Tasty Tuesdays: Sweet Potato Frittata

For Tasty Tuesdays this week, I present to you what has got to be the easiest recipe ever. And it's delicious sweet potato, too. I have adapted this recipe from this original one, here. You will need 3 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and sliced thinly, one bunch of spring onions (chop the white and light green parts only), 2 Tbs butter or ghee, grated Gruyère cheese, 6 eggs, 2 Tbs milk.

Melt 1 Tbs of butter or ghee in a big oven proof pan or dish. Add the sweet potato in several layers. Sautée them and gradually add the spring onion. Cook both until just soft, season generously with salt and pepper, and remove from the pan. Whisk the eggs with the milk.

Melt the 2nd Tbs of butter or ghee in the pan, making sure that you coat the sides, too. Add the potato/ spring onion mixture back to the pan, then immediately add the egg. Move the pan left to right to ensure that the egg mixture runs into the areas between the potato slices. Let it cook until the egg is just set, then transfer under the broiler.

Cook the frittata under the broiler until the egg is set, then sprinkle (as much) cheese (as you like) on top and let it brown. Voilà!

I personally thought the frittata made for a light vegetarian dinner that didn't need anything to go with it. But you could always serve it as a side dish or bring it to a party or brunch and make your friends very happy!

I hope you like it.
