Sweet Potato Crusted Quiche

I absolutely love quiche of any kind. I can add any number of ingredients to them and use so many different types of crust. So they’re perfect to make a meal that works for anyone I am entertaining. This time I went with a low carb and lean sweet potato crusted quiche and oh my gosh was I happy with it! It was such a hearty breakfast but it wasn’t heavy at all and still kept me pretty on track with my resolutions. It even can be made ahead so that it just needs to bake in the morning!

Sweet potatoes made such a fantastic crust for this quiche. I shredded 5 of them and seasoned them well before I pressed them into my greased pie pan. Then it just needed to bake for 30 minutes to get cooked through and slightly crisp.
While the crust baked, I cooked up the yummy filling. It was packed with lean turkey breakfast sausage, roasted red peppers, mushrooms, and onion. It had so many of my favorite Italian flavors going on!
The most important element of any quiche is the egg mixture that holds it together. The milk and seasonings I added to the eggs really made it a gorgeous binder for the whole dish! I made sure to really whip up the eggs well to get some air in them. That made for a fluffier quiche.
The filling just went right into the cooked crust before I poured the egg mixture all over it. Then it took about 45 minutes for the sweet potato crusted quiche to bake to perfection.

So basically, not only was this recipe delicious, it was also really simple. Grating the sweet potatoes took the most prep time but it wasn’t hard to do. If I wanted to make this ahead for breakfast the next day, I would have gone to the point of putting it all together. Then it would have sat covered in my fridge overnight to just bake in the morning. Easy peasy! Hope you all love this wonderful meal!! xoxo

Ingredients
FOR THE CRUST
  • 1 dash olive oil
  • 5 cups grated sweet potatoes from about 5 small peeled sweet potatoes
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 pinch black pepper
  • 1 pinch garlic powder
FOR THE FILLING
  • 1 dash olive oil
  • 8 ounces turkey breakfast sausage links casings removed
  • 8 ounces cremini mushrooms thinly sliced
  • 1 jar roasted red peppers 12 ounces, drained and chopped small
  • 1 whole onion finely diced
  • 6 whole eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 pinch black pepper
  • 1 pinch dried parsley
Instructions
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 425 and grease a 9 inch pie pan with a dash of olive oil. Take the grated sweet potato and toss it with the pinch of salt, pepper and garlic powder. Then press it into the greased pan firmly, including up the sides, to form a crust. Bake it for 30 minutes. Keep an eye on it. If it starts to become too charred, take it out and cover it with foil before you put it back in. While it bakes, make the easy filling. Get out a large skillet and heat the olive oil in it over medium high heat. Brown the turkey sausages in it while you break them up. Once it is pretty cooked, add in the roasted red peppers, mushrooms and onion. Let them cook with the sausage until soft and fragrant for a few minutes. Take it off the heat and let it cool.

  2. When the crust is done, take it out and let it cool while you finish the filling. You don’t want anything to be so hot to scramble the egg mixture! Speaking of the egg filling, whisk the eggs, milk, salt, pepper and dried parsley together in a bowl. Really whisk it well until you see bubbles to know that some air is in those eggs. Spread the sausage mixture evenly in the cooled crust, then pour the egg mixture over it to fill it to the top. At this point, you can cover the quiche and refrigerate it overnight. When you are ready to bake, get the quiche into a 425 oven still covered in foil for 35 minutes. Then uncover it and bake it for another 8-10 minutes, until completely set. Let it cool a minute, then slice and serve immediately!
