What is a FRITTATA
How do you make a sweet potato frittata
Step 1: Chop the sweet potatoes and cook them slightly in the microwave.
Step 2: In an oven proof skillet cook the bacon and remove to a plate. In the same skillet add the slightly cooked sweet potatoes and shallots and cook until browned.
Step 3: Whisk together the eggs, cheese and seasoning and add to the sweet potatoes and shallots in the skillet. Partially cook the eggs for 1 minute and add bacon and goat cheese and place in the oven for about 3 minutes until the eggs are set. Sprinkle with chives and serve.
This is a particularly nice dish if you have folks who don’t love eggs, they are there but you might not even notice with the sweet potatoes, bacon and gruyere. So if you’re tired of omelets or quiche, think about making a frittata for a simple and quick healthy breakfast everyone will love.
