Ingredients

  • 1 pre-made refrigerated pie crust
  • 2 medium sweet potatoes , peeled and cut into bite-size cubes
  • 1/2 cup red onion coarsley chopped
  • 2 tablespoons light extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon fresh cracked pepper
  • 4 bacon slices , cooked and crumbled
  • 1/4 cup Italian parsley , coarsely chopped
  • 3-4 large eggs , room temperature, beaten
  • 1/4 cup Half &Half
  • 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary , finely chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 2 cups Gruyere cheese , finely shredded, divided

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Unwrap and lay room temperture pie crust into a deep 9-inch pie dish. I do not arrange the edges because I like the rustic look, but you can totally pinch and fold to make it look pretty. Pierce the bottom and sides several times with a fork. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until it is just barely starting to cook and brown. Remove and set aside.
  • Prepare sweet potatoes and onion by placing them in a large bowl and tossing with extra virgin olive oil and freshly cracked pepper. Spread in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes, or until potatoes are fork tender.
  • Combine crumbled bacon, chopped parsley, beaten eggs, half & half, chopped rosemary, fine sea salt and 1 1/2 cups finely shredded Gruyere cheese in a large mixing bowl, stirring well to combine.
  • Transfer sweet potato and red onion mixture to prepared pie crust. Arrange ingredients as easily as possible so you get a taste of everything in each in bite.
  • Pour egg mixture over sweet potatoes and red onion until just reaching the top of the pie crust.
  • Place into the oven and bake for 25-35 minutes, or until center is set. Top with remaining 1/2 cup Gruyere cheese while still warm. Serve immediately or refrigerate and re-warm at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.

Notes

Bacon is optional.
A deep dish pie plate is necessary.
If the edges of the pie crust are starting to brown, loosely place a sheet of aluminum foil over the top.
