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. Making this bacon leek and sweet potato quiche, just ½ a Healthy Extra A per slice, which means if you don't have a healthy extra free, you can syn the cheese on one slice at 3.5 syns, or if enjoy 2 - YES 2 SLICES, for your full healthy extra.

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 SPEED FOODS TO THIS BACON LEEK AND SWEET POTATO QUICHE?
There are already some speed foods included in the quiche with those yummy leeks, you could also swap out the sweet potato for butternut squash, just to increase those speed foods even further. I love to serve this bacon leek and sweet potato quichee 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.

Christy Marin says
Made this along side the lentil soup last night, really nice and looked so pretty! thank you very much!
This looks gorgeous although, I do not like any type of cottage cheese, is it well broken down when this is cooked or can you still feel its texture?
Jenny Robinson says
good and so easy, next time will add some mixed herbs
Jenny Robinson says
give it a go, u cud change the filling to any other veg just stick to same principles
hi there, if you blend up the cottage cheese with the eggs as instructed, you won't even know it has cottage cheese in it. Taste just like quiche without the pastry base 🙂 - enjoy!!
I made this tonight and it was divine! Thanks so much for the recipe!
nichola richardson says
cant wait to try this thanks x
nichola richardson says
is it still ok without cheese on thanks?
Aileen Hampson says
what size flan dish did you use please?
Melanie Anne Ross says
Another hit... made this today for lunch and my partner stated, "we're definitely having that again" 🙂 x
Glad you enjoyed it 🙂
Is 400g cottage cheese correct. Was far too much for my dish and didn't set I don't know what I have Done?
Can you use quark instead of cottage cheese??
Shevy (Slimming Eats) says
Hi Sarah, I haven't tried, but as the cottage cheese is blended, it should work the same. Enjoy!
Made this today, absolutely gorgeous!! Using your recipe I made a 7” flan and another 5 mini quiche too
James Capstick says
This is very nice quiche. Falls apart a bit when just baked but once cooled a bit keeps its integrity.
Made this today and it was an absolute hit. Delicious! Thanks for posting 🙂
I made this tonight, was so good. I'm not a fan of cottage cheese but makes it a lovely texture. Added different veg to what I had in but was really good
Lovely very impressed with it thank you for the recipe
Katy Gooch-Firmin says
I have just made this today, very delicious. I used Butternut Squash as that is what was left in the fridge and I only had about 230g of cottage cheese but it still tasted greats.
My husband doesn't like the sweetness of sweet potato or butternut squash - could I make this with regular potato?
Siobhan (Slimming Eats) says
Yep sure regular potato will work fine.
Can you freeze this quiche please?
Siobhan (Slimming Eats) says
yes I have frozen it before with no issues. I defrost fully in the fridge and then reheat in the oven.
This is amazing, I detest cotteage cheese, however, whne blitzed with the eggs, you would never know. I make double now as it freezes really well, I do drain any liquid off before putting in the quiche pan, that way it doesnt fall apart as easy. When cool, I divide into 4 portions per quiche & freeze individually. If I take out a portion in the morning its ready to reheat at lunchtime to go along with a salad. I just put microwave on at a lower power and heat for a few minutes. Still one of my all time favourites!!!
