      1/2   c            Milk
    4                    Eggs
      1/2   lb           Cream cheese
    1       d            Nutmeg
    1       d            Salt
    1                    Quiche shell,

   Start some salted water boiling.  Preheat oven to 375
   degrees F.  Peel and grate the sweet potatoes.  Grate
   carrots.  Put these vegetables into an empty saucepan.
   Pour the boiling water over the saucepan full of
   vegetables and bring to a boil. Cook five minutes;
   drain.
   
   Wash cranberries and pick out the ones that are soft
   or blemished.  Put the cranberries in an enameled pot
   with the sugar and cook them, covered, over low heat
   for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove the lid
   and cook for five minutes more, stirring almost
   constantly.
   
   Add cooked drained potato/carrot mixture to
   cranberries and cook for 3 to 4 minutes more, stirring
   constantly.
   
   Beat together the milk, eggs, cream cheese, a little
   nutmeg and a dash of salt.  Stir in the cooked
   vegetable mixture and pour this filling carefully into
   the prepared shell.  Bake at 375 degrees F. for 40
   minutes or until the top is golden and firm. Serve.
   
   NOTES:
   
   *  Sweet potatoes, carrots and cranberries in cream
   cheese quiche -- This recipe has become a real holiday
   favorite in our family.  It is originally from “The
   Vegetarian Epicure, Book Two” by Anna Thomas.  It is
   sweeter than most quiches, but not as sweet as most
   pies, and can be eaten either as a side dish, or as
   dessert. We usually eat it with the turkey because no
   one wants to wait until dessert time!
