Recipe Swap! – Spinach, Turkey Bacon, Cheese Quiche with Sweet Potato Crust

Hey y’all! So, I know that Sundays are usually meal prep days…But we are doing things a little different this week! Draz and I still had some food left over (planned for) and extra in the freezer, so I didn’t really do a prep this week. But I did make this delicious quiche!

Now, you may not know it, but one exciting thing that has happened over the past year for me is getting involved with Sweat Pink! Through that, I get to do neat stuff like this recipe swap with Alyse from Alyse MB. Not only am I super inspired by all of these amazing ladies, but it really pushes me to try new things too! They do all sorts of awesome challenges, like the recent #IAmLimitless challenge that they did with Gixo. Do you remember me talking about that a while back? That is just one example of the things they do that help push me to trying out new workouts, products, and more!

This recipe is one of those new things! It’s my first time making something with cast iron (I know, how is that even possible?!?) and the first time I’ve made the crust for a quiche from scratch. I’ve only ever even made quiche a few times before! This quiche is from Recipe Runner and it looks like she has a lot of delicious food! I will definitely be making more from her soon!

This delicious quiche can work for any meal!

 

All in all, this recipe swap was so fun to do and really helped me try out something new! And provided me with tasty meals this week! This is one of Alyse’s favorite recipes and I can see why! If you want to check out more about her, make sure to head over to her website and show her some love! She inspires me so much and I think she will inspire you too! She is one of the leading ladies behind Sweat Pink and I just love her energy and enthusiasm!

Enjoy!

Instructions
Sweet Potato Crust
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees and spray a 9-in cast iron skillet or other oven proof skillet with cooking oil.
  2. Place the shredded sweet potatoes in a bowl of water and toss around to release some of the starch.

  3. Drain and place the sweet potatoes in a clean towel and squeeze out any excess liquid. (I used paper towels layered over a kitchen towel)
  4. Place the sweet potatoes back in the bowl and add in the egg white, flour, salt and pepper. Toss until coated.
  5. Dump the mixture into the prepared skillet and press into an even layer along the bottom and up the sides.

  7. Remove from the oven and add in the quiche filling.
Quiche Filling
  1. Lower the oven temperature to 375
  2. Heat a medium skillet over medium heat. (Original recipe slightly differs at this direction.)
  3. Using kitchen shears or a knife, cut turkey bacon into bite size pieces and add to the skillet. Cook until crisp, then drain on a plate lined with paper towels.
  4. Remove any excess grease from the skillet, but don't wipe it clean.
  5. Add the green onions and spinach to the skillet and saute until the spinach wilts. Remove from skillet and add to the plate with the bacon.

  6. Once the spinach has cooled enough to handle, squeeze out any excess liquid.
  7. In a large bowl, whisk together all of the filling ingredients, reserving 1/4 cup of the cheeses.

One-Pot Cabbage Veggie Saute

Guys…I LOVE cooking with cabbage. Not only is it healthy, but it’s filling and budget-friendly too! It serves as a great base for other ingredients and can take on a lot of flavor. So when I wanted to create something inexpensive that could use up a bunch of veggies, I knew what I wanted to start with!

This vegetarian dish has everything! Packed with nutritious veggies and flavor! (Plus it's budget-friendly!) The perfect addition to your meal plan this week!

Basically, this recipe is one I just threw together. I’m probably going to edit this over time, but I liked it enough I wanted to share it with you from the start. With my trip to Idea World in Las Vegas recently, and both Draz and I working on building our businesses, money can get pretty tight. So making our meal prep as budget-friendly as possible is important! This recipe works great for that, and it’s flexible enough that you could really throw in most types of veggies that you have on hand.

To start off, here are the veggies that I used!

  • 1 small head cabbage
  • 3 bell peppers of various colors
  • 1 yellow onion
  • 3 carrots
  • roughly 4 cloves of garlic
  • a few handfuls of spinach

For the rest of this week’s meal prep (pictured below), make sure to check back tomorrow! (Or you can sign up for the email list and get it right to your inbox!)
