  • 1/2 box – Green Giant Corn Nibblets
  • 1 cup – Ore Ida Shredded Hashbrown Potatoes
  • 1 bag – Ore Ida Simply Olive Oil and Sea Sal French Fries

  • Cook the Ore Ida Shredded Hash Brown Potatoes as directed on bag. Set aside.
  • Steam the Green Giant Vegetables as directed on boxes. Set aside.
  • In a bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, salt & pepper. Set Aside. (Yes, I am a fan of mise en place food prep.)
  • Spread veggies out in bottom of pie crust, cover with shredded cheese, then shredded potatoes, and finally, pour the egg mixture on top.
  • Prepare a cookie sheet of Ore Ida Olive Oil and Sea Salt French Fries as directed on bag and slide into the oven on the high rack.
  • Slide quiche onto the bottom rack.
  • Set oven timer for 20 minutes.
  • After 20 minutes, your fries are done — well-done, which is how fries should be enjoyed ­čśë
  • Now move the quiche to the top rack and set timer for additional 10 minutes.
  • After that, let cool for a few minutes, slice and enjoy with a side of fries and tournament basketball!

I make quiches often, but this is the best one I’ve ever put together…and it’s not even close.

The beauty of the Tip-Off Quiche is 1) you can make it ahead of time, maybe even during the Tuesday night ‘play-in’ opening round games and 2) you can add anything else you’d like to it. For example, I had some leftover steamed fresh cauliflower from the night before, so I chopped it up and mixed it with the frozen Green Giant Steamers veggies.

And yeah, I know, I served up too much ketchup and wasted it. I always do. I have a problem.
