  1. Hello there, This sweet potato crust quiche has a base of thinly sliced roasted sweet potatoes for the crust and a filling loaded with sautéed veggies and cheese! It’s a delicious, healthy, and protein-filled dish to make for a special breakfast or holiday brunch! Thanks alot for sharing this awesome recipe I would give it a try.

    1. Thank you for your comments!  This dish is a great crowd-pleaser that can be made in advance and warmed to serve when your guests arrive!  Please check back in after you’ve made it and let me know what you think!

  2. This is such a great brunch idea. I am always looking for dishes to prepare and end up doing the same things over and over again. I love working with sweet potatoes, and the eggs will contribute to making this a highly nutritious dish. My family loves quiche and the addition of spinach would make it even more exciting. Thank you

    1. A friend gave me this recipe and I loved that it was unique.  I get bored having the same thing all the time and, let’s face it, there’s only so much you can do with eggs!  If you’re interested, this baked cauliflower casserole is another great brunch idea!

  3. Hi Cynthia! Thanks for sharing another great looking recipe with us. I’ve never made a quiche before but this one certainly looks simple enough to make so I’ll have to try it sometime. My only concern would be the crust being too sweet because of the sweet potatoes. Have you heard any complaints about it being overly sweet or does the rest of the quiche balance it out flavor wise?

    1. I have not had any feedback about it being too sweet and I think the other flavors balance it out nicely.  If you aren’t a fan of sweet potatoes, I think white potatoes would work fine.  Please let me know what you decide to use and how you liked it!

  4. That is a really different recipe and one that I would definitely try.

    I have never seen a recipe use sweet potato as a base before, so if I was having visitors I think that it would really impress.

    I think that I might change the spinach for bacon, as Spinach is something that I have never bought.

    I don’t think I would have to worry about freezing any of it, as it will soon disappear, but it is still good to know.

    Keep up the good work.

    1. Bacon would be GREAT in this recipe and I’m going to try that this weekend.  I don’t ever freeze it either, as I use it for my breakfast for the week!

  5. Hi, I’ve just gone through this wonderful post recipe about sweet potato crust quiche.
