Spinach Quiche with Sweet Potato Crust

I love making quiche on Sunday morning! It is quick and easy and packed with protein to keep you fueled for your day. Another reason I love making this on Sunday’s is you can have the leftovers for breakfast or lunch the rest of the week.

This is a pretty quiche with the layers and orange and green. The eggs will fill in any cracks between the crust which is perfect. Enjoy your breakfast!
