Food Recipe: "Pinoy Quiche" (Hash Potato Longganisa Spinach Quiche)

Quiche (pronounced as keesh) is a French dish. Merriam-Webster defines quiche as “a pie made with eggs, milk, cheese, and vegetables or meat.”  It is an open-faced pie.  The word “quiche” comes from the Lorraine Franconian word "küeche" meaning “cake.” Lorraine Franconian is a French dialect. Nevertheless, just because quiche is French, it does not mean it cannot be infused with Filipino flavor. Below is my brother’s original quiche recipe, which is a fusion of French and Filipino.  Enjoy.  (Recipe by Randal San Miguel)

FOR THE CRUST (Hash brown):
3 medium-size potato.

Peel the potatoes and shred, the same way you make hash brown. Then place the shredded potatoes in iced water for at least 5 minutes to remove the starch. Afterwards, squeeze the liquid out from the potatoes and place them on a dry paper towel to drain the remaining water.

Coming soon. Watch out for our
new breakfast taco.
(a) Longganisa mixture

Oil (for sautéing)
2 to 3 whole longganisa (diced)
Equal parts of diced eggplant, tomatoes, onions and spinach (about 50 grams each)
(If the spinach is fresh, boil first for 2 minutes and cut into shreds. If the spinach is canned, just sauté it with the onions and tomatoes)

(b) Egg, cream and cheese mixture
3 whole eggs
2 egg yolks
1 cup of all purpose cream
1 teaspoon of thyme
1/2 cup of your choice of cheese (grated or shredded)
You may use gruyere, emmental, cheddar, swiss, parmigiano, goat cheese or anything except mozzarella.

  • Whisk the eggs with the cream and cheese and thyme. Set aside.
  • Sauté the onions, tomatoes, eggplant and spinach on a frying pan or skillet, and add the diced longganisa. Add salt and pepper to taste. Remove from the pan and mix this with the egg, cream and cheese mixture.
  • Preheat the oven at 425 F or 220 C.
  • On a 9-inch pie plate, place the shredded potato and form a piecrust. Bake the piecrust until it turns almost golden brown or it is cooked throughout. 
  • Then place the longganisa mixture inside the pie.
  • Reduce the heat to 15O C or 3OO F and bake for 5 minutes.

That’s it! Bon appétit or I should say, “kainan na!”
Reminders: Make sure there is no gap in your potato crust otherwise, the mixture will spill but if you are using a pie dish that has a vertical border, this will not be a problem.
