The sweet potatoes in this dish make an excellent alternative to the traditional flour based pie crust...they provide a sweet taste to match the savory flavors of sausage and sage. Sweet potatoes are loaded with immune boosting antioxidants and make a great friendly carbohydrate choice because they work to stabilize your blood sugar and keep you feeling fuller longer compared to flour or white potatoes.

This quiche comes together in under 15 minutes hands-on time and makes for both a great casual breakfast or fancy brunch dish. Big winner in my household and with our guests!
Sausage & Sage Quiche with Sweet Potato Crust (PRINT RECIPE)
½ tablespoon coconut oil
1 small to medium sweet potato, peeled
½ pound organic chicken breakfast sausage, thinly sliced if precooked or casings removed & crumbled if raw
1 teaspoon chopped fresh sage (rosemary also works lovely here)
9 organic, pastured eggs

½ teaspoon sea salt

Time Saving Tips:
You can also do steps 2 through 6 ahead of time, cover and refrigerate. Then add the egg-milk mixture in the morning and pop it into the oven to bake for an easy breakfast or brunch option. This quiche keeps very well in the fridge for up to 4 days and can be reheated for a nice lunch or snack.
