Kale and Sweet Potato Frittata
with red pepper and pepita salad
Tender sweet potatoes and sauteed savory kale balance one another in this quick, weeknight-friendly frittata. Smarts: If making frittatas for more or less than 4 people, try making them in muffin tins (recipe makes 2 muffin-size frittatas per person). Mini frittatas freeze well too!

- Serve frittata warm out of the oven topped with a dollop of sour cream and with salad on the side.
Great and Toddler approved! Used baby spinach and baby kale and mixed in sour cream when whipping the eggs. Puffed up perfectly in the oven. Enough leftovers for breakfast. Delish!0 Helpful
made it with spinach instead of kale, added zucchini and red bell pepper and mixed the sour cream in with the eggs. yummy!0 Helpful
Really enjoyed the sweet potato/kale mix in the frittata, and salad was a good mix too. Omitted the maple syrup and vinegar from the dressing -- just used balsamic and olive oil. With a good balsamic, you don't need to sweeten it up.0 Helpful
Frittata was fantastic! I think better than the sweet potato and spinach one.0 Helpful
I only made the frittata. Very tasty! Made a bunch extra to freeze for breakfasts to bring with me to work. Note to future cooks: if you are making them in a muffin tin, do not overfill with egg. It puffs up and oozes everywhere!0 Helpful
