Chicken Bacon Quiche in a Potato Crust

I love quiches! In the past I have made several for my blog, including an Asian inspired one and toaster oven quiches which I made for a while when we discovered the stove in the house we bought was not quite functional. Mostly my quiche routine is the same, I switch around fillings here and there but nothing new, til now. I came up with the brilliant idea to use thinly sliced potatoes as a crust for my latest quiche.

2 chicken breast (pre cooked)
6 slices of bacon
2 small potatoes
generous sprinkles of:
minced onion
black pepper
garlic powder

quiche base:
2 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup flour
1 cup milk
5 eggs
5 pieces swiss cheese
1/4 cup parmesean cheese

I use a mandolin to slice the potatoes. It is so fast. I have had one in my drawer for years and not used it til very recently. I have no idea why I resisted using it, but I was mistaken. That thing is amazing!

Layer then in a greased pan

All of my ingredients prepared

Melt the butter

Mix in the flour

Whisk in the milk

Stir on medium low heat until it thinckens and add the spices

Take off the heat and melt in the cheese

Add the eggs one at a time, mixing between each one

Add the bacon chicken and chives

Pour over potatoes

And sprinkle with parmesean cheese

Bake at 325 for about and hour or so
