Asparagus And Turkey Bacon Quiche With Sweet Potato Crust

Say hello to your new favorite breakfast recipe!

This would not only be perfect for a weekend brunch, but it’s also great for meal prepping! It makes six slices, I save my leftovers in the fridge and reheat for breakfast, so easy for busy mornings!

I usually make crustless frittatas, but I got this sweet potato crust idea from Ambitious Kitchen and thought it was genius! It was not only easy to prepare, but the hint of sweetness made the quiche taste amazing. I topped mine with crumbled feta cheese – which is totally optional!

^This is how your sweet potato crust should look. Just slice a sweet potato into thin rounds (about 1/8 inch thick) Spray a 9 inch round baking dish with cooking spray and lay the rounds around the dish – you may need to cut some to fit right like I did. Then you’ll lightly spray the top of the sweet potato crust before baking for about 18 minutes.
