Bacon Spinach and Sweet Potato Frittata recipe by Barefeet In The Kitchen

On the weekends, I love making a special breakfast when I have a little more time to play in the kitchen. Bacon, Eggs, Spinach and Sweet Potatoes sounded great to me, so I combined them into one of my favorite new breakfasts.

I can hardly wait to try a version of this in muffin cups, to see how well it freezes for quick and easy breakfasts.

Bacon Spinach and Sweet Potato Frittata


  • 1/4 lb bacon cut into 1 1/2" pieces
  • 1 large sweet potato peeled and cut into 1/2" disks
  • 1 med onion diced into 1/2" pieces
  • 6 eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • large handful of baby spinach about 1 ½ cups
  • Kosher salt to taste


  • In a large oven-proof skillet over high heat, cook the bacon. When it is finished, remove the bacon to a paper towel lined plate and set aside. Reduce heat to medium and add the onions to the same skillet with the bacon drippings. Cook the onions for 2 minutes and then add potato slices. Sprinkle with salt and cook for 3 minutes on each side. While the potatoes are cooking, whisk the eggs and the milk together. Add salt and pepper and set aside.
  • Preheat the oven to broiler low. When the potatoes are slightly browned and soft, sprinkle them with baby spinach. Pour the egg mixture on top and then sprinkle with the cooked bacon. Top with shredded cheese. Continue to cook over medium low heat, until the eggs start to set. This should take about 10 minutes. After 6-8 minutes, lift the edges of the eggs to allow the liquid to run down underneath and cook more completely.
  • When the eggs are set, transfer the pan to the oven.  Broil until lightly browned, about 5 minutes or so. Let cool for just a few minutes before slicing and serving. Enjoy!

    Awesome dish Mary. We've been trying to use sweet potatoes in more unconventional ways as well. I especially like that you fried the onions and potatotes in the bacon fat then completed the dish in that pan. I can almost taste how good this is.

    You have inspired me to use sweet potato in unexpected places, Mary. This honestly sounds wonderful and I just have to think the smokiness of the bacon up against the sweet potato would be a great combo.

    I only make more involved breakfasts on weekends too. I don't even eat breakfast during the week but I do make it for my son at least. This fritatta looks tasty, the spinach is making me ready for spring.
