Saturday Stirrings - Meat & Potato Quiche

It's been fun sifting through old recipes stored in a large tin. I've saved not only recipes but interesting and helpful information like the 1951 publication "Colonic Irrigations: Painless, Pleasant, Healthful". I'm sure you'll be horrified to learn that Constipation is a Curse to Civilized Peoples or that Slow Elimination Means Slow Decay of Mind and Body. Yes indeedy, if you're suffering from a variety of ailments, including but not limited to biliousness, colds, asthma, nervousness, rheumatism, appendicitis, insomnia or high blood pressure, perhaps the only solution lies in an effective colonic irrigation! And remember, you heard it here first.

So how about we follow up that appetizing bit of information with a recipe? What, you're no longer hungry? How can that be? Maybe I can tempt you with this, though.

3 Tablespoons oil
3 cups shredded potatoes
1 cup swiss cheese
3/4 cup cooked, chopped meat - your choice
1/4 cup onion
1 cup light cream
2 eggs
salt & pepper

Mix oil and shredded potatoes and press into pie pan to form shell. Bake at 425 for 15 minutes.
Layer swiss cheese, meat and onion in shell.
Mix cream, eggs, salt & pepper and pour over other ingredients in shell.
Bake at 425 for 30 minutes until set.

And it's not true that real men don't eat quiche no matter what you've heard. So this recipe is perfectly acceptable to serve to husbands and sons.

Once again, I learned lots and was highly entertained, and with some effort on my part, nourished as well!

Yum! I've made this recipe a few times after getting it from one of my fellow missionaries. She calls it a "Man Quiche" or Meat and potato pie!

This recipe sounds great... I will have to try it once I can collect enough eggs from my hens... I have been getting one or two eggs a day... but today was a nice sunny warm day so maybe this weather will allow me to collect more eggs this week...thanks again for the recipe....

This sounds SOOOO yummy!! Even after that bit of appetizing news . . . ;-) What kind of meat do you like to use in it?

It IS man quiche! I have a similar recipe... it just doesn't have the potatoes and it's the only quiche my husband likes. I'll try this one.
