Sweet Potato Quiche
My friend Rich asked me if I could make him a sweet potato quiche. Now normally, sweet potato is not my favorite food. But Rick is a good friend so I looked up some suggestions on the internet and then headed to the grocery store. In the produce section I couldn’t find any sweet potato, so I had to substitute a yam. This recipe was so easy to prepare and even I was surprised at how good it tasted!
1 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 cup cheddar cheese, grated
1 sweet potato, peeled and sliced very thin
1/2 onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 cup green pepper, chopped
1/4 cup red pepper, chopped
1/2 cup frozen corn
1 medium tomato, chopped
1 frozen pie crust
Saute the onion, garlic and peppers in a little olive. Once the onions are translucent, turn off the heat and add the chopped tomato. In a bowl, whisk the eggs, then slowly add the milk. Add the salt and pepper to the egg mixture.
Spoon 3/4 of the onion-pepper mixture onto the bottom of the pie crust. Layer slices of sweet potato on top. Sprinkle half of the cheese and corn on top of the sweet potato. Add another layer of sweet potato slices. Top with the rest of the onion-pepper mixture and corn. Sprinkle the rest of the
cheese on top of that. Pour the egg mixture over everything.
Bake at 375 degrees F for about 45 minutes uncovered.
