A few weeks back I had the honor of working with Anne Sage of City Sage. She is a gem of a human being and talented in many ways. I bring her up today because she inspired me! Every morning when I showed up to her house she would have just finished cooking a fresh, savory, frittata. I KNOW! Dream girl.
When I was looking through my fridge trying to figure out what to make for you all, I thought back to those mornings and how I was inspired to create a frittata... or a tortilla... or a quiche? I mean... I guess it's not really a quiche but maybe it could be because you use the sweet potatoes as a 'crust'... meh, it's a frittata! I thought to myself, "how perfect! Valentines brunch!" ok, I didn't think that at ALL, but I am thinking it NOW and I do believe it to be true.
Gents, this dish is ridiculously easy and is sure to impress that 'special someone' in your life, trust me.
-SWEET POTATO, KALE QUICHE-
What you will need:
1 medium sweet potato, peeled and cut into rounds
6 eggs whisked until sooth
2 cups cake chopped kale
1 small onion (1/2 medium onion) sliced
1-2 cloves garlic, chopped fine
salt and pepper to taste
Preheat your oven to 425.
Heat 1-2 tbsp oil in your cast iron (I used a 9inch). Line with the sweet potato rounds, place in the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes until mostly cooked (lightly golden).
While the potatoes are in the oven, heat 1 tbsp oil in a pan and sauté the onion until slightly clear. Add in the kale and garlic until the Kale is lightly wilted (1-2 minutes). Cool.
Whisk eggs together in a bowl and add the kale and onion mixture in. Pour over the cooked sweet potatoes (I took a fork and flipped my sweet potatoes over for more even consistency) and place in the oven for 5-10 minutes until set and golden around the edges.
I have never made a frittata or tortilla for that matter, I usually like my eggs the traditional way- scrambled or fried (or poached if I'm feeling twirly), but you guys! This was so easy and delicious!
Anne- I (we) owe you a thank you! Thank you for inspiring me to step outside the box and create something so (damn) good.
Happy Valentines weekend everyone... may it be filled with love... and beauty... and... Ok I can't do this, Valentines is cheesy to me... just, ya know, love on each other a little more and share in some really good brunch (that may or may not be in the shape of a heart).
