If you enjoy quiche but are counting calories or watching your fat intake, using a traditional crust is most likely thwarting your best efforts at living a healthier lifestyle. For a tasty change of pace, try this crust, which uses yellow potatoes and onions.
POTATO AND ONION QUICHE CRUST
Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 4 yellow potatoes, grated
  • ¼-½ cup finely chopped onion, to taste
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

Directions
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Use 1 teaspoon of the olive oil to grease a glass pie plate and set aside. Place potatoes, onions, cornstarch and salt and pepper in a large bowl and stir until well combined. Heat the remaining tablespoon of olive oil in a large skillet. Add the potato mixture and flatten it out. Cook until the bottom is golden. Gently loosen the potatoes then invert into the pie plate. Mold the potato mixture into a crust then bake for approximately 20 minutes. Fill with your favorite quiche toppings then bake for an additional 20-25 minutes, until your quiche is set.
