Ingredients

Units Scale

Base

  • 1 large sweet potato – try to get one with a nice even long shape, easier to work with.

Filling

  • 1 teaspoon VOO
  • 1 thinly sliced and chopped onion
  • 2 bunches of kale, stems removed and broken into small bite-size pieces
  • 200ml cream

  • 1 cup bacon bits (3/4 and 1/4 cup)
  • 100g crumbled feta cheese

Instructions

Base

  1. Preheat the oven to 350F
  2. Peel and slice sweet potato. Slice in even slices, I used a mandolin slicer, it’s perfect for this job.
  3. Coat a pie dish with cooking spray, then fill the bottom with a double layer of sweet potatoes.
  4. Place them in such a way that they do not overlap, but cover the entire bottom of your dish.
  5. Cut some of the sweet potato rounds in half and fill up a double layer around the edges of the dish.
  6. Once the entire dish is filled, coat the sweet potato liberally with cooking spray.
  7. Bake for 20 minutes.
  8. Take out and set aside.

Filling:

  1. Add oil and onion and saute for 3 minutes in a pan over medium heat.
  2. Add kale and saute for another 3 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
  3. Combine cream, pepper, red pepper, and 4 eggs + 2 yolks in a bowl; stir and mix with a whisk.
  4. Add 3/4 cup bacon bits and mix.
  5. Arrange kale mixture in “crust”.
  6. Whip the egg whites till stiff, fold them into the egg mixture, and pour over the kale.
  7. Sprinkle with feta and remaining bacon bits.
  8. Bake at 375C for 30 minutes, then turn off the oven and leave for another 5 minutes in the cooling oven.
  9. Let stand for 5 minutes, slice, and serve.
