Roasted Sweet Potato Kale Frittata


Add this sweet potato kale frittata to your weekly menu for a quick and easy healthy meal that can be whipped up in less than 35 minutes and served for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

Oftentimes I find that people tend to overcomplicate eating healthy thinking that they have to slave away in the kitchen, cooking up elaborate meals each day in order to eat nutritiously.

While I’m certainly a huge advocate of cooking and eating more at home, I’m also a big fan of keeping things simple.

Eggs for Dinner

One of my go-to quick and easy meals for busy nights are egg-based because even when the fridge is getting quite bare we usually have a few eggs on hand.

There are a ton of different things you can make with eggs (like easy shakshuka), but we love making frittatas. Not only do they cook up super fast, but you can toss just about any vegetable you want into the mix.

The sweet potato kale frittata I’m sharing today is a fun one! It was actually inspired by this roasted sweet potato and kale salad that I absolutely love.

The combo of red onion, roasted sweet potatoes, dark leafy kale and fresh thyme is delicious and I knew it would taste so good baked into a frittata with creamy goat cheese.

Sweet Potato Kale Frittata Ingredients

Here’s what you’ll need for this easy frittata:

  • kale – any type of kale works! Just make sure you wash and de-stem the kale prior to chopping.
  • sweet potatoes – if you want a shortcut you can buy pre-chopped potatoes.
  • red onion and garlic clove – when in doubt, add onion and garlic! I love the savory flavor profile it brings to the dish.
  • eggs – can’t make a frittata without eggs! We often get local eggs, but at the store I look for organic, pasture-raised eggs.
  • fresh thyme – I love adding fresh herbs to egg bakes! If you’re in a pinch, you can also use dried herbs for added flavor.
  • goat cheese – adds a delicious creamy texture, but this can be omitted to make the frittata dairy-free.
  • avocado or oil – just a little bit for roasting the sweet potato.
  • sea salt – to bring the entire dish together!

What Pan to Use for a Frittata?

Cast-iron skillets are great for baking frittatas (and lots of other things), but if you don’t have one, you can use any oven-safe skillet. Just note that if you use an oven-safe, stainless steel skillet, you’ll need to add extra oil to grease the pan to prevent sticking.

How to Serve Sweet Potato Kale Frittata

This frittata is delicious served warm, but you can definitely save the leftovers and eat it cold or reheated the next day. I know some folks are weird about cold eggs, but Isaac and I actually loved eating it cold for breakfast the morning after we had it for dinner. The flavors are just so good!

How to Store Leftover Frittata

I love making a frittata in advance or as a meal train recipe. It stores and reheats beautifully! After cooking, allow the frittata to cool. After cooling, add to an airtight container and store in the refrigerator for up to five days.

      FANTASTIC – just what I needed on a low-energy morning (recovering from illness, dirty dishes in the sink)! Subbed-in items on hand – feta (mixed with eggs, ’cause I hate it browned) & yellow onion, plus a little bacon – delicious! And yer right about the *hot sauce on top (*salsa, for non-Texans [ha-ha!]): adds a perfect zing to an already great dish. ALSO: I love yer site – esp. appreciate jump-to-recipe button & graphics-to-text ratio; and found other yummy-lookin’ recipes I’m ready to try! Thanks so much, Brittany – and best to you & yours.

      Question: if I were to make this, how long will it keep in the fridge? I live alone so I would l would want to eat it over the span of 4 mornings. Would that work?

      Thanks in advance!

        Hey Tracy, yes – that should be just fine! This should last about 5 days in the fridge if stored in an air-tight container. 🙂
