An easy way to eat vegetables for breakfast! This Sweet Potato Crust Quiche can feed a crowd or you can enjoy the leftovers!

I made you a veggie heavy meal to fill your new year with.

If your New Year’s resolution is to eat more veggies, I’ve got you covered. 

If your New Year’s resolution is to get more sleep, I’ve still got you covered because this quiche comes together really quick.  Less time cooking equals more time sleeping.

My list of resolutions keeps growing: (1) stick to my “5 minutes a day” cleaning routine, (2) improve my deadlift form, (3) read an article a day from Yahoo Finance so I’m more interesting and can say interesting things in conversations.

Three resolutions.  Not too unachievable. 

And maybe a fourth resolution would be to never overcook eggs again.  I’ve eaten far too many dry omelets and quiches in my life.  So you know, once the quiche is just set on top, it’s done!  Don’t let your eggs get dry and rubbery...the worst.

Quiches and omelets seem to be the go-to meal in our house when we need something easy to make that is still packed with veggies.  I like quiches because they’re like soups, in that you can add in any vegetables + cheese combination you have in your fridge and it’ll more than likely taste great.

Pair with a salad, possibly , and you’ve got yourself lunch (or dinner).
