A splash of maple syrup gives this colorful, delicious quiche a bit of sweetness, but it's savory too. Try pairing it with a light salad for lunch, or with fruit for breakfast.

This is a unique quiche and we really enjoyed it! I roasted and then pureed the sweet potato instead of cooking and slicing (mostly because I have picky eaters); and grated the onion. I added these to the eggs/yogurt/spices mixture. I layered bacon and swiss cheese, poured the filling, then topped with more cheese and a little bacon. This would have worked just as well adding the bacon and cheese to the mixture, though. I hope you try this and share your tweakings, too.
