My family LOVED this meal! We will make again for sure.
I’ve never made a frittata before, but now I have! It’s so tasty! The pan I had made it too thin, so I made a quick decision and transferred it to a non-stick bread pan that I had. It turned out the perfect thickness! I love how Cooksmarts has taught me to think and improvise! The beets and potatoes took me a long time to make, so next time I’ll probably just skip them. They’re delicious but good to make on a weekend instead.
My husband commented that it was his new favorite salad. It was just as good or even better than what you can get in a restaurant! It's a new favorite recipe!
Was not expecting to like this with kale and cold potatoes, but the firmness of the kale went very well with the softness of the sweet potatoes and goat cheese. Yum! Skipped the beets.
I loved this frittata. I used pre-chopped kale in a bag, so it actually still had some stems, but it gave the frittata some extra texture that I really liked. I couldn't find goat cheese at my local, so I used the feta, and it was amazing. I skipped the side because I hate beets and I'm not a real fan of sweet potatoes either.
Loved the combination of flavors, for an interesting salad! Took a while because of the beets especially — next time I’ll peel & cut the beets before roasting.
