Ingredients
  

  • 2 sweet potatoes, peeled and sliced thin, crosswise making rounds
  • 2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 6 slices thick cut bacon, cut into 1/2 inch pieces
  • 1 c diced red onion
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 c spinach leaves
  • 6 eggs
  • 1/2 tsp dried basil
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper

Instructions
 

  • To begin, preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
  • Arrange the sweet potato slices in the bottom of a deep dish pie plate. I do this in a circular pattern, overlapping them slightly. Come up the sides of the pie plate a little with the slices. These will form your crust for the quiche.
  • Drizzle or spritz the sweet potatoes with the olive oil. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the sweet potatoes are tender. Set this aside.
  • Reduce the oven temperature to 375 degrees.
  • Meanwhile, saute the bacon in a skillet over medium low heat until golden and crisp. With a slotted spoon, transfer the bacon to a plate lined with paper towels, leaving about 2 tablespoons of the drippings in the skillet.
  • Saute the onion in the bacon drippings until they are translucent.
  • Add the minced garlic, and continue to cook until the onions and garlic are just tender.
  • Add in the spinach and cook until just wilted. About 2 minutes. Remove from the heat.
  • Arrange the spinach mixture over the top of the sweet potato crust.
  • In a bowl, beat the eggs, basil, salt and pepper. Pour the mixture over the top of the contents of the pie plate.
  • Sprinkle the bacon all over the top.
  • Bake for 30-35 minutes or until the eggs are set. The quiche will puff up as it bakes.
  • Allow the quiche to rest 5-10 minutes before serving. As it rests, it will sink back down in the center.
  • Enjoy!
