Shredded sweet potatoes are a great alternative to the calorie heavy pie crust in this Spinach, Bacon, Cheese Quiche with Sweet Potato Crust. They add a touch of sweetness to this savory and hearty quiche!
On Monday I shared a sweet recipe, Gingerbread Dutch Baby with Cider Apples, for your Christmas morning breakfast and today I’m sharing a savory one. Spinach, Bacon, Cheese Quiche with Sweet Potato Crust is a must Christmas morning!
I made it through October, November and half of December only having to do a few of my runs on the treadmill. Luckily none of them were my long Saturday run. However, it’s looking like my luck may run out. As of right now there is a chance of snow Saturday morning and the temperature when I go out to run will be 1.
I dread having to do long runs on the treadmill every year. The boredom is almost more than I can handle. The first half of the run is usually the worst, by the second half I’ve kind of accepted it and stopped counting how many miles I have left.
Luckily there’s a TV in the basement so I can at least catch up on all the shows I’ve missed or put in a movie. It helps a little, but it’s absolutely not the same as being outside. Better than freezing or falling on ice I suppose.
With any luck I’ll be able to run outside on Christmas morning. Every year since we moved to Colorado I haven’t been able to because we’ve gotten a big snow. I especially love running outside on holidays because there’s no cars out and it’s so quiet. Just me and the occasional wildlife sighting.
After the Christmas morning run, I’ll be making this quiche as part of our breakfast. My husband tends to sleep in whenever he has the opportunity, so I’ll have plenty of time to get everything prepared.
The filling for the quiche can be made the night before, but I probably wouldn’t assemble everything until morning so that the sweet potato crust stays crisp.
I loved using the shredded sweet potatoes as an alternative to pie dough for a couple reasons. First it’s lighter on fat and calories and it’s a vegetable, bonus! I also love the texture and bit of sweetness that it adds to the savory quiche. Pie crust often lacks flavor, but this sweet potato crust is full of it!
You’ll be adding a healthier, but extremely delicious alternative quiche to your breakfast table this year when you make this Spinach, Bacon, Cheese Quiche with Sweet Potato Crust!
