Sweet Potato Spinach Frittata

Sweet Potato Spinach Frittata
  • Sumo

I had left over sweet potatoes and left over spinach and I always have some bacon around, so it was pretty easy to throw this frittata together. I kind of think of frittatas as lazyย omelettesย  Just put all your ingredients in a pan together and stick it in the oven. You can put absolutely anything you want in your frittata.

My lazy omelette frittata


  • 1 cup of spinach (cooked and chopped)
  • 1 thinly sliced sweet potato
  • 6 eggs
  • 6 slices of cooked bacon
  • salt and pepper to taste

What to do

Preheat your oven to 180 C (350F). Grease your pie pan or casserole dish with bacon grease or fat of your choice. Cover the bottom of your dish with a layer of potatoes. Cover your potatoes with some crumbled bacon and some spinach. Add another layer of potatoes and continue layering. Whisk your eggs together in a mixing bowl and add salt and pepper to taste. Pour your egg mixture over your layered dish. Bake in your preheated oven for 30 minutes.

  1. This looks so good! I love frittatas, but this on looks extra special. I love the idea of layering the potatoes on the bottom like that, will have to try it out! thanks!

  2. This looks delicious and easy. I have some CSA sweet potatoes and spinach, so I plan to make it this week.

    I realize this is an short and easy recipe, but I wish I could print it, along with other receipes on your blog. Let me know if I overlooked this feature.

    Thanks, Julie

    • Hi Julie,
      Thanks for stopping by. I think, at the moment, the only way to print is to just print the whole page. Other people have also requested a print feature but I’m not sure if that will work on the template we are currently using. We will be looking into it ๐Ÿ™‚

      • You can highlight the area you want to print and then hit Ctrl and P at the same time. When the printer box comes up, select “Selected”

        • Wow! That works just great – didn’t know you could do that. Better choice for me than the “Print This Post” as I only needed one photo. Thanks for passing this tip on!

    • I have just printed this by simply hitting the PRINT THIS POST under the photo. Does look good enough to enjoy this weekend! Cheers!

      • Hi Ginette,
        I hope it turns out good for you. Have a lovely weekend ๐Ÿ™‚

    • The way I print most recipes I want to keep is to highlight only the parts I want and then when I open my print dialogue box I choose “Selection” under Page Range. Saves paper and you only print what you want. Hope that helps.

  3. Can this be frozen? There are only two of us and I am sure we would not eat all of it but it would be wonderful to make the entire recipe and have some to freeze ๐Ÿ™‚

    • There are only two of us at my house, too BUT we never have any left to freeze ๐Ÿ™‚ We eat half for breakfast and save the other half in the fridge for lunch or breakfast the following day. I don’t see why it wouldn’t freeze though since things like frozen quiche are available in stores.

  4. Is the sweet potato cooked or raw? I am on GAPS so can’t have sweet potato but think I could sub butternut squash with similar results.

    • The sweet potato goes in raw but cooks in the oven because it’s sliced so thin. I think butternut squash would be delicious! Enjoy!

  5. This dish looks like it has cheese in it??? I don’t see cheese in the ingredient list. I think I will add some when I make it.
    Can’t wait to try it.

    • Hi Lorine,
      I don’t eat much dairy but my husband does. He grated a little bit of fresh Parmesan over his half before baking. Hope you enjoy it!

  6. This looks amazing! I love simple recipes that help us mix up our breakfasts. Or lunch. Or dinner! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • I love frittatas because you can throw just about anything into them and they taste delicious ๐Ÿ™‚ And like you said…perfect for breakfast, lunch or dinner!

  7. I just made this and it looks nothing like the picture. I followed the directions exactly. The pic looks like it has a flaky crust?? I’m a little disappointed ๐Ÿ™

    • Christina,
      I’m sorry it didn’t end up looking like the picture. Did it taste good? Nope, no flaky crust—it was photographed on my dining room table after making it just like the instructions I wrote in the recipe. I will say that this particular one turned very beautiful and so did the pictures (the light was perfect). I have made it since then and had it turn out not as pretty (but still yummy).

  8. Are the sweet potatoes cooked in advance or put in the dish raw?

    • Hi Kelle,
      I sliced mine really thin and used them raw. If you slice them a bit thicker, you might need to steam them or microwave them a bit first.

    • Thank you for asking this…I am about to make this and was wondering too! I’m going to use. My mandolin slicer to slice the potatoes extra thin!

      Also I don’t know if this is a WordPress blog or not, but there’s a great recipe plugin you can get which makes it very easy for readers to print the recipe…it may be worth checking into.

      • Thanks Robin. I installed the ziplist recipe plugin several months ago. All of my more recent posts are very easy to print from now. This is one of my really old posts and I just haven’t gotten around to going back and reformatting the old ones. It’s on my never-ending to-d0-list ๐Ÿ˜‰

  9. This was delicious. I think next time I will throw in some mushrooms. I sautรฉed onions and garlic with the spinache. It made it very flovorful

    • Hi Amy,
      I’m glad it worked out for you and that you enjoyed it. Frittata’s are so versatile, you can add anything to them and they always turn out delicious. If I have a small amount of leftovers from dinner and it’s not enough to make a meal out of, I just add eggs and turn it into a frittata ๐Ÿ™‚
