As fun as the holidays can be, they also come with a lot of stress. From picking out the perfect present to decorating the house for guests, this time of year can take a lot of brain power. One area that shouldn’t be stressful is breakfast. Let the afternoons be filled with family activities and dinner spent cooking family favorite recipes, but treat yourself to a slow morning with a cup of coffee and a slice of this sweet potato frittata. After all, it takes less than 30 minutes to make and will start your day off on a healthy, yet flavorful note.
What you’ll need
As mentioned above, there are just 5 main ingredients, not counting the salt, pepper and garlic powder.

How to Shred the Sweet Potato
The most involved part of this recipe is shredding the sweet potato. I made these up in the mountains where a cheese grater was my only option. While this worked perfectly fine, it did take almost 5 minutes to do. To shred the sweet potato in less than a minute, use the shredding blade on your food processor.
No need to peel the sweet potato (although you can if you really want to). I wish I could say I chose not to peel it as a way to increase the fiber content (which it does), it was simply out of laziness. And it was a great decision as you couldn’t tell the peel was left on at all! Just make sure to really scrub and rinse the sweet potato before shredding.
Additions and Substitutions
As with all frittata recipes, this one is super customizable! Feel free to add in extra vegetables – I think chopped broccoli would be delicious! You can also change up the cheese type for a different flavor.
For milk, the higher the percent fat of the milk, the richer the frittata will be. It can also be made with almond or soy milk – just make sure not to use the vanilla kind!
