Blue Cheese and Sweet Potato Frittata

By | October 18, 2016

I’ve only recently discovered frittatas, I made my first one a few months ago. I love them! Like the good old omelette, you can add whatever you can find in the fridge, it’s a brilliant day before shopping meal you can do with leftover bits and bobs, but still really filling and easy. This recipe uses sweet potatoes, but you can, of course, use white potatoes. Some other favourite fillings of mine are bacon, all the cheeses, mushrooms, peppers, and sausage. And cheese.

You will need:ingredients for frittata

  • 1 Medium sweet potato
  • 1 Red onion
  • 4 Eggs
  • 100g Blue cheese
  • Cooking oil

I’m going to say this serves 2…but I ate it all on my own. If you want more, just add more!

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees, prick the sweet potato with a fork and bake for about 40 minutes, until it’s really nice and soft. Then cut it open and leave to cool a little.

Fry the onions for a few minutes until they’ve softened, then set to one side. Whisk the eggs, crumble in the blue cheese, add the mushroom. Then scoop out the middle of the potatoes and add to the egg mixture, mix it all together really well.

Fry the mixture in a lightly oiled pan for a few minutes on each side, just so the outside is cooked. You can do this all as one big frittata but I find it easier to separate the mixture into 2 patties, if I don’t it just breaks up as I try to turn it and I end up with potato scrambled eggs.

Once the outside is browned, put them on a lightly oiled (I use fry light olive oil spray) baking tray and bake in the oven for 10 minutes.

I serve with salad if I’m being good, or I just sit and eat it all on its own if I’m not.

    sounds really nice do you put any seasoning in them

    • donna

      I don’t. Hunky husband puts salt and pepper in everything…you also put salt in everything, so yes!

  • I’ve never made a frittata before before but this sounds really yummy. Blue cheese and sweet potato is an interesting combination. #foodiefriday

    • donna

      It’s really nice, not as strong a flavour as you’d expect

  • I feel like I live off eggs for lunch at the moment so this will help me mix it up! And anything with blue cheese is good, right? #foodiefriday

    • donna

      I go through phases with eggs, I’ll have a month when I eat 1000s, then suddenly I’ll have 6 for weeks and end up throwing them away!

  • You had me at blue cheese…. nom nom nom!
