Don’t know why I haven’t made this sooner???
Made some changes to the ingredients;
I used 2 spring onions (scallions)
Chopped up some sundried tomatoes
Crumbled about 100gr of feta cheese and used Smokey chipotle grated cheese
I decided on using 10 eggs as what I had were small and mixed in 1/4 cup milk and 1/4 cup cooking cream.

Not only does this taste amazing, I love the fact that it can be cooked in 2.5hrs. .. so if I’m ever time challenged it’s my go to meal. Leftovers great for next days lunch also.

So easy and amazing

Easy recipe with a delicious outcome.
Will be a regular in our house now.

A 6L is standard but it can be done in a smaller one too like a 3.5 or 5L … just allowing extra time of course if you do so since it will be a thicker quiche to cook through Liz 🙂

I add gems frozen but I imagine if hash browns are frozen then shaping them to fit bowl could be a challenge? But if they sit ok then leave frozen

This recipe sounds great! I’d most likely use hash browns, would I need to defrost them in order to line the sc dish to shape the base of the quiche?

Cooked this for dinner last night was absolutely delicious, hubby had it again for breakfast this morning said the best he’s ever had. Thankyou for an easy, so tasty recipe definitely on the menu rotation.😋

Absolutely delicious. Easy easy easy. I used double smoked hickory bacon and added a handful of diced mushrooms. Smells divine whilst cooking and is even better on toast the next day. 👍

Easy to make and delicious too the smell through the house was devine, took little time to prep & highly recommend if you are looking for a slow cooker dinner to cook on a high setting & shorter cooking time

Was really yummy I made for the children’s lunches today

I believe most use 6L for this one 🙂

What size slow cookers have been used? 😊


May 22, 2018

This is a huge hit in my house! I make it a few times a week & portion it out for my 3 boys to eat for brekky.
I struggle to get Master 12 to eat brekky, but if this is in the fridge he will happily scoff down breakfast!


May 22, 2018

What are the quantities please? I’d like to make a big batch to feed 8 people


May 15, 2018

Made this tonight for the first time, was quick and easy. Myself, partner and 14 month old all loved it. Will be making it again that’s for sure ❤️

This was so easy to make and turned out perfectly!! I used a dozen eggs as my slow cooker is really big and just increased the other ingredients. The whole family loved it – including 4 little boys!

OMG delicious!
Will Definately make again and add some extra things!

I made one so delicious and I added everything I could. Family loved it. Might try BBQ chicken next time. Hash browns would work too if you don’t have gems

Absolutely delicious -and so easy to put together.
I used 1/2 cup light cooking cream instead of milk, the result, a lovely smooth texture.
Would definitely make this again😊👍

Do you have to put the tea towel under the lid?


August 9, 2016

Do you think this will work with the packets of frozen roast veges instead if the potato gems?

Im cooking this right now. It has been on for over 2 and 1/2 hours and is still raw in the middle. It was ment for dinner but it looks like it will be for breakfast.

No they are fine as is 🙂


April 15, 2016

Should potato gems be defrosted first?

Roxanne Barnes

January 27, 2016

Beautiful quiche…. Lovely and fluffy. I didn’t have any potato gems this time but used hash browns instead. Was so yummy !!!! Will definitely cook again..

They are like little round hashbrowns if that helps?
In the frozen chip section of supermarkets
