Chorizo Kale and Sweet Potato Frittata

Chorizo, Kale and Sweet Potato Frittata is a one-pot meal using only five simple ingredients! Plus I’m sharing my tips for easy meal planning and cooking more at home!

Do you plan your meals? Or do you stop at the grocery store every day and buy whatever you feel like that day? Or do you frequently order take out or dine at restaurants?   I do a little of everything. I usually meal plan at least 5 meals during the week and then stop at the store last minute the other two days out of the week. I usually eat about one meal a week outside of my house, usually on the weekends when I am running errands or spending time with friends.

Frittatas are great because they are a one pot meal that are easy and can be adapted to suit everyone’s taste. Chorizo, kale and sweet potato frittata combines chunks of veggie and flavorful chorizo. Only five simple ingredients create an easy breakfast, brunch or even dinner. It is the perfect addition to your weekly meal plan.

A few people have told me that their New Year’s resolution is to meal plan and cook more from home. Today, I am sharing a few tips for cooking more at home. I would also love to hear your tips for meal planning. Feel free to share in the comments below.

Here are three tips for easy meal planning and cooking more at home:

(1) Find a few recipes that you love and add them to your rotation – Browse Pinterest, your favorite recipe blog or even dig out some of your favorite cookbooks and pick a few recipes that you know you love. Having a list of recipes takes the guesswork out of meal planning.

(2) Start a calendar of what you would like to cook over the next few days or weeks – A calendar helps keep you on track. You know what you want to cook and when you are going to cook it.

(3) Create a shopping day and make a shopping list – Spending a few minutes each week creating a shopping list will save time and money. Scheduling a shopping day will save time and ensure that you have all of the ingredients you need on hand when you are ready to cook a delicious meal.

    I love breakfast foods, could eat it for every meal, and I think I could definitely have this frittata for lunch or dinner.

  2. Laura @ Laura's Culinary Adventures

    Delicious frittata! I plan on going to the grocery store once a week, but I invariably forget something and have to go mid week.

  3. Melanie @ Carmel Moments

    It’s been a long time since I’ve had a frittata and it looks perfect! Love the sweet potato and kale combo.
    Pinned.
    Have an awesome Monday Ashley!

  4. Gayle @ Pumpkin 'N Spice

    This frittata looks fantastic, Ashley! I love whipping these up because of how easy and tasty they are. I’m loving that you used chorizo and sweet potatoes, two of my faves! Can’t wait to try this out!

  5. Jocelyn (Grandbaby cakes)

    This frittata is incredible. I never really plan my meals that much. I kinda go with the flow but I need to start planning with this recipe first!

  6. heather @french press

    I like to plan at least 5 meals a week, and then wing it the other days. Frittatas are PERFECT for weekends, and this one sounds amazing

  7. Kelly Senyei | Just a Taste

    This looks fantastic for breakfast, brunch OR dinner! Love all of these ingredients and can’t wait to add this to my weeknight menu!

  8. Marissa

    I have to create week-long menus, otherwise we eat out all. of. the. time! :) Frittatas are a go to meal in our house and this looks just awesome!

  9. Alice @ Hip Foodie Mom

    Ashley, I try to meal plan and shop ahead of time as much as possible. . with kids, I feel like I have to do this. . there are days where I’m tired so we just wing it or order pizza!! :) I love this chorizo kale and sweet potato frittata!!! I am all about sweet potatoes right now!! love this and will totally give this one a try! love!

  10. Kelly

    I’m the same way and make at least 5 meals a week but I am still trying to get better with meal planning too. Starting by adding this frittata to our menu :) This looks so fresh and delicious and I love all the kale and sweet potatoes in here!

  11. Ashley

    It has been far far too long since I’ve made a frittata! This looks so good with that chorizo … something else that it’s been far too long since I’ve used! And yay for meal planning! I’m a huge supporter of meal planning!! :)

  12. marcie

    I really have been meal planning more so that I don’t have to go to the store so much..which leads to spending too much money on food! I do eat out 1-2 times per week and wing it here and there, but it’s so important to have a game plan on busy nights. This frittata would be one great week night meal or brunch, and I love that you added chorizo!

  13. Medha @ Whisk & Shout

    I’m loving the bright colors of the frittata and the toppings! SO fresh and delish :)

  14. Julie @ Julie's Eats & Treats

    I totally am a meal planner all the way out of necessity! This looks like a fabulous option to add to my weekly meal plan!

  15. mymansbelly

    This looks a lot prettier than your usual frittata. I love all the bright colors.

  16. Courtney @ Neighborfood

    I seem to go through phases with menu planning. For awhile, I’m really good at it, but then I hit a slump and slack off. I’m definitely in a slump right now, and this is great motivation to get back to it!

  17. Amanda

    This looks delicious, a great idea for a weekend breakfast!

  18. Sonali- The Foodie Physician

    I love making frittatas and this one looks amazing! The colors are gorgeous and you can just tell that it’s bursting with flavor!

  19. Aimee @ Like mother like daughter

    I admit I am the worst at meal planning – actually we will get into a good streak where we meal plan for a few weeks and eat at home and then we’ll get off and I end up going to the store almost every day and we eat out way too much. Such is life I guess, but I know I’d spend less if I was better at it and didn’t run to the store for one thing and end up with 10 in my basket! I’ve never made a frittata before but this one looks gorgeous and so delicious and filling. I can’t wait to try it out!

  20. K / Pure & Complex

    I am such a huge fan of chorizo and this frittata looks absolutely wonderful

  21. Amanda @ Cookie Named Desire

    I love your suggestions. More often than not, I have maybe One meal planned out, then I just buy whatever looks good and hope for the best! I need to work on my Meal planning skills for sure. I’m definitely going to be able to make this though because it’s so convenient and uses stuff that’s always in the house!

  22. Ashley | The Recipe Rebel

    Love anything breakfasty, any time of day! Especially eggs! I also love your tips for meal planning — that is so important!

  23. Julia @ Sprinkled With Jules

    All your food recipes sound so fresh and yummy! Things I’d never think of, but they always sound so appealing!

  24. Christin@SpicySouthernKitchen

    I love how versatile frittatas are and that they can be eaten any meal of the day! The combination of chorizo, kale, and sweet potato sounds amazing!

  25. Christine @ Cooking with Cakes

    ummm this frittata is EVERYTHING! kale, chroizo, and sweet potato?!?! swoon swoon swoon, I need me a slice 😉

  26. Denise | Sweet Peas & Saffron

    No meal planning at my house…which constantly results in 5pm freak-outs. Wish I had it in me to be so organized! Love this fritatta, looks like a delicious breakfast or dinner!

  27. Theresa @DearCreatives
