Nadiya Hussain's best budget cakes and bakes potato rosti quiche

Potato Rösti Quiche from Nadiya Bakes by Nadiya Hussain

This clever bake is a mish-mash of a potato rösti and a quiche – here Nadiya uses a mixture of sweet and regular potatoes, paprika, onion and garlic to make a light, crisp base, and packs it with a creamy cheese and chive filling. None of the faff of regular pastry and all of the deliciousness.
