Roasted Sweet Potato, Chicken Sausage, and Goat Cheese Frittata
Frittatas are a scrumptious way to add a good amount of your favorite things into one pan and call it breakfast or brunch (or, really, whatever meal time of the day you choose to eat this). It’s like a sophisticated omelette with it’s heavy egg base and crisped up edges.
Don’t like sweet potatoes? Use regular potatoes. Want bacon instead of chicken sausage? Do it! Need to get your veggies in? Add in some shiitake mushrooms, bell peppers, and spinach. The combinations are really endless with fritattas. This happens to be one of my favorite combos because, goat cheese.

- Sweet Potato, 1, small dice (about 1 cup)
- Chicken Sausage, 3-4 links
- Eggs, 8
- Salt, 1 tsp
- Ground Pepper, ½ tsp
- Ground Cumin, ½ tsp
- Cayenne, ½ tsp
- Coconut Oil, 1 tbsp
- Onion, 1, diced
- Garlic, 4 cloves, minced
- Rosemary, 1 sprig, chopped
- Goat Cheese, 1/3 cup, crumbled
HOW TO MAKE IT
Preheat the over to 400 degrees. On a baking sheet, toss the sweet potatoes on the pan with a little olive oil, salt, and pepper. Spread evenly so there is space around each dice of sweet potato (the space helps the potatoes get crispy). Bake for 10-15 minutes or until crispy. Set aside and reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees.
In a mixing bowl, whisk the eggs together along with the salt, ground pepper, ground cumin, and cayenne. Set aside.
In a deep 10” skillet on medium high heat, cook the sausage links. Once cooked all the way through, set aside. Once cool, dice into bite-size chunks.
In the same skillet on medium high heat, add the diced onions and garlic. Add in about a ½ tsp of salt and sugar to help caramelize and flavor the onions and garlic. When the onions become lightly golden, add the rosemary and cook until fragrant.
Add the roasted sweet potatoes and chicken sausage to the skillet and stir together.
Reduce the heat to medium low and pour the egg mixture on top of the ingredients in the skillet. Do not stir this. Add the crumbled goat cheese evenly on top and let the eggs cook for about a few minutes.
When the eggs begin to set in the pan and the edges aren’t runny, transfer the skillet to the oven and bake at 350 for about 10-12 minutes. When the eggs begin to puff up slightly, turn the oven to a high broil and cook for 2-3 minutes to form a golden top. Watch this carefully to make sure nothing burns.
Remove from the oven and let sit for about 5 minutes before serving. Enjoy!
