Prep Time :10 minutes
Cook Time :1 hour
Refrigeration time :20 minutes
Total Time :1 hour 30 minutes
Servings: 6


  • 9" tart/quiche pan



  • 7 ounces/200 grams soft butter
  • 2 cups/280 grams flour
  • 1 large egg
  • 3-4 tablespoons milk


  • 2 sweet potatoes, cut into rounds/cubes
  • 1 red onion, quartered
  • Goat cheese or any other cheese of your choice

Royal sauce:

  • 1 cup/250 milliliters heavy whipping cream
  • 2 eggs
  • Heaping tablespoon of sour cream
  • ½ teaspoon coarse salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg


  • In a stand mixer bowl or food processor, combine the flour, butter, salt, and black pepper. Process until the dough reaches a coarse crumb texture. Add the egg and milk, and continue mixing until the dough is fully combined. Transfer the dough to a work surface. Wrap it in plastic wrap and refrigerate it for 20 minutes.
  • Season the sweet potatoes and onion with salt, black pepper, and a touch of garlic powder. Roast them in a preheated oven at 355°F (180°C) until they are golden and tender. Let them cool for about 20 minutes.
  • Roll out the dough on a sheet of baking paper to a thickness of 1/2 cm (about 1/4 inch) and line a tart pan with it. Spread the roasted sweet potatoes and onions evenly inside the tart crust. Add the goat cheese on top.
  • In a small bowl, prepare the Royal Sauce by whisking together the sweet cream, eggs, and spices until the mixture is smooth and free of lumps. Pour it over the filling. Sprinkle pine nuts and almonds on top for decoration.
  • Preheat the oven to 390°F (200°C). Lower the temperature to 355°F (180°C) and place the quiche on the lower rack (not the lowest). Bake for about 35-40 minutes, until the edges of the crust are golden and the tart is sufficiently browned. Allow the tart to cool thoroughly before serving. Enjoy!

Is sweet potato quiche served hot or cold?

The quiche can be enjoyed either hot or cold, offering distinct culinary experiences. Freshly baked, it boasts a comforting warmth that enhances the creamy filling and crust. Alternatively, serving it cold allows flavors to meld, resulting in a refreshing and portable option. Whether relishing the cozy savoriness of a warm slice or savoring the harmonized tastes of a chilled serving, the choice between hot and cold quiche depends on the desired dining sensation.

Is it suitable for vegetarians?

Yes, this quiche is entirely suitable for vegetarians. It features a delectable combination of sweet potatoes, onions, and goat cheese as its main ingredients, offering a hearty and flavorful option for those who prefer a meat-free diet.

Can I freeze leftovers?

Certainly, you can freeze any leftover quiche. Wrap individual slices tightly in plastic wrap or aluminum foil, then store them in an airtight container or freezer bag. When reheating, allow slices to thaw in the refrigerator overnight before warming them in the oven. While the texture might slightly change upon reheating, this method is a great way to enjoy your quiche at a later time and minimize food waste.
