Trying to figure out what to make today for Breakfast? Lunch? Or Dinner? How about a Frittata! One of the easiest things to whip up when you’re in a quandary about what to make. It’s as simple as whisking a few eggs together, and gathering up some ingredients you have on hand. Combining them all together and cooking in a skillet on the stovetop (and maybe popping that skillet in the oven for a few minutes to brown the top).
This Sweet Potato and Kale Frittata pairs two seasonally fresh winter veggies with smooth tangy goat cheese for a savory healthy meal.
If you’ve been following this blog for a bit then you know I’m a big fan of goat cheese! It makes it’s way into many dishes I cook. Because it has a bold flavor you only need to use a small amount to add a subtle tang to any dish. If you’re not a fan of goat cheese, you can easily substitute feta or really any other type of grated or crumbled cheese.
I used baby kale in this recipe because I had a huge amount on hand (hello…green smoothies!) but you can also use curly kale leaves as well, or even spinach.

Sweet Potato and Kale Frittata with Goat Cheese
- 1 medium sweet potato peeled and cut into 1/2 inch pieces (12oz.)
- 8 large eggs
- 1 Tbs. Dijon mustard divided
- 1 tsp. apple cider vinegar
- 1 Tbs. olive oil
- 1 small onion diced (1 cup)
- 1 cup baby kale or 4 large curly kale leaves, ribs removed and leaves torn into 2 inch pieces
- ½ cup crumbled goat cheese 2 oz. (or feta)
- Preheat oven to 400F.
- In a medium microwave safe bowl, add sweet potato and 1/2 cup water. Cover and cook (on high power) until tender (approx. 5 min.) Drain.
- While sweet potato is cooking, whisk together in a medium bowl: eggs, mustard, vinegar and salt and pepper to taste.
- Spray a large ovenproof nonstick skillet with cooking spray. Over medium-high heat add oil. When oil is hot, add onion and cook until onion begins to soften (approx. 3 min.) Add kale and continue to cook until kale wilts but is still bright green. Add sweet potatoes and stir to blend all ingredients.
- Pour egg mixture carefully over vegetables. Cook until the bottom of the frittata is set (approx. 3 min.).
- Place the skillet in the oven and bake until the frittata is set in the center (approx. 10 min)
- Loosen the frittata from the pan with a heat-proof spatula, and carefully slide the frittata onto a plate or platter. Garnish with cheese and let set stand for a few minutes until cheese softens a bit. Cut into 4 wedges and serve.
