Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Generously coat a muffin tin with cooking spray.

  • 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.

  • Divide ham and red pepper among the cups. Top with cheese, keeping it away from the edges to minimize sticking.

  • Whisk eggs, milk, salt and pepper in a large measuring cup. Carefully pour the mixture into the cups, dividing evenly.

  • 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 (1/2-cup) cups

These are really good! The only change I made was adding a little sweet onion and using green pepper instead of red. I love the texture and flavor. Will become a regular make ahead breakfast for me! Read More
