Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon Olive Oil
  • 2 Shallots chopped (or use 1/3 cup red onions, chopped)
  • 2 Scallions chopped
  • 1 garlic clove finely minced
  • 2 medium size Sweet Mini Peppers chopped (I used red and orange)
  • 1 Roma Tomato diced
  • 2 packed cups baby spinach, chopped (or defrost 1 cup of frozen, squeeze any liquid out)
  • 2 tbsp Milk any on hand
  • Salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 teaspoon Dried Parsley + for garnish
  • EGG MIXTURE:
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 Egg Whites
  • ½ Tbsp. All-purpose flour
  • ¼ tsp. ground black pepper
  • Salt to taste
  • TOPPING:
  • Cheese – I used Mexican Blend but you may use any blend or Mozzarella, Smoked Gouda or perhaps feta cheese.

Instructions

  1. Preheat the over to 375 degrees Fahrenheit
  2. In a skillet or a saute pan add 1-2 teaspoon of olive oil and saute sliced shallots, minced garlic, chopped scallions, diced peppers, and tomato.
  3. Cook for about one minute, stirring frequently, then add chopped spinach, if the spinach is frozen: Place in a colander or strainer, run cool water over the vegetables until thawed, and drain (squeeze water from spinach). Or place the package in a resealable plastic bag, and submerge in cold water until thawed. Add spinach to the skillet or a saute pan and cook for a minute or so.
  4. Add about 2 tablespoons of milk and stir. Any milk on hand.
  5. Add seasoning; Sea salt and ground black pepper to taste, and a teaspoon of dried parsley.
  6. Lightly oil each cupcake cup all around it, then add about a tablespoon full of sauteed veggie mixture.
  7. Mix eggs with eggs whites then add 1/2 Tablespoon of all-purpose flour, or 1 1/2 teaspoons (one and a half teaspoons) of arrowroot starch, potato starch or cornstarch. Add a pinch of salt because you will not need more than that, and 1/4 teaspoon of ground black pepper. Mix everything well to combine.
  8. Now, pour the egg mixture over the veggies leaving just enough room for frittata to rise so do not our eggs all the way to the edge (leave about 1/4 of an inch/ 0.6 cm).
  9. Using a form mix eggs and veggies just a bit to combine.
  10. Add a good sprinkle of shredded cheese on the top and bake for about 25 minutes.
  11. Allow it to cool down for about 2-3 minutes before pulling frittatas out of the cups. You may use a butter knife to go around the cup to separate the frittata from the pan just in case

Sausage and Vegetable Frittata
Yield: Serves 2

Sausage and Vegetable Frittata

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes

When it comes to breakfast or brunch Frittata is my go-to meal. It's easy for you to make, affordable so you can feed your whole family on a budget and so delicious.

Ingredients

  • 4-6 large eggs, mixed
  • 1/2 tbsp. Oil
  • 1 tbsp. unsalted Butter
  • 1/4 pound Italian Sausage, sauteed (casing removed)
  • 2 Scallions, chopped, reserve some of the green parts for garnish
  • 4 Mushrooms, sliced
  • 1/2 Green Pepper, diced
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • 3 tablespoons Heavy Whipped Cream
  • 1/2 cup Shredded Mozzarella Cheese

Instructions

  1. Heat a skillet, until almost smoking point then drizzle a bit of oil coating the bottom of the frying pan or a skillet.
  2. If the sausage is in casting, remove it and add the sausage into the skillet. Break it into small pieces and cook until cooked through, about 5 minutes on medium high. Remove the sausage from the skillet and onto a plate.
  3. In the skillet add butter, allow it to melt then add chopped green onions, saute for a few seconds, and add sliced mushrooms as well as green pepper.
  4. Allow it to cook for about 2-3 minutes on medium-high heat then put the cooked sausage back to the skillet and mix it all together. Season it with a pinch of kosher salt and black pepper. Stir well to coat.
  5. Meanwhile, mix eggs until they are combined, then add heavy whipped cream and just a pinch of salt. Mix it well until well combined.
  6. Pour the egg mixture into the skillet over the sausage mixture, and let it cook for a couple of minutes on the stove top.
  7. You may flip it on the other side and add cheese, OR preheat a broiler on high and cook under broiler for about 30-40 seconds. Make sure 1. That you have Oven SAFE skillet or frying pan. 2. Watch it so the frittata does not burn because it is under the broiler and it will bake fast.
  8. After 30-40 seconds, take the frittata out and add cheese. Put it back in the oven again for another 30-40 seconds or until the cheese is melted.
  9. Take it out of the oven when the cheese is bubbly and completely melted.
  10. Garnish frittata with those reserved green parts of scallions and serve hot and immediately!

Notes

  • You may use milk instead of whipped cream.
  • you can use ground beef instead of Italian sausage.
  • If you dislike mushrooms please omit. You may use whatever you wish in the frittata.
  • Provolone cheese or mild cheddar might work well in the frittata.
  • Use as many eggs as you can eat. I usually go by two per person but that all depends. I like adding one extra because my husband or my boys love eggs.
