Tuna, Sweet Potato and Corn Frittatas

Tuna, Sweet Potato and Corn Frittata

Mmm, I always love the smell and look of fluffy frittata whenever I patron cafes in the city. Recently I stumbled on this recipe on and I knew I had to try it. With the increasing number of canned tuna in my pantry (all fault goes to my other half – he loves buying tuna when it’s on $1 sale), I knew I had to do something with his tuna hoarding behaviour. Also, tuna is rich in Omega 3 fats so once in a while I do persuade myself to eat some tuna whenever possible – though I dislike the smell of it when eaten directly from the can. It is weird that I can withstand fishiness of normal seafood but not canned tuna.

In this recipe I made use of 6 large muffin pan and the recipe was just nice for it. Because of the larger size of the muffin pan, I had to bake it twice as long (approx. 40 minutes) so that the frittata is fully cooked through.
