recipes {sweet potato frittata & homemade egg mcmuffin}

i love eggs. egg scrambles, fried eggs, deviled eggs & so many more. this week i made two delicious egg dishes that i am so excited to share with you guys. they are very different dishes so i hope you will try atleast one of these recipes!

Sweet Potato & Red Bell Pepper Frittata

I love frittatas. I think they are a great way to sneak veggies into breakfast & still have something that tastes amazing. For this frittata I just grabbed some things that I had in my fridge to make a fabulous brunch for my husband & me! :)

{serves 2}

4 Eggs
1 Medium Sweet Potato or half of a large one
1/2 Cup White Onion, Chopped
1 Clove of Garlic, Crushed
1/4 Cup Red Bell Pepper, Sliced Thinly
4 oz Sliced Honey Ham, Chopped
Parmesan Cheese

1. Preheat oven to Broil.
2. Cut the sweet potato into small cubes & place into a microwave safe bowl. Microwave the sweet potato for about two minutes until soft.
2. Heat up a large, oven safe skillet to medium-high heat. Spray some non-stick cooking spray & dump the sweet potatos & chopped onion into the hot pan. Sautee until the potatoes are nicely browned & the onions begin to turn translucent.
3. Next, add peppers, ham & garlic. Sautee for another 3 minutes until all veggies are tender.
4. Whisk eggs in a bowl & add a dash of salt & pepper. Grate about 1/2 oz of Parmesan cheese into the egg mixture. Turn down the pan's heat to medium & pour egg mixture into the hot pan with veggies.
5. Using a spatcula, gently push around the eggs to allow any uncooked egg to slowly become firm. Stop stirring & allow the eggs sit for about 1 minute on the stove & then take the pan & put it into the oven.
6. KEEP OVEN DOOR SLIGHTLY OPEN. {You never want to close the oven door when broiling} Keep your eye on the frittata while in the oven because it will puff up & brown quicker than you might think. Once the frittata is puffy & slighly brown, remove from the oven. Sprinkle a bit more cheese on top & serve hot!

Homemade Egg McMuffin {with honey ham}

{serves 6}

6 Eggs
12 oz Sliced Honey Ham {2 slices = 2 oz}
6 Whole Wheat English Muffins
3 oz Sharp Cheddar Cheese

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grab a muffin tin & crack one egg in each hole. Bake for about 10 minutes. {You can scramble the egg or just drop it in & you will get great results}
2. Cut each English Muffin in half & toast them until slightly crispy.
3. Time to put together our McMuffin! With one English Muffin, place 2 slices of ham on the bottom bun followed by 1/2 oz of cheese. Take the warm egg right out of the oven & place it on top of the cheese & top with the other half of the muffin.

{i realize i should have taken better pictures with my real camera but i was in a rush & only snapped a few with my iphone. i didn't top my mcmuffins because i wanted to save some extra calories, but if you want to make a real sandwich simply put the tops on these & enjoy!}
