Turkey Bacon and Spinach Quiche with Sweet Potato Crust

Usually made with gobs of cheese, heavy cream, and eggs, quiche is normally a calorie-dense dish. Instead, this Simple Cooking with Heart quiche slashes calories and fat with egg whites, fat-free cheese, turkey bacon and skim milk--not to mention a crust made of grated sweet potatoes that is so tasty, you'll never miss traditional pastry dough. Served hot, cold, or at room temperature, quiche no longer needs to be an indulgence.

Cooking Tip: A good way to test if the eggs in a quiche are set is to stick a toothpick or fork right in the center of the quiche. If it's clean when removed, the eggs are fully cooked.

Keep it Healthy Icon

Keep it Healthy: Using a layer of grated sweet potatoes in place of a pastry crust not only slashes extra calories and saturated fat, it adds a touch of subtle sweetness to the quiche. Consider going this route for a few dessert pies as well, like pumpkin pie.

Cooking Tip Icon

Cooking Tip: Frozen and thawed greens tend to work better in quiches since a lot of the liquid has already been cooked out of it before freezing. To use fresh greens, make sure to sauté it well and squeeze out any liquid from it before adding to the quiche.
