All You Need
- Sweet Potato - Sweet potatoes vary a lot in size. One large one or two small ones should be about right.
- Spice Mix - The “secret” ingredient that makes this frittata especially tasty is my Gluten Free Spice Mix. With it, you get fantastic flavour without measuring out a whole lot of spices each time.
How to Make It
Cook onion and garlic in coconut oil in an oven-safe skillet over medium heat.
Add the sweet potatoes. Turn the heat down, and cover it with a lid.
Add the spice mix and give it a stir.
Turn the heat back up to medium. Pour on the eggs. Cover and cook until they're beginning to set around the edges.
Finish it off under the broiler.
Recipe FAQ's and Tips
No problem! I don't have a regular oven in my RV. Just turn the heat down at the end, and keep your frittata tightly covered until the eggs are done on top.
I've made this frittata in both a heavy stainless steel pan and a cast iron skillet. I prefer the cast iron skillet, though. It holds the heat well and cooks evenly.
If you scrub your sweet potatoes really well, you don't need to peel them. It's really a matter of personal preference. I usually like to peel mine.
Sweet potatoes are full of fibre, healthy carbs, and several vitamins and minerals, so they are great for breakfast.
A quiche has a crust and is more pie-like than a frittata. Think of a frittata as a crustless quiche. They often have similar ingredients.

Sweet potato and eggs is a great combo! I also love adding some kale for a bit of green.
