São Tomé and Príncipe - Sweet Potato Frittata

São Tomé and Príncipe is an island nation made up of two islands off the coast of Africa. For breakfast they often eat leftovers of the previous night's meal which could be the case with this sweet potato frittata.


2 sweet potatoes
6 eggs
1/4 cup milk
Salt & pepper

Peel then dice the onion and sweet potatoes.

 Mix the eggs, milk, salt & pepper.

 Saute the onion until starting to go soft then add the sweet potato and saute some more until both are soft.

 Pour over the egg mixture and let cook until the bottom is browned and set.

Here my recipe said to put the pan in the oven but since our pan isn't oven-proof we had to do some nifty flipping with a dinner plate instead. It worked out fine so you can do either depending on what pan you use. Cook until the other side is set and browned then serve hot.

I really liked this. The seasoning is very subtle but the flavour of the sweet potato gives a lovely sweet taste to the frittata. I was impressed how easy it was to make, even with the flipping we did and how well it held together. Leigh and JD enjoyed it too but yet again Erin resisted it's charms! Me and JD both had a slice the next morning for breakfast too and it was just as nice cold, if not nicer. Lovely. :)
