This brunch dish is a super easy recipe to follow. Sweet potato is often overlooked but I think it works perfectly well with eggs, spices, cheese and spinach.

Filling and satisfying with every mouthful. The perfect way to start your day!

Baked Sweet Potato Frittata

When it comes to making brunch for the family, I don’t know about you, but a one-pan dish is often my “go-to” choice. It makes things super easy, you can present it to the table, and everyone can dig in. Plus, there is less washing up, which is a big tick for dad!

When I say it is easy, I am not joking. You use the same skillet to prepare your ingredients and then transfer them over to your prepared baking dish. That really is the hard part over.

I love the combination of the cheese, spinach, and eggs with the sweet potato, and the spices and herbs just elevate it. You first prepare the sweet potato and the red pepper with some herbs and spices. You then prepare your eggs separately and then finally cook the spinach or arugula, whichever you choose to do. Then the oven does the hard part for you.

The boys love it, and it is a great alternative during the weekend or holidays when you want to relax a little more.

Do I have to use Sweet Potato in this recipe?

While the recipe’s main star ingredient is sweet potato, you can use alternatives if you are looking for something different. I wouldn’t recommend using normal white potatoes as you do need the sweetness of flavor to balance out the other ingredients.

If you are looking for a low-carb alternative, then butternut squash would work very well. You could also add lots of other vegetables to this frittata recipe. Things like asparagus and zucchini would work well.

How should I store any leftovers?

If you do have any leftovers, then there are a couple of options you have for storing them. Firstly, let the sweet potato frittata cool completely. You can then store it in the refrigerator for 3-4 days in an airtight container.

You could also freeze any leftovers. Just make sure to add them to an airtight container or a sealed freezer bag. Defrost and reheat in the oven when you are ready to enjoy it.

This Baked Sweet Potato Frittata is perfect for brunch or as a quick mid-week meal. Filling and satisfying with every mouthful.


  • Non-stick cooking spray
  • 2 Tbsp of extra virgin olive oil, divided
  • 1 large sweet potato, peeled and diced
  • 1 medium red bell pepper, diced
  • 1⁄2 medium red onion, diced
  • 1⁄2 tsp of garlic powder
  • 1 tsp of dried basil
  • 1 tsp of dried parsley
  • Sea salt and black pepper, to taste
  • 6 large eggs
  • 3 Tablespoons of half & half
  • 1 cup of gouda cheese, shredded, divided
  • 2 cup of fresh arugula or spinach
  • Optional: Fresh parsley and basil, to serve


    1. Position the top oven rack in the center position and preheat the oven to 350°F. Spray a medium-sized baking dish with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.
    2. Heat one tablespoon of olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add sweet potato, red pepper, onion, garlic powder, basil, and parsley. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste, and stir to combine.
    3. Cook, occasionally stirring until the pepper and onion soften and the sweet potato develops a bit of color, approximately 5-6 minutes. Remove from heat and transfer to the prepared baking dish. Spread into a uniform layer and set aside.
    4. While the vegetables cook, whisk together the eggs and half & half in a large bowl. Add half the Gouda cheese and stir to combine. Set aside.
    5. Add the remaining olive oil to the same skillet over medium heat and toss in the arugula or spinach. Cook, stirring occasionally, just until the greens wilt, approximately 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat and spread evenly on top of the other vegetables in the baking dish.
    6. Pour the egg mixture on top and spread with a rubber spatula, if necessary, to cover the entire surface. Sprinkle remaining cheese on top and season with additional salt and black pepper, if desired.
    7. Place in preheated oven and bake until the egg is set and the top starts to turn golden brown, approximately 25-30 minutes. Remove from oven and cool slightly before slicing. Garnish with fresh herbs, if using, and serve immediately. Enjoy!


You can use a well-seasoned cast iron skillet from start to end with this recipe. However, an enamelled cast iron baking dish, such as the Le Creuset® shown in the picture makes for an excellent presentation.
