Frittatas are one of my go-to weekend breakfast dishes when I’m feeling a little fancy. They’re also a great dish to serve for a brunch party (love those!) because you literally just throw the dish in the oven and then cut and serve – which means more time with your brunch guests!
But, on a regular old Sunday when I’m not having a brunch party, I like to throw together a Sweet Potato Feta Frittata and spend the tim e it’s baking sipping my mug of coffee and catching up on the blogs I follow. Lazy mornings are absolutely the best.
Frittatas are hard to mess up and endlessly customizable – throw some veggies in a cast iron skillet, dump in the egg mixture, and you’re good to bake. The key is that your veggies need to already be cooked before you throw your frittata in the oven. Here, I’ve used sweet potato, which are thinly sliced and quickly baked before the eggs are added. (I’m addicted to sweet potato, but you could use regular potatoes, if you prefer.) I’ve added Feta cheese and green onion – their salty and tangy flavours pair well with the sweetness of the sweet potato.
It’s the last day of November today guys! I can hardly believe it. Tomorrow, J will officially allow me to listen to Christmas carols, and I plan to blast them LOUD! I have already started writing my Christmas cards (yes I mail out holiday cards and I love it!) and made my first batch of Homemade Eggnog (link takes you to my other blog, the lovely kitchen). Let the Christmas season begin!
