It has been WAY too long since I’ve shared a breakfast recipe with you! Technically I shared a blueberry smoothie chia pudding back in July, but I haven’t made you something with eggs since February… and I eat eggs all the time.

On. The. Reg. <— No seriously I do. Have you seen my Instagram?!

I don’t even know who I am anymore.

Eggs are a staple in my diet. After completing my first Whole30 in January, I took a little break from them because I ate an absurd amount during those 30 days. That and the fact that if you follow the AIP diet, eggs are not allowed. Since I have been experimenting with my diet and what works best for me, eggs have come and gone a few times this year.

But they are BACK and I couldn’t be happier.

If you have been following me for a while, you have probably picked up on the fact that I like Mexican food – tacos, fajitas, and just about anything with Mexican flavors.

I undoubtedly could eat Mexican food every day for the rest of my life, and this Whole30 taco frittata satisfied my Mexican craving this past weekend (in addition to the tacos I made for lunch on Saturday and Sunday… see what I mean?)!

But this breakfast, man! This Whole30 taco frittata is my jam. It is filled with LOTS of veggies, starting with a thick layer of sweet potato crust and followed by white onion and green pepper. Add in some seasoned ground turkey and allllll the eggs.

Bake that baby up. We just hit breakfast heaven.

      Hi Erika! I’ve had this in my fridge for 5 days. I tend to make frittatas or egg bakes on Sundays and eat a slice for breakfast every morning during the week!

    hello. do you think this would work with sweet potato that is already baked as a crust? I ask because i already meal prepped my sweet potatoes by baking them and now i think id like to also make this.. Just curious. Thanks!

      Hi Karen! Definitely. I would just skip the first step of baking the crust for 10 minutes. Instead, just do the entire bake at 375 degrees (step 6!). Let me know how it turns out!

    This is a great recipe. My husband doesn’t like sweet potatoes and he liked this a lot. I portioned it out and froze some. What do you think a calorie count is? Thanks

      I substituted coconut oil for the ghee and the total calories calculated on My Fitness Pal app said it was 180 calories per serving, total of six servings. That was with using individual spices to make taco seasoning (I like to make my own to control what’s in it). Also specific to my other ingredients such as the lean ground turkey. I may cut it into 4 or 8 servings as well and adjust calories per serving.

    I had this for breakfast everyday last week and it was so good that I’m making it again for next week. I was pleasantly surprised how fully this left me. I eat around 5:20am and wasn’t hungry until after noon-that never happens.

      YES. I am so happy to hear that Laura! It’s definitely one of my favorite breakfast and love the combination of protein, fiber, carbs, and healthy fats!
