Butternut Squash Sweet Potato Two Cheese Frittata

Most everything I cook/bake these days has the toddler girl in mind, I would usually add 2 red chilli’s (not forgetting to remove every last seed!) to this frittata but she is still not mature enough for too many spicy foods, especially the way we like them, her time will come! 

This Butternut Squash Sweet Potato Two Cheese Frittata is packed with healthy anti-oxidant rich vegetables and protein rich eggs, great for the toddler tastebuds and a lovely supper dish for all the family.

Prep time -15-20 minutes

Cooking time – 20 minutes

Serves 3-4

Pre-heat your oven to 200°C/180°C fan/Gas 6

Ingredients

1 tablespoon Olive oil
175g Butternut Squash, peeled and cubed
100g Sweet Potato, peeled and cubed
4 medium organic free-range eggs
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
1 red chilli, deseeded and thinly sliced
50g Mozzarella cheese, roughly grated or very thinly sliced
25g Parmesan cheese, grated
50ml crème fraîche
black pepper
Fresh Parsley

Put a pan of water on to boil, when boiling add Butternut Squash and Sweet Potato and cook for about 5 minutes, drain and set aside. 

In a large bowl add the eggs and lightly beat, then add the garlic, chilli, Mozzarella, Parmesan and crème fraîche, stir in until completely blended, scatter some black pepper into the mix to your own taste.

Put a tablespoon of olive oil into a heavy based frying pan, one that can be used in the oven, heat and add the egg mixture to the pan.  Cook on a low-medium heat for about 5 minutes to set the base, then transfer into a pre-heated oven for around another 15 minutes until lightly golden.  Scatter with fresh parsley.

Serve with a side salad and some deliciously crusty bread and butter!
