IMG_8430

When we think brunch, we think of hoping in the car and heading to a nearby restaurant, bottomless mimosas and delicious food. What’s not to like about that? Well, nothing really, except sometimes its fun to make it at home too!  Pour a round of mimosas and invite your family over for Sunday brunch.  Set the table outside (if weather permits) and enjoy each others company over a delicious home cooked breakfast, like this fabulous fritatta!

Ingredients:

  • 8-10 eggs
  • 1/2 cup of sweet potatoes, diced small
  • 1/2 package of Diestel Turkey Chorizo (or whole 30 compliant chorizo, about 1 cup cooked)
  • 1/4 red onion, diced small
  • 1/2 lime
  • 2 tbsp. fresh chopped cilantro, plus more for garnish
  • 2 cups greens (we use Organic Girl Super Greens)
  • 1 tbsp. of compliant cooking oil or ghee (we used coconut oil)
  • Compliant cooking spray

Method:

1.Whisk the eggs until fully combined and a little frothy. Season with a little salt and pepper. Add the juice of half of lime. Set Aside.

2. Heat a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. When hot, spray skillet all over with cooking spray (this will help your frittata come out clean later), then add 1 tbsp. of cooking oil or ghee and melt.

3. Now add your diced sweet potatoes, begin to saute for about 4 minutes. Season with a little salt and pepper.IMG_8408

4. Now add in your diced onions and the chorizo.  Continue to cook until chorizo is cooked through, about 4 more minutes.  The sweet potatoes should also be cooked through and tender at this time.IMG_8409

5. Reduce the heat to low. Add the greens until just wilted, about 2 minutes.

6. Shift all sauteed veggie/chorizo concoction until everything is evenly spread throughout the skillet.  Now pour your whisked eggs into the pan. Sprinkle the top with the cilantro.

7. Cover the skillet and cook until a light crust forms around the edge. This should happen in about 4-6 minutes.  (Meanwhile, turn your broiler on low). When the frittata has begun to pull away from the pan a bit, it’s ready to finish under the broiler.

8. Transfer the frittata under a broiler set to low. In approximately 3 to 5 minutes, the center of the frittata should set and the top turn a golden brown. Remove the frittata from the oven and gently press the center with your finger or the back of a spoon. If the eggs have set (meaning there are no liquidy pools of scrambled egg), your frittata is done.

9. Let the frittata rest, COVERED, for a minute or two after removing from the oven.  This makes it much easier to slice and serve your frittata.  Slice and serve!
