Equipment

Ingredients

  • 6 eggs
  • 1/2 lb. breakfast sausage links
  • 2 cups broccoli florets
  • 1/2 red onion
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil⠀
  • salt & pepper⠀ to taste

Instructions

Prepare the Vegetables & Eggs

  • Slice the onion and chop the broccoli into bite sized pieces, removing any large stems.
  • Crack the eggs in a bowl and whisk together. ⠀

Cook the Frittata

  • Over medium heat, cook the sausage, onions, and broccoli in a medium skillet, turning occasionally, until the sausage is browned and the broccoli is slightly softened, about 3 minutes. Remove them and set them aside. Remove the sausages and slice them into bite sized pieces, then stir the sausage back into the skillet.
  • Turn your broiler on.
  • Drizzle the olive oil over the veggies and sausage, and pour the eggs on top. Gently pull the eggs away from the sides of the pan with a spatula as it cooks, letting the eggs fill in the spaces. Repeat until it becomes too cooked to fill easily. ⠀
  • Cover the skillet and cook on very low heat for about 4 minutes, until mostly cooked through. Finish it under the broiler for about 1-2 minutes until cooked through.
  • Slide the frittata out of the pan and slice. Season with a little flakey salt and pepper and enjoy!⠀

Notes

My favorite sea salt is Jacobsen, and my favorite sugar-free sausage links are Naked Bacon.
