Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Dry the hash browns thoroughly by pressing between several layers of paper towels. In a 9-inch pie plate coated with cooking spray, press the hash browns into the bottom and up the sides of the plate to form the crust. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and bake for approximately 25 minutes or until the crust is golden brown.
While the crust bakes, melt the butter in a medium skillet and add the onions. Cook the onions until they become carmelized, approximately 20 minutes. Stir in the thyme and season with salt and pepper to taste.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs and half and half. Set aside.
Spread the onions in an even layer on top of the hash browns and then top with 3/4 cup of the shredded cheese. Pour the egg mixture into the pan and sprinkle with the remaining cheese.
Reduce the oven temperature to 350 degrees and bake for approximately 40 minutes or until the quiche is golden brown and puffed.
