Sweet Potato Crust Quiche

I have seen this recipe floating around Goodful on Facebook for a while now so decided it is time to give it a go. This quiche is like a frittata with a yummy sweet potato layer as the base to make it resemble a quiche (but without the pastry!). 

Not only is it delicious, it is a well balanced meal with a good mix of veggies, healthy carbs (sweet potato) and protein (eggs and feta). I served it with a handful of mesclun and next time I make this I am planning to also make a chunky tomato sauce to serve with it 😋

This made enough for Brendin and I, so 2 serves. If you wanted to make it go a bit further then add more eggs and an extra dash of milk for each egg.
