Grab a slice of this delicious bacon leek and sweet potato quiche with your favourite salad sides, for an easy simple lunch.
I'm a huge fan of crustless quiche. It's always a perfect dish to make for lunches for the week, you can make it up in advance and it can easily be varied with different fillings and then all you have to do is grab a slice and enjoy. It's perfect hot or cold too, which means if you run a busy work schedule, you don't need to worry about trying to find heating facilities to warm this up.
In the summer I always make a crustless quiche to take with us on a picnic or day out, because of the eggs they have a good source of protein and are really filling and high satiety, which means it doesn't feel like I am missing out when there are lots of yummy foods on offer at a picnic or get together.
This bacon leek and sweet potato quichequiche has just the perfect combination of fillings - bacon and leeks just pair together amazing, and that lovely sweetness of the added sweet potato, means you really won't miss out on the usual crust you expect with a quiche.
Then, of course, there is that tempting golden cheese topping, a quiche even a crustless one, just has to have some kind of cheesy topping, right? Here I use a good quality cheddar and just grate it on the top.

Don't worry if you are not a fan of cottage cheese, you really won't even notice this bacon leek and sweet potato quiche has cottage cheese in it because we blend it until smooth with the eggs. I like to use my Nutri Ninja Blender with Auto IQ to blend the cottage cheese and eggs. This blender is amazing. The auto IQ technology feature, mean it blends to a set pattern depending on what it is you are making. There is also an optional add-on for a food processor bowl, which is perfect for chopping and grating vegetables. Sauces and soups are literally so smooth, once completed with this amazing kitchen gadget.
Don’t worry though if you don’t have a full-size blender like mine. A stick immersion blender, like this Koölle Electric Powerful 3-in-1 800 Watt Hand Stick Blender will work just as well.
HOW CAN I ADD A ⅓ VEGETABLES TO THIS BACON LEEK AND SWEET POTATO QUICHE?
There are already some vegetables included in the quiche with those yummy leeks, you could also swap out the sweet potato for butternut squash, just to increase those vegetables even further. I love to serve this bacon leek and sweet potato quiche with a mixed salad of baby greens, carrot ribbons and beetroot. I'm totally obsessed with beets at the moment, just can't seem to get enough of them.
