Baked Sweet Potato Frittata: This recipe can also be prepared from start to finish in a large, well-seasoned cast-iron skillet. However, an enamelled cast iron baking dish, such as the Le Creuset® version shown here, makes for a nice presentation for a traditional Sunday brunch.

Prep Time10 minsCook Time35 mins
 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil, divided
 1 large sweet potato, peeled and diced
 1 medium red capsicum, diced
 ½ medium red onion, diced
 ½ tsp garlic powder
 1 tsp dried basil
 1 tsp dried parsley
 1 pinch Sea salt and black pepper
 6 large eggs
 3 tbsp half & half (milk and cream)
 1 cup gouda cheese, shredded, divided
 2 cups fresh arugula or spinach
1

Position top oven rack in the centre position and pre-heat oven to 350°F. Spray a medium-sized baking dish with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.

2

Heat one tablespoon olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add sweet potato, red pepper, onion, garlic powder, basil, and parsley. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste, and stir to combine.

3

Cook, stirring occasionally until the pepper and onion soften and the sweet potato starts to develop a bit of colour, approximately 5-6 minutes. Remove from heat and transfer to the prepared baking dish. Spread into a uniform layer and set aside.

4

While the vegetables cook, whisk together the eggs and half & half in a large bowl. Add half the Gouda cheese and stir to combine. Set aside.

5

Add the remaining olive oil to the same skillet over medium heat and toss in the arugula or spinach. Cook, stirring occasionally, just until the greens wilt, approximately 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat and spread evenly on top of the other vegetables in the baking dish.

6

Pour the egg mixture on top and spread with a rubber spatula, if necessary, to cover the entire surface. Sprinkle remaining cheese on top and season with additional salt and black pepper, if desired.

7

Place in pre-heated oven and bake until the egg is set and the top starts to turn golden brown, approximately 25-30 minutes. Remove from oven and cool slightly before slicing. Garnish with fresh herbs, if using, and serve immediately. Enjoy!
