Sweet Potatoes and Brie

Happy New Year!!!! I hope your holidays were lovely. Mine were – until I got sick.

I spent half of last week trying to pretend I wasn’t sick and the other half in bed, struck down in the prime of lime (get me?) by the common cold. I didn’t cook anything (although I defrosted some excellent soup that I wanted to hug my past self for making) all week, which is probably why I chose to attempt a bunch of new recipes in this first full week of 2015. So, here we go!

I got the idea for this recipe from the Vegetarian Student Cookbook, but I didn’t read the whole thing (oops) and I thought I was making a pizza. I love to make naan bread pizzas, so I picked up some garlic naan at A&P and was pretty excited about it.

The recipe called for sweet potatoes (1lb.), brie cheese, onions, garlic, eggs (5), and olive oil.

Step 1IMG_1079

Peel and chop the sweet potatoes. Put them in a baking pan, drizzle with olive oil, and roast in the oven at 400 degrees for 15 minutes.

Step 2

While the potatoes are roasting, chop up one or two onions (I used two because they were on the small side) and some garlic (I used about 5 cloves). Keep the onions and garlic separate.

Step 3

Crack 5 eggs into a mixing bowl and scramble them. Add salt and pepper and then add the garlic. Mix together.

Step 4 IMG_1080

When the oven timer goes off, take the sweet potatoes out. Add the onions to the pan and drizzle more olive oil if needed. Put the pan back in the oven for 20 more minutes (at 400 degrees).

Step 5

I think this may have been about when I popped the naan in the oven. The recipe didn’t call for the naan, but I was confused. So, your choice on this step: naan? or no naan?

Step 6

When the oven timer goes off, take the pan out. IMG_1082Add the sweet potatoes and onions (which should be tender) to the mixing bowl. Stir the eggs, garlic, onion, sweet potatoes, salt and pepper together. Next, take out a frying pan (we used a cast iron pan) and add oil (not a lot). Pour the mixture into the pan and cook over medium heat until the bottom is crispy.

Step 7IMG_1083

Slice up the brie and add it to the top of the pan. I added it in large chunks and let it melt a little. After that, it moved around like butter and formed a nice topping!

Step 8

Turn off the stove and place the pan in the oven. Let it crisp up in there for a bit. Afterwards, you can IMG_1084slice it up and serve it as a frittata of sorts or slice it up and put it on top of the naan like a pizza of sorts. I’m sure either would be delicious, but I just loved it with the naan!

Yay for the first new recipe of 2015 🙂 Boo for the iPhone pics – not the best quality.

What are you cooking this year?
