Paleo Chorizo, Sweet Potato and Mushroom Frittata

Got a tableful of big appetites to satisfy first thing in the morning? Not a problem with this bold and beautiful one-skillet paleo frittata packed with meat and veggies you could be dishing out in about 30 minutes.

I love frittatas because they’re a really simple, no-fuss way to feed a hungry crowd.

Chop some veggies, shred the potato, crack some eggs, grab a skillet, do a little sautéing and you’ve got a breakfast that goes from stovetop to oven to plate surprisingly fast.

And this one is especially tasty – the ground chorizo will wake up everyone’s taste buds with a spicy little kick.

Prep for this one is mainly slicing and dicing the vegetables, and the sweet potato needs to be peeled and grated. But that’s just part of the fun that comes with making a wholesome frittata…and it’s why this classic Italian skillet meal in all its many variations has been so popular for so long.

Just remember to choose an oven-proof skillet, and ideally one that’s non-stick. And once you put your skillet in the oven, never forget that handle is HOT! Remember to use an oven mitt or pot holder to pull it out. [av_sidebar widget_area=’Lockerdome’ av_uid=’av-nh2z8e’]

Slice and garnish with avocado slices and this paleo frittata makes for an amazing non-dairy paleo breakfast.

Have leftovers? Lucky you…wrap or bag each slice (after it’s completely cooled) and freeze!

Hope you enjoy this one…and as always, drop me a note below and let me know what you think.
