Sweet Potato Frittata – An Easy Dinner Recipe

I love sweet potatoes, but I don’t only enjoy them baked. Sweet potatoes are pretty versatile, which is why they’re so yummy in this sweet potato frittata recipe.

Sweet potatoes pack a big nutritional punch. They contain ample amounts of Vitamins A, B, C, and the mineral potassium. (We all need more potassium from our diets.)

Even though sweet potatoes have a sweet flavor, they’re actually lower on the glycemic index than regular white potatoes. That’s why I always look for new ways to get sweet potatoes into my family’s diet.

If you’ve already discovered the awesomeness of sweet potatoes you know why my family loves them. And, like I’ve already said, there are so many make sweet potatoes, but there’s nothing wrong with adding one more yummy sweet potato recipe to your repertoire.

So, here’s a new sweet potato recipe for you to try!

Sweet Potato Goat Cheese and Spinach Frittata Recipe

Sweet Potato Frittata Recipe Made Two Ways

When I first came up with this recipe, I wanted a recipe that made sweet potatoes the main part of the meal instead giving them side-dish status. I created the recipe to be made with baked, mashed sweet potatoes.

It’s completely delicious that way and turns a beautiful orange color because the sweet potato is distributed throughout the dish and part of every single bite.

And then one busy day sweet potato frittata was on the meal plan but I wasn’t able to get started on dinner as early as I’d planned. Life happens, right?

I needed to get the sweet potatoes cooked faster than the 40-45 minutes it takes to bake two large sweet potatoes. So, I diced the sweet potatoes and roasted them for about 25 minutes. Then, I added the roasted sweet potatoes to the frittata like normal.

The only difference was the color, which kept it’s eggy-yellow hue instead of becoming deep orange from the sweet potatoes. There was still sweet potato in every bite and the flavor was still a phenomenal balance of sweet and savory.

So, for this sweet potato frittata recipe I’ll give you the instructions for both ways of making it. You get to decide which one works better for you.

No matter which way I cook the sweet potatoes for this recipe I can make two thin, casserole-dish sized frittatas (13X9 casserole dish) OR two, thick pie-dish sized frittatas (8- or 9-inch pie dish).

This recipe feeds the whole family for dinner with leftovers for lunch the next day. The boys love it and I love that it’s filling and super-healthy.

Sweet Potato, Goat Cheese, and Spinach Frittata Recipe
