Po-Quiche

I honestly have no idea what to call this recipe! I wanted to make something for a brunch and I saw a lot of recipes that were quiches. I thought to myself, “Well, yeah, quiche. Everybody has quiche for brunch.” I don’t like being one among numbers. I am a Sagittarius through and through and enjoy being in the spotlight. That’s why I played center field in softball and was a point guard in basketball. I had to do something different!

The name comes from my not so creative mind that combines a typical quiche with potatoes. Since in all honesty, that is what it is. Instead of using a pie shell, I used potatoes and created a casserole.
