Are you running out of breakfast ideas? I like to cook new things for breakfast, such as this Japanese omelette Tamagoyaki, for instance. This perfect sweet potato and goat cheese frittata will surely delight you. Frittata (from Italian fried) is a dish similar to an omelet but differs in the method of preparation.
After you cook your mix of eggs and vegetables in a pan for a few minutes, place the pan in an oven for a short time or until the eggs are nicely brown and set.
Breakfast, lunch, or dinner?
However, I see the biggest difference in the fact that you can eat this “Italian omelet” at any time of the day. It doesn’t even have to be hot, because it tastes just as good at room temperature. And of course, we all know the case, how we are always looking for something to bite in our kitchen. Frittata serves this purpose wonderfully.
But most importantly, this sweet potato and goat cheese frittata tastes really delicious. The nice taste of sweet potatoes and the mildly sour and intense touch of goat cheese is a unique combination that will surely pleasantly surprise you. I have to say that goat cheese is one of my favorite cheeses.
You can experiment with the frittata and combine any kind of ingredients. I often like to use anything I can find in my refrigerator. Also with this recipe, I had a red bell pepper and some baby spinach left, which perfectly complemented the sweet potatoes and goat cheese.
Frittata is therefore great to use leftovers. It is a very simple dish and does not require much time or skill. All you have to do is cook the ingredients in the pan for a while, add the eggs and shake the pan so that the eggs get between each piece of vegetable. Then just place it in an oven and wait.
Use good quality eggs for a frittata
Now the eggs. Of course, you can use any type of eggs, but excellent free-range eggs work perfectly with frittatas. If your eggs are large (no pun intended), use six eggs. However, if they have a smaller size, use even nine of them. Remember that we mix them with a lot of vegetables, which will eventually result in quite a large frittata.
On this blog, I will definitely show you other delicious recipes for different types of frittata in the future. However, do not hesitate to try new recipes. If you do not feel like a vegetarian version, use a meat product. Combine bacon or prosciutto with onions and you have an excellent base. Add some vegetables such as asparagus or broccoli. Use feta or mozzarella instead of goat cheese.
There really are thousands of delicious combinations. I think this sweet potato and goat cheese frittata is one of the best!Print
