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
