Bacon & Cherry Tomato Pizza Frittata with Sweet Potato Crust

TGIF!  Any fun plans for the weekend?  We are en route to Iowa at the moment.  I forgot my computer charger at work so I have very little battery to work with, but I wanted to get this recipe up like I promised today J  So here is a short and sweet post with the recipe for the meal I had on Wednesday night.

This dish tastes like a pizza for whatever reason but is technically a frittata.  Either way, it’s delicious and EASY.  Both major requirements in my book.  ENJOY!

  • 3 small- medium sweet potatoes, shredded
  • 5 large eggs
  • 2 large pieces of bacon
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halfed
  • ½ large onion, finely minced
  • 1 TB savory or other favorite spice (thyme would work beautifully)
  • salt/pepper

Shred potatoes, pat into sprayed pie pan and sprinkle with salt and pepper.  Bake for 15 minutes at 375.  Meanwhile, cook bacon in a small pan over medium-low.   Remove bacon from pan and crumble.  Take potatoes out of oven and baste with bacon grease.  Using a brush, dip into the bacon grease and make a light layer over the potatoes.  Put back into the oven for another 5 minutes or until the outer edges begin to slightly brown.  Meanwhile, mix the eggs and add the tomatoes, onion and bacon bits and salt/pepper.

When potatoes are almost done, remove and add the egg mixture directly on top.  Put back into oven and back until eggs are set, about 20 minutes or so. Remove and cool.  Serve with salsa and avocados!
