  1. Preheat the Oven:
    • Begin by preheating your oven to 375°F (190°C). Grease a 9-inch quiche or pie dish with a bit of olive oil.
  2. Prepare the Potato Layer:
    • Thinly slice the potatoes and layer them at the bottom and sides of the greased dish, overlapping slightly to form a “crust.” Brush the potatoes with a little olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes, or until just starting to soften.
  3. Cook the Filling:
    • While the potato layer is baking, heat a splash of olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Sauté the onion, garlic, and bell pepper until softened. Add the chopped spinach and cook until wilted. Remove from heat and let it cool slightly.
  4. Assemble the Quiche:
    • In a large bowl, mix the sautéed vegetables with the chopped ham, shredded Emmental cheese, breadcrumbs, and Parmesan cheese. Season with salt and pepper. Beat the egg and fold it into the mixture to bind the ingredients together.
  5. Fill and Bake:
    • Spoon the filling over the pre-baked potato layer, spreading it evenly. Return to the oven and bake for an additional 25-30 minutes, or until the egg is set and the top is golden brown.
  6. Serve:
    • Let the quiche cool for a few minutes before slicing. Serve warm or at room temperature.

This Rustic Potato and Spinach Quiche is a hearty and satisfying dish, perfect for brunch, lunch, or a light dinner. The potato crust offers a delightful twist on the traditional pastry crust, making it gluten-free and adding a lovely texture and flavor. Enjoy this homemade quiche with a fresh salad for a complete meal.
