AuthorKathleen GloverCategory, DifficultyIntermediate

A gluten free alternative to a traditional quiche, Parsley and Scallion Potato Crust Quiche is an herb-heavy savory breakfast pie. Try it with any number of fillings and find a combination that suits you. I've done cooked spinach, mushrooms, goat cheese, sausage, or bacon bits. The possibilities are endless!
