Buffalo Chicken Frittata
Ingredients
  • 2 tablespoons ghee or clarified butter
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1 large sweet potato, peeled and shredded
  • salt and freshly-ground black pepper
  • 8 large eggs, well beaten
  • 1/2 cup ghee or clarified butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup Louisiana-style hot sauce
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons white vinegar
  • 1 clove garlic, finely minced
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 cups cooked chicken, diced
  • 1/3 cup Dairy-Free Ranch Dressing
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
  2. Melt the 2 tablespoons of ghee over medium heat in a large, oven-proof skillet and cook the onion until it begins to soften, 2 or 3 minutes. Add the shredded sweet potato to the pan and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Continue cooking, stirring frequently, until the sweet potato begins to soften and lightly brown, about 5 minutes.
  3. Remove the pan from the heat and pour the beaten eggs evenly over the sweet potato/onion mixture. Place in the oven and bake 20 minutes, or until a knife inserted in the center of the frittata comes out clean.
  4. While the frittata is cooking, whisk together the melted ghee, hot sauce, vinegar, garlic and salt in a small saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a simmer and add the cooked chicken; stir, reduce the heat to low and continue to simmer, stirring occasionally, until the frittata comes out of the oven.
  5. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the chicken from the hot sauce and spread evenly over the surface of the frittata. Drizzle with extra buffalo sauce, if desired, and the dairy-free ranch dressing; serve.
