My husband introduced me to wonderful recipes involving eggs. Before meeting him, I only know three ways to cook eggs – hard-boiled, easy (or sunny side up), and omelet.

The first time he made a quiche for me, I remembered being so amazed with it. I mean, how can eggs be so tasty?!

Since then, I became more experimental with these kitchen staples.

Making this Broccoli Cheddar Quiche with Bacon and Sweet Potato Crust

This Broccoli Cheddar Quiche is so tasty! It has the right blend of creaminess, salt, and crunch.

What I love most about it is that it only calls for simple ingredients and it’s so easy to make! This has become my go-to recipe when I’m tight on time but still want to make something filling and nutritious.

The Ingredients

This quiche recipe only calls for simple ingredients (you may already have in your pantry right now):

  • Sweet potato
    We use a medium-sized sweet potato, cut into discs and carefully laid at the bottom of the pie dish to serve as the ‘crust.’
  • Eggs
    We’re being cautious about what we eat and try to cut back on anything with soy. In this recipe, I use cage-free eggs (the company claims the chickens have a soy-free diet).
  • Broccoli
    To add more bulk and fiber for this recipe, I added medium head broccoli, chopped into small bits.
  • White onion
    The chopped white onion added more flavor to this dish. You can use either white or sweet onion.
  • Cheese
    I use Cabot’s lactose-free sharp cheddar cheese as we’re cutting back on anything containing lactose. If you can tolerate lactose, feel free to use regular cheddar cheese.
  • Seasonings: salt, pepper, Italian seasoning, and smoked paprika
    I try to keep this simple and only seasoned it lightly with salt, pepper, Italian seasoning, and smoked paprika.
