Yes the name of this recipe is a link to one of my favourite childhood books by Dr Suess. After eating this fritatta I’m sure you would say you like to eat green eggs & ham (or bacon) anywhere. This is a recipe that is just in my brain & you can use any vegetables or any cheese, perfect for breakfast, lunch or dinner, great for lunch boxes too – See my live face book video of me making the dish here. I’d love to know any of your variations, I sometimes make a fritata with smoked salmon as well .
1 large sweet potato roughly cubed (no need to peel)
4 rashers of bacon
1 red onion sliced
5 sprigs fresh parsley
2 cloves garlic
100g spinach or silver beet leaves
250g cream or greek yoghurt
salt & pepper to taste
200g feta cheese
Turn the oven on to 180 degrees & in your baking dish roast your sweet potato, onion & bacon rashers, you don't want to over cook the bacon & the sweet potato should be just cooked through.
Place garlic & parsley into the TM bowl & chop for 2 secs speed 7. Add the spinach & chop roughly for 3 secs speed 5.5 - you may need to use your spatula to help push all the leaves into the blades.
Add the eggs, cream & salt & pepper & mix for 5 secs speed 4. Spread the mixture over the roasted sweet potato & bacon. Crumble over the feta cheese & return to the oven to bake for approx 20 mins or until golden.
Do you like a creamy mash? Oh hello!! This is so indulgent but it is so worth the calories!! Winner, winner salmon dinner! Plus it is super easy!!
So this might be a silly question but how do you get your mash so creamy? Add cream to it of course!! Oh & use a Thermomix!! If I want to be super decadent I replace the milk with cream in the guided recipe for mashed potato. (if you choose this option you can sometimes get a slight coating on the base of the Thermomix bowl which will need a bit of a scrub but it is so worth it!) My favourite cream to use is Tasmanian Ashgrove cream. I am lucky that they sell large 2 litre containers of this close to where I live, perfect for making butter in the Thermomix too.
Feel free to use any veggies you like for the mash or steamed veggies here are my top suggestions.
My favourite mash or puree’ veggies are either just a single one of these veggies or mix a couple together. Try floury potatoes or sweet potatoes (I don’t even bother peeling them) Or cauliflower, pumpkin or parsnip.
Eat your greens – try any or all of the following:
Frozen peas – you can even blitz these to make into mushy peas instead of serving the mash if you want.
Try zucchinis, broccoli, broccolini, boc choy or asparagus.
Now last but not least the salmon – I love fresh dill & salt & pepper but you can add garlic, lemon zest, chives or capers.
I hope you have fun mixing it up – trying different combos depending on what is in season or you have available to you at the time.
You can use any veggies you like – pictured here is my home grown zucchini & frozen peas with creamy sweet potato mash and steamed salmon with fresh dill.
