  2. Meanwhile, heat a medium non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Add bacon, cook for 3 minutes. Add shallots, cook for a further 2 minutes. Place corn on paper towels to remove excess moisture.
  3. Lightly spray a 20cm springform tin with oil and set aside. Lightly spray one sheet of pastry with oil. Place another sheet on top of it at a 90° angle and lightly spray, then the next sheet at 45° and lightly spray again. Layer remaining sheets of pastry in the same manner but in the opposite direction.
  4. Carefully ease pastry into prepared tin, folding the overhanging pastry into the side of the pan.
  5. Fill pastry shell with sweet potato, bacon, corn and feta. Whisk eggs and milk in a medium bowl, the season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Pour egg mixture over filling. Bake for 50 mins or until quiche is set and golden brown.
  6. Combine lettuce, sprouts, radish and carrot in a large bowl. Drizzle with dressing and toss to combine. Cut quiche into wedges and serve with salad.
