Spinach Sweet Potato Frittata

Although cookies and baked goods are delicious and fun to make, we need other food during the holidays too…right? At least I think so! One thing my husband and I always forget about when people stay at the house is breakfast. We have dinner, lunches, snacks, and desserts planned – but we always forget about breakfast!

A lot of big breakfast recipes take a lot of time, and make a huge mess. And when people are at your house, the last thing you want to do is clean and miss out on the fun. That’s why I wanted to find a recipe that I can easily do in the morning that (1) doesn’t make a huge mess and (2) that everyone can enjoy!

Which leads me to the recipe… a Spinach Sweet Potato Frittata – sounds delicious, right? It totally is! We make this a lot during the week, and then eat the left overs for breakfast. Loaded with veggies, this recipe will be a morning hit and keep you and your guests full!!

(And of course, it’s completely paleo, whole 30, dairy-free and gluten-free)
