Quiche Me with Sweetness
(Quiche with Sweet Taters as the Crust)

Serves about…meh…6?

Things You’re Gonna Need:

1 Big Ass Sweet Potato
4 Slices of yummy bacon goodness
1/2 cup chopped green pepper
3 Tbsp. oh so finely chopped onion
1/2 cup of shredded (gnarly) cheddar cheese
2 oz of shredded (probably by you) gouda cheese… smoked is fine, dude
1 3/4 cups of egg or “egg product”…. like the Egg Beaters but we don’t condone violence
1/2 cup of fat-free milk
1/4 tsp. of hot pepper sauce (I used the beer -based stuff from here.)
Pretty parsley leaves for some art-deco

Whatcha Gotta Do:

  1. Get a pie plate and spray it with some swell cooking oil.
  2. Heat oven to 325° F.
  3. Peel and slice your sweet potato (give thanks for it’s goodness while doing) and place it in baking dish. Toss in 2 Tbsp. of water and nuke for about 5 minutes. Make sure you cover it with plastic wrap… and pop a few holes in it. Let that cool when done.
  4. Take the sweet potato and arrange it in the bottom and up the sides of the pie plate (like you are making a pie, duh). It’s okay and good to overlap.
  5. Sprinkle on the bacon you crisped up earlier (What? You didn’t? Go cook 4 pieces until crunchy and then crumble. This is why we read the whole recipe ahead of time.)
  6. Throw on the green pepper and onion. Top with the cheesy goodness.
  7. Whisk together the egg stuff, milk, and hot pepper sauce.
  8. Pour it over your veggies and cheese in the pie plate.
  9. Bake it in the oven for around 45-50 minutes. Stick it with a knife or toothpick and if nothing attaches itself, you are done!
  10. Cool for 10 minutes (on a wire rack if you have one).
  11. Slice it up. Decorate with the pretty parsley.

Eat it.
