Green chili and eggs for breakfast: a frittata recipe

There is almost nothing better than green chili and eggs for breakfast. One way to achieve that is the humble frittata—they are just too easy not to try them with everything. And as you know if you’ve read my blog before, I grew up in Albuquerque and I will put green chili on literally anything. This frittata has green chili and sweet potatoes and is just the thing for a fall breakfast. You could easily switch the Parmesan for goat cheese or even cheddar, and it would be nice with some green onions or herbs on top as well. Happy breakfast!

Green Chile Frittata

Servings 6

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 small onion, diced finely
  • 3/4 cup raw, diced green chili canned will work
  • 5 eggs
  • 3-4 tbsp heavy cream
  • salt, pepper and garlic or garlic powder to taste
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese, grated for the top
  • 1 medium sweet potato, peeled and diced

Instructions

  • Sauté the onion and sweet potato for a few minutes in a cast iron or other oven safe skillet over medium heat. Add the green chili, and let cook about 2-3 more minutes, stirring gently. Add the salt, pepper and garlic to the pan.
    Whisk the eggs and cream together and slowly pour them over the green chili mixture. Allow it all to cook on medium heat for about a minute, so a crust forms. Sprinkle the Parmesan cheese (or cheese of your choice) on top and place the skillet in the oven, preheated at 350, for ten minutes. And voila, green chili and eggs for breakfast.
    This would go well with some salsa but stands nicely on its own! It also keeps well in the fridge for a few days.
