3 cups shredded hash browns, thawed and drained
3 tablespoons butter, melted
3 large eggs, beaten
1/2 cup half and half
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup of bacon, cooked and crumbled
1/4 to 1/2 cup diced green onion
1 cup cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Gently press the drained hash browns between paper towels to dry them as best as possible. In a bowl, mix together the hash browns and melted butter. Put mixture into a 9-inch pie pan and press it into the bottom and up the sides of the pan to form an even crust. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes until golden brown and the edges are starting to get crispy. While the crust is baking, combine the remaining ingredients in a large bowl. When the hash brown crust is finished, pour the egg mixture over it and return to the oven. Lower the oven temperature to 350 degrees F and bake for about 30 minutes until the quiche is light golden brown on top and puffed.
