Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Coat a 9-inch pie plate with cooking spray; set aside. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.

  • Place sweet potato slices in a 2-quart square microwave-safe baking dish. Add 2 tablespoons water to the baking dish. Cover with vented plastic wrap. Microwave on 100% power (high) 3 to 5 minutes or just until sweet potatoes are tender. Drain; cool slightly.

  • Arrange sweet potato slices evenly across the bottom and up the sides of the prepared pie plate, overlapping as necessary to cover.

  • Sprinkle crumbled bacon over sweet potato in pie plate; sprinkle with sweet pepper and onion. Top with cheddar cheese and gouda cheese.

  • In a large bowl whisk together eggs, milk and hot pepper sauce. Pour egg mixture over vegetables and cheese in the pie plate. Bake about 45 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack (see Tip).

  • Cover and chill at least 6 hours or up to 24 hours before serving. To serve, cut into six wedges. Microwave, one wedge at a time, on 70% power about 2 minutes or until heated through. If desired, garnish with parsley.


Tip: If you prefer to serve right away, let stand 10 minutes before cutting and serving.

Substituted turkey bacon as I can not locate in my area a low sodium low fat bacon-but this was delicious! Cooking for 1 am delighted with recipes that leftovers can be used/stored- started with a brunch with roasted beet salad-then saved for breakfast on 2 days and an easy dinner again with a side salad and broiled fruit definitely a keeper-!!
