I thought that quiches were too boring and simple to post about but NO! Clearly everyone was more than interested to try these babies out, so I typed the recipe out below. I just love how creative you can get with the fillings, and how damn easy there are!

Basic Quiche
 2 medium sweet potatoes
 6 eggs
 60 ml milk (can replace with cream for a richer flavour)
 salt and pepper
 250 g diced bacon (cooked)
 200 g diced pumpkin (steamed)
 2 tbsp caramelised onions
 40 g grated cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 180 degrees. Scrub your sweet potatoes clean and slice thinly. Lay them out in a slightly overlapping fashion in a greased quiche dish. Spray lightly with some oil (I used coconut) and sprinkle some salt on. Bake in oven for 25 minutes.


While that bakes prepare your filling. Beat the eggs, milk, salt and pepper together with a whisk.


Remove 'crust' from oven and pour egg filling in gently, taking care not to dislodge the sweet potato too much. Sprinkle in your cheese, then add your pumpkin bits, bacon and caramelised onion. Add the thyme.

Bake in the oven for about 30 minutes depending on the size of your dish (centre should be just set).
