Sweet Potato crust:

  1. Grease your muffin tray with a sprinkle of olive oil
  2. Peel and grate your sweet potato
  3. Place approximately 2 heaped tablespoons of grated sweet potato into each muffin tray compartment and pat down to make a flat base layer
  4. Sprinkle with olive oil, salt and pepper
  5. Cover your tray with foil and pop into the oven to cook and crisp for 20 minutes
  6. Once it is done, using a fork, compact the cooked sweet potato and leave to cool for 10 minutes

  1. Slice your red onion into medium slices
  2. Drizzle your olive oil into a pan and fry your onion on med-high heat until they start to soften and caramelize
  3. Drizzle and stir balsamic vinegar into the caramelized onions and leave to simmer for 2 minutes.
  4. In a bowl mix together your caramelized onions, feta, grated Parmesan, spinach (torn into small bite-sized pieces) and Italian seasoning
  5. Pour your Frittata egg base mixture into the same bowl and stir it all together
  6. Once the sweet potato crust has cooled, pour your egg filling into the muffin tray – do not fill right to the top of the compartment as the egg mixture will still rise and spill over the edges
  7. Place your muffin tray onto a flat oven tray (incase the egg mixture spills over while cooking) and place in the oven to cook for 20 minutes or until set and golden brown
  8. Allow to cool before removing the frittatas from the tray

  4. Pour your Frittata egg base into the mixing bowl and stir it all together
  5. Pour your egg filling into the muffin tray. Do not fill to the top of each compartment as the egg mixture will still rise and spill over the edges
  6. Tear about half of your prosciutto and drape over each frittata and then using a spoon gently push the prosciutto into the egg filling
  7. Place your muffin tray onto a flat oven tray (incase the egg mixture spills over while cooking) and place in the oven to cook for 20 minutes or until set and golden brown
  8. Allow to cool before removing the Frittatas from the tray
