Bacon, Kale & Sweet Potato Paleo Quiche!

separator

When I first got it in my head that I wanted to make a paleo quiche, I was thinking of using a flaky almond meal pizza crust recipe I recently made as the crust for the quiche… but then I thought why go make it all SWYPO when it could be just a delicious & decadent & filling while staying Whole 30 compliant.

Mission accomplished. This beauty is absolutely delicious & satisfying. I made ahead, divided it in to 8 slices & arranged those in tupper ware for a week day grab and go breakfast…. but make no mistake, this quiche would also be a hit on your Sunday brunch spread.
