Sweet Potato Frittata with Toasted Almonds

As I was trying out my new mandoline, this dish came together in just minutes. You can hand slice with just a little more time. The result is surprisingly sweet , salty and savory.

Preheat oven to 180c/350f

Large nonstick ovenproof frying pan

1/3 cup olive oil

1 small yellow onion -sliced thin

1 large sweet potato-sliced thin

1 handful toasted almond slices

10 eggs- beaten

sea salt/ cracked pepper

Heat olive oil

Sauté onion and potatoes on medium heat until the potatoes are fork tender. Do not brown. Generously salt and pepper potato mixture

Sprinkle with almond slices

Beat eggs

Flavor eggs with a bit more salt and pepper

Pour eggs over mixture and cook for 10 minutes.(until bottom sets)

Remove from heat and place in hot oven until top of eggs set(another 5-7 minutes)Watch carefully so not to overcook.

Sprinkle with a few more almonds and serve, hot, warm, or cold. Delicious!!
