The easiest recipe to make and I don't feel guilty eating it! Thank you! – Tony Williams
Being a working mother is tough! One night while looking through "kid-friendly vegetable recipes" I found this gem. But the problem is that I didn't have all the same ingredients that were listed in the recipe and then I had a lightbulb idea! I made my own quiche recipe with leftovers I had in the fridge. Fast-forward to the dinner table and all 3 of my picky-eaters scarfed the quiche down and asked for seconds. Working mom for the win!!!
Quiche with Sweet Potato Crust
1 cup cheese-blend of your choice (cheddar, feta, goat, whatever is in your fridge!)

Veggie of your choice: 3-4 chopped mushrooms, or 1/2 broccoli or 1/2 cup wilted spinach

In a mixing bowl, whisk eggs and spices.
Place onions and veggies and meats and cheeses onto crust
Pour egg mixture on top of crust
Add cheese and make sure mixture is combined well with solid ingredients
