Crustless Denver-Potato Quiche

Egg bakes like this one need time to set up after baking, so don't skip the standing time after they come out of the oven. Use this time to gather any toppings and set the table.

  • 3 tablespoon olive oil

  • 8 ounce tiny new red-skinned or golden potatoes, cut into 1/2-inch pieces

  • ¾ cup diced cooked ham

  • ¾ cup chopped green bell pepper

  • ½ cup sliced green onions

  • 6 eggs, lightly beaten

  • 1 ½ cup milk

  • 2 tablespoon chopped fresh Italian parsley

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ½ teaspoon black pepper

  • 1 ½ cup shredded cheddar cheese (6 oz.)

  • Nonstick cooking spray

  • ½ cup panko bread crumbs*


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. In a 4- to 6-qt. Dutch oven heat 2 Tbsp. of the oil over medium heat. Cook potatoes in hot oil over medium heat for 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned and almost tender, stirring occasionally. Stir in ham and bell pepper; cook 4 minutes more. Remove from heat. Stir in green onions.

  2. In a large bowl combine eggs, milk, parsley, salt, and black pepper. Stir in cooked potato mixture, and 1 cup of the cheese.

  3. Wipe out Dutch oven with paper towels (or wash and dry, if necessary); coat with nonstick cooking spray. Pour egg mixture into the Dutch oven. Sprinkle with the remaining 1/2 cup cheese and the panko. Drizzle with the remaining 1 Tbsp. olive oil. Bake, uncovered, 30 to 35 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool 15 to 30 minutes before serving.


If desired, toast panko in the Dutch oven or a small skillet over medium heat until golden brown. Remove and set aside. Continue with recipe as directed, except top with panko just before serving.
