Southwestern Frittata

I love this meal. There aren’t meany recipes I start off with that statement haha… but this to me is a great comfort food meal, that prepares easily and is good for any meal of the day. Reheats well, has lots of hidden veggies (score!) and it’s just tasty.

I found this recipe from the Against All Grain – Meals Made Easy book, so I wanted to share it with you and also just recommend her books in general. She has a few books out, and they all have tasty recipes and information in them. She has a section in the back too for meal planning and grocery lists and shopping, and a really cool image directory for looking up meals. The author, Danielle Walker, has a really cool personal story on how she used food to heal her body from a horrible digestive disease, so she is just an encouraging individual in general as well.

Ingredients:

  • 1.5 lb. Ground Beef
  • 1.2 cup yellow onion diced (her recipe specified red onion, but I prefer yellow)
  • 1/2 cup peeled and diced sweet potato (or butternut squash)
  • 2.5 tbsp. taco seasoning
  • 2 cups chopped baby spinach
  • 1/2 cup diced zucchini
  • 1/3 cup diced mushrooms (my addition)
  • 1/3 cup diced red bell pepper (my addition)
  • 10 large eggs
  • Sea Salt
  • Pepper
  • Cilantro for garnishing

What To Do:

  1. Brown ground meat and diced onion in an oven safe 10-12 in. skillet and drain any fat.
  2. Add the sweet potato and cook a few more minutes.
  3. Add the taco seasoning, baby spinach, zucchini, mushrooms and red bell pepper and continue stirring and heating through.
  4. Beat 10 large eggs in a separate bowl and add sea salt and pepper.
  5. Pour the eggs on top of the meat mixture and mix everything thoroughly.
  6. Place the whole skillet in the oven and bake at 350 degrees for 12 minutes or until the egg is cooked through. I think I usually end up cooking it a little longer than that.
  7. Remove from the oven, slice and top with salsa and avocado! Super tasty!
Meat and veggie mixture!
Eggs have been added!
Baked and ready to eat!
