  • 1 medium sweet potato, peeled and cut into 1/4-inch slices
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 7 large eggs
  • 3 tablespoons fat-free milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 6 center-cut bacon strips, coarsely chopped
  • 1 small green pepper, chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped red onion
  • 2 cups coarsely chopped fresh kale


  1. Preheat oven to 375°. Place sweet potato and water in a microwave-safe bowl; microwave, covered, on high until potato is just tender, 5-6 minutes; drain.
  2. Meanwhile, whisk together eggs, milk, salt and pepper. In a 10-in. oven-safe skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp, stirring occasionally. Using a slotted spoon, remove bacon to paper towels. Remove all but 1 tablespoon drippings from pan.
  3. In drippings, saute green pepper, onion and kale over medium heat until tender, 4-5 minutes. Reduce heat to low. Stir in egg mixture; add potato and bacon. Cook until eggs are partially set, 1-2 minutes.
  4. Transfer to oven; bake until eggs are set, 5-7 minutes. Cut into wedges.

Test Kitchen tips
  • Center-cut bacon has more meat and less fat per strip. Regular bacon can be used, too.
  • Finishing the frittata in the oven instead of on the stovetop will keep the bottom from getting too dark.
  • Frittatas can also be served cold, which makes them easy to pack for lunch or a picnic.
