So my hubby's away on a business related trip for a while and I am cooking for one...Sad day! It turns out there is a huge difference between cooking for one as opposed to two; especially when the other person is a very active young man!
I decided to make a frittata for breakfast this morning and ended up eating it for the whole day! It was a spur of the moment thing, but it ended up turning out really well and I wanted to share it with you.
- 1 small sweet potato, diced finely
- 2 preservative-free sausages, diced
- 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- 8 eggs
- 1 cup of chopped greens
- salt and garlic powder to taste
- 1/4 cup smoked Gouda cheese, grated (optional)
- Preheat the oven to 420 degrees.
- Place the sweet potato chunks, sausage, and oil into a cast iron skillet and bake for 20 minutes or so until the sweet potatoes are soft.
- In the meantime, beat the eggs together and add the seasonings.
- Place the skillet onto medium heat on the stovetop, dump in the greens and pour in the eggs.
- Cook until the sides of the frittata are set and then sprinkle the cheese on top and place back into the oven and cook for an additional 20 minutes or until the center barely giggles when moved.
- Cool for at least 10 minutes before serving. You can cut and serve like a pie right out of the pan, or attempt to flip the frittata onto a plate and serve (good luck!).
