Foodie Friday - Frittata!

Happy Foodie Friday!! Thanks, as always, to Gollum's sponsored Foodie Friday. If you haven't yet had the opportunity to visit Michael's (Gollum) website, Designs by Gollum, please do. You will be amazed at her talent for design and humor. Thank you Michael for hosting. What fun!

I've been sick all week. Though I've managed to come up with quick and easy meals for dinner most nights, I was still pressed to come up with another easy meal for tonight. Ann of Thibeault's Table made a frittata one day this week which inspired me to make one for dinner. I love potato and onion frittatas, but I only had sweet potatoes in the bin. Well... I was up for an experiment. So I sliced some sweet potato pretty thin and started sauteeing them. I added in some sliced onion til they were soft and sweet, then poured in the eggs. Once the eggs were set up, I put the pan under the broiler for about 5 minutes. So good! Much more flavor than a white potato. I will definitely do that again!

I love fritattas but hadn't thought to add sweet potatoes. I will try this. I hope you feel better soon!

I love frittatas. During Farmer's market season it is our Saturday breakfast of choice made from ingredients brought home from the market. However, I've never tried sweet potatoes (which we adore) -- will have to try that next time.

Hi Lori and it's so nice to meet you! I'm sorry to hear you've been sick but you managed to put together a fantastic looking frittata.
Just saw your a transplanted Texan! Oh, we do love New York so! I hope you'll come back and see me sometimes.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Lori, this sounds absolutely delicious! SO sorry you've been sick all week. Hope you're feeling much better soon. Those sweet potatoes should help. My naturopath says they are wonderful for you. I should quit eating icing and more of those! ;-)

Happy Foodie Friday...

XO,

Sheila :-)

Hi Lori...I hope you feel better soon!
I know Ann, Monique, Mari etc from CF and another blog we were all involved in.
I would never think to use sweet potatoes...so you had an accidental invention!
Thanks for the visit to my blog..I am in NY, you used to live here or NJ?
I will try the sweet potatoes, I know they are better for you than white.
Get well!

This looks really tasty! My husband is a huge fan of sweet potatoes so I will have to try this. I have roasted them in the oven with butter, brown sugar and cinnomen but never tried them like you suggested! I will now!

Blessings to you!
