      Sweet Potato Crusted Quiche

      • 1 medium sweet potatoe (8 oz if you want to be exact)
      • 1/4 pound cooked ground turkey
      • 1 cup shaved brussel sprouts
      • 1/4 cup chopped onion
      • 1/2 cup almond milk
      • Pinch of salt & pepper
      • 4 eggs
      • 2 egg whites (about 1/4 cup)
      • 1.5 ounces shredded cheddar
      • Optional: crushed red pepper

      You will also need a circular 9" ovensafe dish

      Instructions

      1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees
      2. Spray pie dish with cooking spray. Evenly slice sweet potato into 1/8 inch thick slices. I used a mandolin slicer 
      3. Evenly lay slices of sweet potatoes and cover bottom of pan. Once bottom is done, cut remaining slices in half, place flat side down to create the back of your crust
      4. Pop in oven for 20 minutes. 
      5. While baking, spray non stick skillet: Add raw onions. After three minutes, add shaved brussel sprouts, and one tablespoon of water. Cover. (This step keeps calorie count low, no oil). Once onion & brussels sprouts are cooked, remove from heat. Set aside uncovered. 
      6. Spray another small skillet and add ground turkey.  Season with salt and pepper for taste & keep on heat until cooked all the way through (about 5-7 minutes).
      7. In side bowl add remaining ingredients, whisk until yolks are mixed in completely. 
      8. Remove pan from oven, increase heat to 375 degrees. 
      9. While heating, lay ground turkey, brussel sprouts, & onion mixture flatly across bottom of sweet potatoe crust. Next, pour egg mixtures on top. 
      10. Top with shredded cheddar. 
      11. Bake for 40 minutes


      Mom's Chocolate Trifle

      • 1 box of chocolate cake mix (I used Ghirardelli's Double Chocolate Cake mix because, why not?)
      • 1 box instant chocolate pudding
      • 1 container light Cool Whip (tip: Okay, so embarrassingly enough, I could NOT find this anywhere at the grocery store.  When I finally asked, it's found in the freezer section.  Just trying to save you the embarrassment I endured!)
      • 1 bag crushed heath bar

      Instructions (YES, its THIS easy)

      1. Prepare cake as instructed on box.  Let cool for 20 minutes.
      2. Prepare pudding as instructed on box.  Place in fridge to cool.
      3. Defrost Cool Whip (night before: in fridge.  for immediate: on counter, 30 minutes)
      4. Take container of choice (I used a MASSIVE martini glass), and begin layering the four ingredients. Always start with cake on the bottom.  Cut to fit container shape.  Each cake piece should be about 1" in thickness
      1. Cake, pudding, cool whip, heath bar.
      2. Cake, pudding, cool whip, heath bar.
      3. Cake, pudding, cool whip, heath bar.
