Recipe & Video: Sweet Potato & Goat Cheese Frittata

Posted on October 2, 2018 by Henry Ford Health Staff

Making an egg dish, like a frittata, is a great option for a Sunday brunch or a quick meatless Monday dinner. If you’ve never made a frittata, it’s incredibly easy — if you can scramble an egg and turn on the oven, you can handle it. It also allows you get creative with the ingredients in your fridge and is the perfect versatile canvas for leftover vegetables or fresh herbs.

In this recipe, we feature delicious sweet potatoes and tomatoes, which are both packed with vitamins and nutrients. Substituting some whole eggs for egg whites lowers the calorie count but still provides protein. Whipping them beforehand keeps the frittata light and fluffy. (Admittedly, the technique of separating eggs and whipping them requires slightly more work than just scrambling eggs but it’s still very manageable! And worth the extra effort.) Finally, we top it with a bit of goat cheese — distinct, tangy-flavored cheeses like this allow you to use a smaller amount but still provide big flavor and impact to your dish.
