Cheesy Egg and Sweet Potato Omelette

Cheesy Egg and Sweet Potato Omelette Recipe - SavvyMom

Cheese is an excellent food for babies. It’s packed with calcium and it provides protein, vitamin A, D, and B12, and can be introduced at around 6 to 9 months. When you combine cheese with eggs and delicious and nutritious sweet potato, you’ve got a delicious omelette your baby will love and you’ll love too. Instead of eating baby’s scraps, you should make one for yourself (there likely won’t be much left over).

TIP: Short on time? Instead of preparing your own sweet potato purée, use a jar or squeeze pouch of baby sweet potato purée instead.

Yield: ¾ cups
Servings: 1 serving
Prep Time: 5 minutes

  • ½ large sweet potato, peeled and diced
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 Tbsp (15 mL) grated cheddar cheese (optional)
  • 1 Tbsp (15 mL) breast milk or formula

Prep and Cook

  • Steam or boil diced sweet potato until very tender
    Drain if necessary and mash or purée until you have your desired consistency

  • In a medium bowl, whisk together egg, 1 Tbsp (15 mL) sweet potato purée, grated cheddar, and formula or breast milk until well combined
  • Heat a small pan over medium heat
    Pour egg and sweet potato mixture in and allow it to cook on one side, about 2 to 3 minutes
