Quiche!

I’ll admit that I’m not usually a huge fan of quiche, but I decided to make an exception for this recipe because I *am* a fan of goat cheese and sweet potatoes – and I’m glad I did because this was one tasty Goat Cheese and Sweet Potato Quiche!

It takes time to make – you have to roast the sweet potatoes and onions for 20 minutes before you bake the quiche for 45-55 minutes – so definitely plan ahead. And don’t, like I did, get distracted cleaning the bathroom and let the slices of sweet potato to be used for decoration burn to a black crisp – otherwise, everything went smoothly! The crust is also a lovely surprise – none of this chilling the butter and rolling things out, you just mix everything together into a lovely soft dough and then press it into the pie plate and voila! A nice, flaky quiche crust.

Jillian happened to be over catching up on TV (Parks and Rec and Happy Endings with a side trip into some Barefoot Contessa and an introduction to the train wreck that is Bitchin’ Kitchen) and both she and Drew approved of the quiche as well!

    Do you think this would work for mini-quiches too? I think they would be good to freeze uncooked and then pop in the over for a tasty freshly-baked dinner. I wonder if you can even freeze uncooked quiche. That’s one for google, I think!

    • Google says you can only freeze cooked quiche, and not to try freezing uncooked quiche. I imagine that wouldn’t work too badly. You must let me know how your freezer leftovers went!

      • Yeah, that’s what I found when Googling too. I wouldn’t have thought a dairy- and cheese-based item would work well after it had been frozen but the Internet seemed to think that freezing quiche was a good idea. I’ll try to remember to keep you posted!🙂

    • I know – she’s so cute in her bed!

      Ooh, mini-quiches would be a good idea – you could do them in various sizes of muffin tins. You’re so clever!
