Brush a 9.5" deep dish (1 1/2"-2" high) pie plate with a tbsp of melted butter. Pat potatoes dry with a paper towel if needed. Toss potatoes with remaining 2 tbsp of melted butter and 1/2 tsp kosher salt. Press potatoes evenly into the pie plate and up the sides to form a crust. Using the back of a flat measuring cup helps to press it down. Bake potato crust for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and reduce oven temperature to 350°F. Meanwhile, chop bacon into 1/2" pieces and saute in a medium skillet until crisp. Remove to a paper towel-lined plate reserving 1 tbsp of bacon fat in the pan. To the same skillet add diced onion and red pepper and saute until starting to soften about 3-5 minutes. In a medium bowl whisk together eggs and sour cream until combined. Whisk in cream, basil, remaining 3/4 tsp salt, white pepper and chili flakes. Sprinkle the bacon, onion and red pepper evenly over the cooked potato crust. Top with an even layer of corn and cheese. Pour egg mixture evenly over everything. Shake gently to allow ingredients to settle. Bake on the middle rack for 35-40 minutes. The center should jiggle just a little while the outer edges are firmer to the touch. Allow the quiche to rest for 10 minutes prior to slicing. Slice into 6-8 wedges and serve immediately. Recipe Notes-I used white pepper to avoid having black flecks in the quiche, however black pepper is just as good.-Be sure to use a deep-dish pie plate as the filling will not fit in a standard pie plate. It needs to comfortably hold 32 ounces of liquid.
