Paleo Sweet Potato Spinach Frittata

For the month of April, J and I are challenging ourselves to eat paleo. That means: no grains, no dairy, and no sugar. Eggs and clarified butter are okay – so we’ve been eating eggs for breakfast every.single.day.

We’re getting creative in the ways we eat our eggs – we’ve had Ham and Egg Cups, Fluffy Scrambled Eggs, fried eggs, poached eggs, and fritattas.

I love fritattas because there are always leftovers to heat up the next day for breakfast. Two breakfasts for the price of one!

For this fritatta I’ve used sweet potatoes (which are paleo-friendly – regular potatoes are not) and spinach. I’ve also thrown in some thin slices of ham, which could be replaced by bacon for even more deliciousness 😉

Frittatas make a great weekend breakfast, since they take a little while to create – which comes together nicely while you sip a cup of steaming coffee and catch up on your blog reader (just me?!). This time, I threw this Sweet Potato and Spinach Fritatta together on a week night and then refrigerated it to eat for breakfast the next day – workday hack 😉
