Make

  1. Heat oven according to directions on package for sweet potato fries.
  2. Spread sweet potato fries out on a sheet pan. Pull thyme leaves off sprigs and sprinkle over top. Bake according to package directions.
  3. While sweet potato fries cook, heat a non-stick frying pan or skillet over medium-high heat. Add first part of butter and then shallots. Saute until softened, ~1 minute.
  4. Add mushrooms and a pinch of salt. Saute until tender, 5 to 6 minutes.
  5. Add vinegar and spinach and stir until spinach is wilted, ~2 minutes. Push mushrooms and spinach to one side of the pan (or transfer to a plate if your pan is too small) and reduce heat to low-medium.
  6. Add second part of butter to pan. When melted, pour in whisked eggs and scramble over low heat until cooked to your liking.
  7. Crumble feta over eggs and stir in mushrooms and spinach. Season with some salt and pepper.
  8. Toast sandwich rolls.
  9. Top rolls with egg mixture and serve with sweet potato fries and your favorite dipping sauce (like ketchup) on the side. Enjoy!

Really liked the frittata, although I might use a little more bacon and a little less mushroom next time. I skipped the side because the frittata was enough.

We thought this would be boring but it was good! Ate it without the buns.

Fantastic flavor! I used a hickory smoked bacon that was Whole30 compliant from Whole Foods. I think it had a Paleo sticker on it. I would've loved the sandwich.... but the frittata was delish!!! Oh- I made it the night before and let it sit (raw eggs) in the fridge over night and baked it in the morning. This may have helped the flavors meld. FANTASTIC!

I never think I want a breakfast sandwich, but this was easy and light and warm and lovely.

Overall it was a hit. I added bacon to the sandwiches and served on a cinnamon swirl bagel. Also used a slice of sharp cheddar instead of the feta. It was a satisfying meal!

Frittata was good but totally changed the recipe. added heavy cream, more bacon, fresh thyme and tomatoes and did not put spinach or the vinegar in it! I LOVE frittatas because of how versatile it is! I made sweet potato fries and used herbs de Provence instead of thyme and they were good! I need to figure out how to make them crispier though! hated the avocado crema and i love avocados!
