Chard and Caramelized Garlic Quittata with a Sweet Potato Crust

26 08 2018

 

You may ask, “What the heck is a quittata?” Well my husband just coined the name after I made this dish which was not quite a frittata nor a quiche but something in between. Either way, it was absolutely delicious. What really made it was the Maple Balsamic Caramelized Garlic. OMG!! And to top it  off, it was a really beautiful dish as well. This would be great for a brunch. I served it as part of a celebrate summer harvest feast. Who knows, quittatas could become trendy.

Ingredients:

4 sweet potatoes, about 2 – 21/2 pounds, peeled and cut into 1/4″ pieces

Olive oil
