You already know that we are all about the make ahead breakfasts, so it is no shock to see that we’ve got another breakfast recipe. This bacon sweet potato frittata is great for making over the weekend to have on stand-by in the fridge.
Bacon And Sweet Potatoes
This bacon sweet potato frittata is a savory-sweet combo that is always a good idea and honestly doesn’t really get old either. It’s hearty, filling and a great way to start your day. The best part is that when you make it ahead of time over the weekend, it will be sitting in your fridge ready to be re-heated during your busy work week.
Simple And Easy
This recipe calls for all simple ingredients, nothing fancy or unusual. Just make sure you cube your sweet potatoes into small enough pieces, so they get tender roasting in the oven for 25-30 minutes. Seriously, then it’s just cooking up the bacon while the potatoes roast, prepping a couple of veggies and putting it all together before it goes into the oven to finish cooking.
The Perfect Meal Prep
This is an easy recipe to add to your meal prep because you’ll enjoy eating this bacon sweet potato frittata on repeat during the work week. It makes great leftovers and tastes just as good reheated as it does the day you make it.

Bacon Sweet Potato Frittata Recipe (Paleo + Whole30)
- 2 sweet potatoes, cut into small cubes
- 1 tbsp avocado oil
- 10 pieces bacon, diced
- 3 cups spinach, roughly chopped, (or sub other greens)
- 4 green onions, diced
- 3 cups mushrooms, diced
- 12 eggs
- 2 tsp sea salt, divided
- 1 tsp ground pepper
- Preheat oven to 400° Fahrenheit and line 1 large or 2 medium baking sheets with parchment paper.
- Cut sweet potato into small cubes and spread them out on baking sheet. Drizzle with oil and season with about 1 tsp sea salt. Mix to coat and place in the oven to bake for 25-30 minutes, or until potatoes are tender.
- While potatoes are cooking, dice bacon and place it in a large oven safe skillet over medium heat (use a large skillet, you will add all ingredients in the skillet later to cook in the oven). Cook bacon until it is just starting to get crispy. Remove and place on a paper towel lined plate. Reserve enough bacon fat in the bottom of the pan to coat.
- Chop spinach, green onions and mushrooms.
- Whisk eggs together in a large bowl. Add in spinach, green onions, mushrooms, bacon and 1 tsp each of salt and pepper. When the potatoes are finished, turn the oven down to 375 degrees Fahrenheit and place potatoes in the bowl. Mix everything together.
- Now, heat the skillet you cooked the bacon in over medium heat and pour the egg mixture in. Let it cook for 2-3 minutes until bottom has cooked slightly.
- Transfer to the oven and cook for an additional 20-25 minutes, or until the eggs are cooked through. Cooking time will depend on the size of the skillet, so check it after 15 minutes and remove once the eggs are set in the middle. Remove from the oven, cut into pieces and serve.
Excellent recipe! I used frozen organic sweet potatoes and saved a step. It turned out perfect!
Happy to hear that Janice, thanks for coming back to leave a review!
This recipe was pretty easy to make. I did make exactly how the recipe was written but you could change it up with whatever you had. Halved the recipe and still plenty. Thank you.
Thanks so much for giving our recipe a try! We love hearing you enjoyed it, and we appreciate you coming back to leave a review. 🙂
Wow! This frittata definitely deserves all 5 stars! The directions were easy to follow and the whole family enjoyed it! I didn’t have mushrooms on hand so I used brussel sprouts instead – delicious! This will definitely be a recipe I keep coming back to – especially when I have guests. YUM!
We’re so glad to hear the whole family enjoyed it! Thanks so much for sharing on IG and for coming back here to leave your review. We really appreciate it! 🙂
Is there nutritional information for this recipe somewhere?
Hi Michelle – For the nutrition info, as part of our real food/paleo lifestyle we don’t track any nutrition information personally, and it has been really liberating for us and helped us find food freedom. For that reason we don’t post the nutrition info on our recipes, with the only exception being the Keto specific recipes on our site. You could plug the ingredients into an online nutrition calculator like myfitnesspal if needed though.
Loved this frittata! It’s the kind of recipe that you can substitute with what you have on hand. I cut the recipe in half and used some bok choy & spinach and scallion. I also had a sweet potato that was already cooked so just added it to the mixture.
Thank you for so many good recipes.
Perfect, you’re very welcome!
