Whilst an epic “supermoon”, the closest full moon to hang over star gazers again until 2034, climbed out of the dusk last evening, I was slicing wedges of Cooking Light’s, Sweet Potato Crust Quiche.

Remember childhood toy commercials, where cool kids played with over-the-top games and amazing toys which never mal-functioned on the tube-- only to fail, break or not work out too well for real?

Oh, that Easy-Bake Oven haunts me yet!

A similar rush to letdown clutched me when I balked at this pie shaped casserole, which isn’t technically a quiche and doesn’t contain sweet potatoes, but bright orange sweet yams really.

I was never meant for toys; tools, kitchen tools, especially the mandoline, wiped out the memory of a mid-century doll-size pink wringer washing machine.  What a mess.

Begin by coating a pie dish with cooking spray. Carefully, whoosh a pared sweet potato (yam) using a mandoline slicer or sharp knife.

Place the slices in concentric circles; spray again

(I delivered a sprinkle of kosher salt as well) and partially bake.

Meanwhile, sauté the onion and spinach filling (add a healthy bit of fresh nutmeg to the spinach).

Pour the custard over the filling and top with feta.

Bake and let stand for a few minutes to set. Viola—just like the cool kids on the tube.
