Sweet potato hash brown crust is what your quiche has been missing
With a family with a very active daily life, I find it important to start our mornings off with a filling but healthy breakfast. This recipe is one of our go-tos since it is full of good carbs from sweet potatoes and protein from eggs.
As a time-saving shortcut, I used frozen sweet potato hash browns, but when I have more time, I enjoy making the crust fresh by grating them. Once the crust is baked and crispy, it gets filled with a typical quiche filling — eggs and plenty of veggies and cheese.
This tasty twist on quiche is gluten-free and super good for you, whether it's for breakfast, brunch or even an easy dinner with the leftovers.
