 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    4      cups          Home Style hash brown potatoes -- (Shredded-Ore-Ida)
      1/3  cup           butter -- melted
    1      cup           ham -- diced
    3      large         eggs
      3/4  cup           half and half
    1      cup           cheddar cheese
                         salt & pepper to taste
 Thaw the hash browns and squeeze out any moisture. (I nuke them on defrost and
 then squish them in paper towels)
 Press into a quiche pan or a 9 pie plate up sides as well to make a *crust*.
 Drizzle edges to center with melted butter. Bake shell in a 425 preheated oven
 for 25 minutes. In the mean time combine ham and cheese or fillings of your
 choice. Blend the half and half , salt and pepper and eggs till well
 incorporated. Remove shell from oven. Add ham mixture, then egg mixture. Bake
 an additional 25-30 minutes reducing the oven temperature to 350 after
 replacing in oven.

 NOTES : This is very good with mushroom, onion ,and crumbled bacon or ham and
 swiss or anything yummy you like in quiche. The crust will not look fully
 browned, but that’s okay because it will cook more after the filling addition.
