Slow Cooker Ham & Sweet Potato Frittata
Ham & Sweet Potato Frittata and a glass of wine (wine optional)

Slow Cooker Ham & Sweet Potato Frittata is by far one of my favorite quick fix meals on Sunday morning; let me explain why.

A few years ago there was no way you would EVER get me to eat eggs…unless they were in a cake.  

After finding out I had Celiac I found my breakfast options were limited or at least that was what I thought. I was so use to eating bagels, cereal and muffins that I felt lost without my gluteny AM carb fix.

Feeling limited I decided to start with an egg white omelet, loaded with veggies, cheese and the taste hidden with hot sauce. It quickly became my favorite meal.  Over time I dropped the cheese, scaled back on the hot sauce and decided to finally eat the yolk.  Now I make an egg dish every week for a quick meal.
Sunday mornings I love to toss everything into the pot and let it cook for a few hours while at the gym or running errands…or catching up on T.V. Regardless, there’s no need to hover around the oven any more.
You can actually do this when just about any crustless quiche or frittata recipe. Slow Cooker Ham & Sweet Potato is one of my fav’s, but I also love cooking up my Cheesy Zucchini Egg Pie and Breakfast Sausage & Sweet Potato Frittata recipes in the slow cooker too.

Ham & Sweet Potato Slow Cooker Quittata
Serves: 8
Toss some eggs in a slow cooker and go about your business. Return for a simple and delicious custardy quiche + frittata = quittata.
  • 12 eggs
  • 2 c. sweet potato, steamed and diced (or raw and shredded)
  • 1 c. coconut milk, full fat (gives the frittata more of a custardy texture)
  • ½ lb ham (or any meat)
  • ½ c. red onion, chopped
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • ¼ tsp black pepper (optional)
  1. In a large bowl (or blender) combine eggs, coconut milk, salt and pepper and whisk thoroughly
  2. Pour egg mixture into slow-cooker
  3. Spread ham, sweet potato and onion across the egg mixture
  4. Cover and cook on high for 2-1/2 hours (for a quicker frittata remove coconut milk and cook on high for 1-1/2 hour)
  5. Go about your business and when you're ready come back and serve
The coconut milk gives this a custardy texture. However, you can simply omit if you're not into that!

        Echoing a couple of other questions below – sweet potato goes in when? With the ham & onion? Goes in raw? I assume it’s plenty of time to cook the sweet potato… Thanks!

          Hi! I have edited that thing so many times, looks like it saved properly…finally. I’m so so sorry!
          I usually used steamed sweet potato or shredded raw sweet potato, but usually the steamed. I mix it in when I put the ham in the mixture.
