Meat crust quiche w/ zucchini and carrots! Oh yes.. paleo & gluten free

IMG_0922I totally agree with PaleOMG’s perspective that quiche without that fluffy crust is awful. So, when she posted a recipe for a MEAT Crust quiche I was 100% on board.  At the same though I was already committed to Practical Paleo’s Zucchini Carrot quiche … so, I merged them to something awesome.

Let me say the dish was awesome.  The meat was spicy and a perfect balance with the rest of the ingredients.  The sweet potato was clutch in neutralizing the zing of the spicy meat, and combined with a bit of plated avocado – KaPow, awesome.

Ingredients

  • 1 large zucchini (toss in food processor and slice it to shreds)
  • 2 large carrots (toss in food processor afterwards, no need to wash)
  • 1 lb Country Sausage (I bought mine from fresh market, but go as you like)
  • 1 medium sweet potato – cooked (I had extra from previous recipe)
  • 9 Eggs (large .. could have gone up to 12, but I ran out ..)
  • Spices – salt, pepper, paprika

Put it together

  1. Set over to 375 degrees
  2. In pan spread out meat as if it were dough – be sure to get it thin.  No need to crawl up the walls, and place in over for roughly 16-20 minutes.  (When finished take out and drain out the grease – I just tipped it out carefully)
  3. Shred the Zucchini and then place in cheese cloth to drain.  There is a surprising amount of liquid here, so make it disappear!  Drop carrots into food processor.
  4. Chop up the sweet potato (no skin)
  5. Mix up the eggs (I used an immersion blender b/c it was sitting there, and it rocked ..)
  6. Bring together the veggies and the eggs, season as you like, and then pour into the dish.
  7. Place into oven – and cook.  Mine went for about 50 minutes.  It is done when dead center is cooked.

Enjoy!  I reheated mine in the oven and it was good for many days afterwards.

Yum.
