We love quiche!! Wait until you try this this tasty tater tot crusted spinach quiche though! I primarily make my easy spinach quiche recipe but a ham quiche would work perfectly with this tater tot pie crust too. (originally published 6/17, affiliate links present)

Doesn’t this breakfast quiche look amazing??

It is delicious! WAY more flavorful than just using a traditional pie crust and adds a nice crunch to the edges too.

Who doesn’t love these potato bites anyway??!! I’m 40 and they are definitely my weakness. The kids love them anyway I make them. They said I cannot make a quiche any other way anymore.  

  • Air fryer tater tots are probably our favorite side dish ever, this takes it another step to ultimate YUM though.

The idea of making a tater tot pie crust came to me when I couldn’t sleep at night and I guess my mind wandered off.

I started thinking of what I was craving at that moment and just had to figure out how long to cook them. The tater tots needed to come out soft but not too crunchy, so I could mash them and form them into my crust.

  • I like using a good ol’ glass pie pan because it doesn’t really stick even if you forget to use non stick spray on it (done that).

Quiche isn’t something we make just for brunch or breakfast. I make it for dinner probably once a month or so. Even my kids love it now!

I called it “cheese pie” for a long time. For a while they weren’t keen on spinach but after many dinnertimes of “you have to try at least once bite” they started to like it and now all 3 of them love it.

I will admit it’s 10x better making it this way.

It was good. The tater tots were a good idea. Before I put the filling in I did blot off the potatoes. Needed seasonings, salt pepper, garlic powder. Maybe some fresh herb, more bacon. I would use regular frozen spinach instead of creamed spinach. I think the creamed spinach might be making it sort of one note. Did like the tater tot idea though.
