Sweet Potato and Leek Frittata


  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil (EVOO)

  • 2 large sweet potatoes, cut in half and thinly sliced

  • 2 medium leeks, thinly sliced

  • 4 cloves garlic, finely chopped or grated

  • 12 extra large eggs

  • 1/3 cup milk or half-and-half (eyeball it)

  • A splash of hot sauce

  • Salt and ground black pepper

  • 1/2 cup shredded white sharp cheddar cheese

  • 1/2 cup flat leaf parsley leaves (a couple of handfuls), chopped


Pre-heat the oven to 400°F. Heat a 12-inch, nonstick, ovensafe skillet over medium-high heat. Add the EVOO, potatoes, leeks and garlic and cook until the veggies are tender, 6-7 minutes. Beat the eggs together with the half-and-half, a splash of hot sauce, some salt and pepper. Pour the eggs in the skillet over the filling. Using a spatula, raise the cooked egg off the bottom of the pan, allowing more of the still-liquid eggs to settle on the bottom of the pan.

When the frittata has set, sprinkle the top with cheese and transfer to the oven. Cook for 10-12 minutes until the top is deep golden brown. Remove and let stand for 5 minutes. Garnish with parsley, cut into wedges and serve.
