Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Prepare crust by gently mixing hash browns with the melted butter. Coat a 9x13" pan with cooking spray and press the potato mixture evenly on bottom. Cook in oven for 20-30 minutes or until potatoes look golden brown.

Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees and remove pan from the oven.

Put quiche on middle rack; bake until filling is just set, 40-45 minutes.  Turn on broiler; broil until cheese bubbles, about 2 minutes.  To test if quiche is done, insert a knife in the center, if it comes out clean, the quiche is ready.  Remove, let quiche rest a few minutes, then cut and serve.
