Sharing is caring!

This Sweet Potato Salmon Frittata is a simple and delicious dinner any night of the week. A Frittata is one of those all-round versatile dishes.

Sweet Potato Salmon Frittata

Not an omelette, or a quiche, but somewhere in between and much easier. (Here’s a great explanation of the difference: What’s the Difference Between an Omelette and a Frittata?) Not only are the ingredient possibilities endless, but a frittata can be breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner. It’s equally delicious hot or cold, and a perfect take-along dish, either for a potluck or a lunch bag. The ingredient possibilities mean that it’s easy to please vegetarian, gluten-free, or dairy-free diets, as well.

Frittatas: Great For Using Leftovers

Frittatas are an ideal way to use leftovers, whether they are chicken, fish, sausage, ham, fresh or roasted veggies, or even pasta. Really just about anything is going to be delicious when baked in some eggs. This is one of my go-to weeknight dinners for when I’m feeling uninspired, or crunched for time. Leftover salmon is one of my favourite ingredients to use here, and the sweet potatoes are a perfect complement, along with fresh spinach.

So Many Ingredient Possibilities

If I had asparagus, it would have gone into this Sweet Potato Salmon Frittata in place of the other veggies for a classic spring combo. Some other ingredient combo ideas are cauliflower and mushroom, ham and cheese, chicken and broccoli, zucchini, grape tomato and basil, or roast potato and bacon. I really think I could just go on and on, but you get the picture, I’m sure. Let your imagination or your fridge ingredients decide for you.

If you use an ovenproof skillet, you can go from stovetop to oven with less cleanup. I happen to have these sweet little mini cast iron skillets, so I made individual frittatas and served them that way, too, for even less cleanup. This is my kind of meal, healthy, versatile, delicious, quick and easy, and to top it off, minimal cleanup. Can it get any better?

Eggs are so versatile, healthy, and delicious. Try these great egg recipes, too! Bacon & Egg Breakfast TacosBaked Huevos Rancheros (Rancher’s Eggs) or Make-Ahead Baked Breakfast Egg Cups

  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1/4 cup chopped parsley or dill

  • Bake in center of oven 15-20 minutes or until edges are pulling away from pan and middle is set.

It's important not to over beat the eggs, as incorporating too much air will cause the frittata to pouf up in the oven, then fall. which will flatten the dish and make it very dense.
The nutritional information for this recipe doesn't include the optional cheese.
