With family in town, it makes more sense to make large quantities of food rather than making breakfast individually. Frittatas take much less hands-on time, in my opinion, so I have more time to play with this cutie while breakfast cooks:
Yet even though there are more mouths to feed, leftovers still arise. Last night we made a huge batch of Roasted Sweet Potatoes with Rosemary. Instead of simply heating up the leftovers, I threw them in with some eggs and a handful of spinach. Whisk, pour, cook, cover, and serve with a dash of salt and pepper.

- 2 Cups Roasted Sweet Potatoes with Rosemary
- 8 eggs (or the equivalent in egg whites)
- 1 cup finely chopped spinach
- oil, to grease pan
- salt and pepper, to taste
- Either use leftover roasted sweet potatoes with rosemary, or make it fresh by chopping approximately 2 sweet potatoes (or 2 cups) with skin on. Toss in 1 tablespoon of olive oil, 1 Tablespoon rosemary, and 1/4 teaspoon each of salt and pepper. Lay on baking sheet and roast at 450* for 40 minutes, or until slightly brown and soft. Stir occasionally while it bakes.
- Preheat a 12 inch pan with a dab of oil to prevent sticking.
- Beat eggs until fluffy and stir in spinach.
- Place roasted sweet potatoes in the preheated pan and pour egg-spinach mix on top so that it evenly covers it.
- Cover and cook on low heat until a toothpick comes out clean (about 10 minutes).
- Slice and serve with salt and pepper, to taste.
- Eggs: Great source of protein, vitamins, minerals, and healthy fat. They are great for your eyes because of the carotenoid content. Also great for your nervous and cardiovascular system because of the choline content. Contrary to previous belief, moderate consumption of eggs does not have a negative impact on cholesterol, and it is one of the only foods with naturally-occurring vitamin D.
- Rosemary: Rosemary is rich in calcium, magnesium and potassium. It has good amount of phosphorus, sodium and iron with small amount of zinc, copper, manganese and selenium. It is also useful in increasing blood circulation, improving concentration and digestion. It stimulates the immune system, reduces the severity of asthma attacks and helps prevent breast cancer.

Thought-provoking, mind-prodding question of the day:
When you have guests over, what is your go-to breakfast/brunch?
I love making pancakes, frittatas, or baked oatmeal!
