  • 1/4 cup (60 mL) finely chopped flat-leaf parsley
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Preparation

Position oven rack 6-inches (15 cm) from broiler. Preheat broiler.

In medium bowl, whisk together eggs, 3/4 cup (175 mL) Canadian Asiago cheese, Canadian Medium Cheddar cheese and milk.

In 12-inch (30 cm) non-stick ovenproof skillet, over medium heat, melt butter, add sweet potatoes; cover, stirring occasionally and cook 5 to 6 min or until sweet potatoes are almost tender. Add spinach and cook uncovered, about 1 to 2 min or until slightly wilted. Reduce heat to medium-low; pour egg mixture over vegetables; cover and cook for 5 to 6 min or until bubbles are coming through mixture and bottom is golden brown (eggs won't be fully set.)

Remove cover; sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup (125 mL) Canadian Asiago cheese. Broil for 1-1/2 min or until egg is set and cheese is bubbling and slightly browned. Let stand 5 min; run spatula around outside edge of skillet to release frittata.

Slice and serve immediately with Fresh Sweet Onion Salsa.
