Mini Quiches with Sweet Potato Crust

Ingredients

  • 1½ cups shredded peeled sweet potato
  • 1 tablespoon avocado oil
  • ½ cup diced ham
  • ½ cup diced red pepper
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 6 eggs
  • ½ cup nonfat milk
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper

Preparation: Ready in 30 minutes

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Generously coat a muffin tin with cooking spray.
  2. Toss sweet potato and oil in a medium bowl. Divide among the 12 muffin cups, pressing into the bottom and up the sides to create a crust.
  3. Divide ham and red pepper among the cups. Top with cheese, keeping it away from the edges to minimize sticking.
  4. Whisk eggs, milk, salt and pepper in a large measuring cup. Carefully pour the mixture into the cups, dividing evenly.
  5. Bake until set and cooked through, 22 to 28 minutes. Run a knife around the edges of the quiches and remove from the tin while still hot. Serve warm.
  • To make ahead: Individually wrap in plastic and refrigerate for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 1 month. To reheat, remove plastic, wrap in a paper towel and microwave on High for 30 to 60 seconds.
  • Equipment: Muffin tin with 12 ( ½-cup) cups
