Frittata Creation

It seems like it’s hard to make time to grocery shop lately. I think that cold weather is the culprit. It has been unseasonable cold in New England this December– so cold that all I want to do when I get home from work is bundle up and hunker down for the night.

As a result of my daily hunkering ( and lack of grocery shopping), I’ve been concocting a lot of strange meals this week. Including a frittata creation which we made out of veggies we just happened to have lying around.

Sweet Potato, Kale & Bacon Frittata


2 large leaves of curly kale

1/2 sweet onion, diced

4 small sweet potatoes

6 strips bacon

10 eggs

3/4 cup coconut milk

salt & pepper

I started by baking my sweet potatoes in the microwave. If I had more time, I would have roasted them in the over at 400 for 20 minutes. When the potatoes were done baking, I cubed them and set them aside.

Then, I fried up the bacon.

While the bacon was frying, I diced my onion.

Once the bacon was finished, I poured off most of the fat and sauteed the onions and kale in the pan until the onions were a little brown and the kale was a little wilty.

While the veggies were cooking, I beat the eggs and coconut milk in a medium sized mixing bowl.

Then I heaped all of the vegetables and bacon into a glass baking dish (9×13″) that was greased with olive oil. I poured the egg mixture over the top and stirred to make sure everything was covered. I baked the creation at 400 degrees for 45-50 minutes.

What emerged from the oven was a dish full of dense, eggy, sweet potato-kaley goodness!


I love eating breakfast for dinner! This frittata was a great, pretty easy way to have breakfast for dinner while also incorporating some vegetables and, of course, the all-important bacon.

Have you ever made a frittata creation? What kinds of veggies did you use?

    This looks like just what I need for our “Breakfast for Dinner” Christmas Eve gathering. There will be lots of bagels, cream cheese, pancakes, waffles…I need to throw something into the mix to make sure I’m able to make good and happy choices – and still appeal to all the others who aren’t joining me in my new lifestyle!

      Hi Julie! I’m thinking that it will serve 4 to 6 people depending on the size of your dish. I hope you enjoy it!

        Thanks so much! It was a big hit last night! We added yellow squash to it as well and it was fantastic.
