Curried Sweet Potato Frittata

11 Jan

Breakfast for dinner. I love that this has become a thing. I remember my dad making pancakes for dinner quite often when we were younger – nothing like a plate of flapjacks covered in syrup for your supper!

Now that I’m an adult, I know that sweets for dinner isn’t exactly the best idea. But that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a breakfast dish come 5 pm! This frittata concentrates the flavors of a curry right into a pan of eggs. Sweet Potato and onion keep it simple and all the warming spices really elevate this to the next level. Cook for a while on the stove top, then throw it under the broiler for a few minutes to finish it off and give it a nice browned crust.

Curried Sweet Potato Frittata
Serves 3

  • 1 sweet potato
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 onion, sliced thin
  • 6 eggs
  • 6 tbsp milk
  • 1 tbsp curry powder
  • 1 tbsp turmeric
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • Pinch of cayenne pepper
  • Salt & pepper, to taste

Turn on your oven’s broiler.

Cook the sweet potato in the microwave for about 6 or 7 minutes. Peel and chop into thin pieces.

Heat coconut oil in a large oven-safe skillet. Cook onion over medium-high until slightly charred. Add in the sweet potato and keep cooking until tender.

Whisk together eggs, milk, and spices in a bowl. Spread the potato and onion mixture evenly over the bottom of the skillet and pour in the eggs.

Turn the heat down to medium, cover with a lid, and let cook 8-10 minutes.

Once the sides and bottom of the frittata have set, remove the lid and transfer the skillet to the broiler. Broil for 2-3 minutes until the surface sets and begins to brown. Carefully remove from the broiler (use hot mitts!!) and let cool 5 minutes before slicing into 6 wedges.

This will serve 3 people as a main dish, or 4 people when accompanied by a salad or other side.
