Sweet Potato and Kale Frittata with Goat Cheese

Two fall produce favorites are paired here in a frittata that’s bursting with color, flavor, and texture. Crumbled goat cheese adds a creamy tang, but you could substitute any other type of grated or crumbled cheese.



Ingredient Line: 
1 medium sweet potato, peeled and cut into ½-inch pieces (12 oz.)
Ingredient Line: 
8 large eggs
Ingredient Line: 
1 Tbs. Dijon mustard, divided
Ingredient Line: 
1 tsp. apple cider vinegar
Ingredient Line: 
1 Tbs. olive oil
Ingredient Line: 
1 small onion, diced (1 cup)
Ingredient Line: 
4 large curly kale leaves, ribs removed, leaves torn into 2-inch pieces
Ingredient Line: 
½ cup crumbled goat cheese (2 oz.)


1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Place sweet potato pieces in medium microwave-safe bowl. Add 1/2 cup water, cover, and microwave on high power 5 minutes, or until tender. Drain.

2. Meanwhile, whisk together eggs, mustard, and vinegar; season with salt and pepper, if desired.

3. Coat large ovenproof nonstick skillet with cooking spray. Add oil, and place over medium-high heat. Add onion, and sauté 3 minutes, or until onion begins to soften. Add kale, and cook 2 minutes, or until kale is wilted but still bright green. Add sweet potato, and toss to blend, arranging vegetables over bottom of skillet.

4. Carefully pour eggs over top without displacing vegetables. Cook 3 minutes, or just until bottom of frittata is set.

5. Transfer skillet to oven. Bake 10 minutes, or until frittata is set in center.

6. Using heat-proof spatula, loosen frittata from skillet, and slide out onto platter. Sprinkle with cheese; let stand 1 to 2 minutes to soften cheese. Cut frittata into 4 wedges, and serve.

Comments on this Recipe

I wanted to like this, because I love all the ingredients, but the only flavor came from the goat cheese. On a positive note, it was quick and easy, much more so than the quiche I usually make.

Great recipe, and simple to make. A repeater.

They all look so good send me more

I loved this recipe. Great for a weekday dinner!

We love this Dish and very quick and easy to make. We serve it with roasted purple and red fingerling potatoes served with roasted red pepper sauce. Yum!


A delicious recipe. My three boys all devoured it, even my fussy eater. This is already a family favourite.

delicious! will try next time with goats cheese. so tasty.

Great for dinner and breakfast. Used leftover feta and spinach.

If I substitute egg whites for all or some of the 8 eggs will I be missing out on anything other than cholesterol? ie. flavor?

You can use feta

Ruby If you leave out the yolks which are good for you, you will leave out a lot of the protein!

Colorful but discovered it was bland. Needs garlic or something like salsa.

Why does it say divided beside the Dijon in the ingredients list?

Why is mustard divided in ingredients?

I substituted red Swiss chard for the kale and added a little minced garlic. I also added the goat cheese prior to putting in the oven. It was amazing!!

My husband will eat anything. Even if I think a recipe doesn't turn out good he still doesn't object. Tonight, after over 30 years of cooking for him, he actually said " eww" when he tasted this. I had to agree. It is an odd mix of flavors. But it did grow on us and was edible but I just wouldn't make it again.

This is my once every other week meal!! Even the kids love it, I add lots of minced Garlic & Cheddar on one side for them and Goat or gets on the other for my Huband and I ..... So good.

I have made this in the past and really like it. Has anyone tried freezing this frittata?

I was surprised at how bland this frittata was with all of the flavorful ingredients. If I make it again I will definitely bump up the seasoning. I also had a question about why the Dijon says divided, since it's only added once.

I'm not a big fan of kale, but thought subbing spinach might make it slimy, so I bought baby kale. That was perfect! Absolutely LOVE this frittata!
