Caramelised Onion and Roast Kumara Frittata

This dish contains only four main ingredients, making it a simple and nutritious week night dinner. 

Sweet potatoes are high in fibre and low in GI. Eggs are a great source of protein. I use mozzarella as it is a lower salt cheese and I am cooking for a baby. However, a tastier cheese like cheddar or even gruyere would suit this recipe.

Suitable for 7-9 mths +.

Caramelised Onion and Roast Kumara Frittata
1 tbsp olive oil
2 large onions, thickly sliced
800g sweet potato, cut into cubes and roasted
10 eggs, lightly beaten
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1 cup mozzarella cheese

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees.
  2. Heat oil in a large oven-safe frypan. Add onion over high heat and cook until caramalised. Remove from heat.
  3. In a bowl, combine beaten eggs, nutmeg, and cheese.
  4. Add roasted sweet potato to onion in pan. Spread evenly through.
  5. Pour egg mix over sweet potato and onion.
  6. Place pan in oven. Cook at 180 degrees for about 40min or until just set in the centre.
