To make this paleo cut out the cheese and add coconut milk instead of the milk.

The Crust:
1 sweet potato
2 eggs
1/4 cup of cream or half & half (or coconut cream)
1 tablespoon fresh rosemary minced
1/3 cup of gruyere cheese (or swiss cheese)
Pinch of salt and pepper

The quiche:
4 eggs
1 1/2 cup 2% or whole milk (or coconut milk)
1 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon of Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon of dried dill
1/2 teaspoon of black pepper
1/2 teaspoon of sea salt
1 tablespoon of capers, drained
1-3 garlic cloves, pressed
2-4 oz of cream cheese, crumbled into bits
4 oz of smoked salmon broken into bits
1/2 cup of thinly slice green onions, (use the whole onion)

Instructions:

Whisk the eggs, milk, mustard and spices up into a froth in a medium workhorse of a bowl. Add the garlic and cream cheese and mix in. Sprinkle the bottom of sweet potato crust with the salmon. Pour the egg mix over top and a little dried dill for beauty. Bake this creation at 40-45 minutes at 350 degrees until center stops wiggling when you touch it and a toothpick comes out clean from the center. Serve after it has set for about 20- 30 minutes. (I know, I know it’s hard to wait!) It is really very good cold, served with a lightly dressed salad to celebrate pie day!
