch I had just finished making 2 quiches and was starting on the potato skins when I saw the left over quiche mixture that would not fit in my pastry. As I hate to throw any food away I thought what could I do with that? BINGO! use the potato skins as the vessel for the quiche! They are a marriage made in heaven bot start with a base of bacon and cheese so why not join them!

So here is my Finger Fusion: Potato-Skin Mini-Quiches!

Step 1: Ingredients

2 pounds small / medium potatoes
4 slices bacon
1 cup assorted grated cheese
2 large eggs
1 cup cream

salt / pepper / cayenne pepper to taste

Step 2: Potatoes

  1. Wash and cut the ends off of the potatoes
  2. If potatoes are too big cut in half (each piece should be about an 1.5 inches)
  3. Place on baking sheet and roast for 45min at 350 degrees
  4. Remove from oven and let cool
  5. When cool enough to handle scoop out center (save for mashed potatoes or just eat it as you continue to cook!)
  6. Make sure the bottom is thick enough (as you will be filling the shells with liquid)

Step 3: Filling

  1. Fry Bacon until very crispy
  2. Shred cheese (I use Parmesan, Cheddar and Smoked Gruyere)
  3. Lightly beat eggs and cream together with salt and pepper
  4. Chop bacon into small pieces

Step 4: Cook It

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees
  2. Place potatoes on baking tray
  3. Place bacon in the bottom of the potato shells
  4. Cover bacon with cheese
  5. Spoon egg mixture into potato shells (as full as you dare)
  6. Place in oven for 10 minutes
  7. Turn down heat to 300 degrees and cook for an additional 30 minutes
  8. Let stand for at least 10 minutes before serving

Step 5: Serve

  1. Can be served warm or cold
  2. Potato Quiches can be served whole or sliced in half to let your guest see the surprise inside!
  3. Remember to have napkins for your guests to wipe their fingers!
