Instructions Checklist
  • To prepare crust: Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Coat a 9-inch deep-dish pie pan with cooking spray. Stir sweet potato, 1 egg, Parmesan, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper together in a medium bowl. Transfer the mixture to the prepared pan and press it evenly into the bottom and up the sides of the pan. Bake until the crust is set and beginning to brown around the edges, about 25 minutes.

  • To prepare filling and bake quiche: Evenly scatter broccoli, Cheddar and shallots over the crust. Whisk eggs and sour cream in a small bowl until smooth. Whisk in milk, salt and pepper. Pour the egg mixture over the other filling ingredients. Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees F. Bake the quiche until the filling is set in the center and beginning to brown slightly, 35 to 45 minutes. Let cool slightly before serving.

Sounded good. Looked very pretty coming out of the oven. But bland bland bland. I made it exactly according to the recipe. I won t try to modify it to make it better it is just too far from acceptable. It s easier just to get a better recipe. Read More

It was tasty but although the recipe didn't say to cook the broccoli first it should have. And then well drained. Very watery crust turned to mush. I baked for a total of 60 minutes. I did prepare it in the afternoon to bake for dinner so the pie was cold when it went into the oven. Also do cut off all the stems. Firm stems very soft tops. It might firm up after overnight in the fridge. Also VERY labor intensive! Shred the sweet potato shred the cheddar grate the Parmesan as well as trim the broccoli. Read More
