Caramelized onion, spinach and sweet potato quiche

Like I have said in posts prior to this one, brunch is my favorite meal of the day. It is the perfect excuse to eat breakfast and lunch all at once, and it makes me feel really relaxed and lazy which I like in the mornings.

I have been on a waffle and pancake kick recently (not like you haven’t noticed). But, this morning I was really in the mood for something a little bit more savory. I have been thinking about coming up with a quiche recipe lately and today seemed like the perfect morning for the quiche recipe development.

This is a winner. Why did I not think of this sooner? Why do I never make quiche? Why am I asking all these questions? We just need to eat this quiche.

Ingredients

1 whole wheat pastry shell
3 Tbl olive oil
1 small sweet potato, cut very thin
1 small sweet onion, sliced thin
3 slices turkey bacon, diced
2 cups fresh baby spinach
5 whole eggs
2 egg whites
1/2 cup non-fat Greek yogurt
Salt/pepper

Preheat oven to 375 degrees

Add oil to a large skillet over medium heat and saute onions, potatoes, and turkey bacon. Cook, stirring often, until onions have softened and potatoes are beginning to soften. This should take about 8-10 minutes. Add in the spinach and allow to wilt. Season with salt and pepper and remove from heat.

In a bowl, combine eggs, egg whites, and yogurt. Whisk until combined. Season with salt and pepper.

Pour vegetable mixture into your unbaked pastry crust and pour egg mixture over top of that.

Bake in the oven for 30-35 minutes or until the center is set. Turn the broiler on and broil for five minutes or until the top is golden brown.

This can be eaten hot, cold, room temperature – It is great at any time/temperature!
