Author Notes: Growing up in North Carolina, sweet potatoes were plentiful during the winter months. While I love ooey-gooey sweet potatoes with marshmallows, I was looking for other ways to enjoy them. When the "quiche fad" hit, I thought of using sweet potatoes in a quiche and this recipe was born.mleverette

  • 1 pastry for 10-inch tart pan
  • 2 cups grated fresh sweet potatoes

  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees F.
