  • 3-4 Idaho potatoes
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper divded
  • 1 tbsp Parmesan cheese grated

  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter

  • 1 cup Gruyère cheese shredded
  • 5 eggs
  • 2 cups half and half
  • 1 tbsp fresh thyme minced

Instructions 

Potato Crust

  • Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). Spray quiche dish with cooking spray.
  • Peel the potatoes, then thinly slice a knife or mandoline.
  • Add the sliced potatoes to a large bowl and drizzle with the olive oil, 1 teaspoon of salt, ¼ teaspoon of pepper, and the Parmesan and toss with your hands or a spoon to coat.
  • Arrange the potato slices in a pie dish, starting from the middle and working your way out, overlapping the potato slices. Fill in any gaps with leftover potato slices.
  • Bake the crust for 15 minutes, or until the potatoes are just cooked and not yet brown.

Quiche

  • Reduce the oven temperature to 350˚F (180˚C).
  • In a large frypan over medium heat, melt the butter. Add the onion and chard and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 5 minutes.
  • Sprinkle 1/2 cup of the cheese evenly over the potato crust. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs until blended. Whisk in the half-and-half and thyme, and season with salt and pepper. Stir in the onion, chard and the remaining 1/2 cup (2 oz./60 g) cheese. Pour the egg mixture into the potato crust.
  • Bake until the filling is set and slightly puffed and the crust is golden brown, 35-40 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool briefly.
