Pope Fitness: Zucchini and Sweet Potato Frittata

Talk about a yummy, quick recipe to make ahead for breakfast all week! I am always looking for delicious ways to mix things up. Especially when it comes to breakfast. Here is a quick (only 34 minutes from start to finish) and easy recipe that is sure to light up your taste buds!


  • 2 tsp. olive oil
  • 3 medium zucchini, thinly sliced
  • 1 medium red bell pepper, chopped
  • ½ medium onion, chopped
  • 1 small cooked sweet potato, cutinto 1-inch cubes
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh basil, (reservea small amount for garnish)
  • ¼ tsp sea salt or Himalayan salt
  • 6 large eggs, lightly beaten


Heat oil in 10-inch nonstick skillet overmedium heat.

Add zucchini, bell pepper, and onion; cook, stirring frequently, for 2 minutes, or until zucchini is tender.

Add sweet potato, basil, and salt. Increase heat to medium-high; cook, stirring frequently, for about 30 to 60 seconds, or until the moisture has evaporated. Reduce heat to medium-low.

Add eggs. Mix well; cook, without stirring, for about 2 to 3 minutes, or until the bottom is light golden. As it cooks, lift the edges and tilt skillet so uncooked eggs flow to the edges.

Reduce heat to low; continue cooking, covered, for 10 to 12 minutes, or until knife inserted in center comes out clean.

Garnish with reserved basil; serve immediately.
