Maple Sausage Frittata Recipe
I love nothing more than good breakfast food. Breakfast truly is my favorite meal of the day and I savor every moment of it. I absolutely insist that we go out for breakfast every Sunday morning. We take our time, connect and enjoy being a family. We try all different sorts of places plus have some of our favorites as well.
I have been experimenting with all sorts of different textures and flavors for breakfast as well. Blueberry Crunchcakes, anyone? I cannot even share the fabulous breakfast I had with you this morning because I am going to recreate it this week.
My husband is a frittata lover. I had no idea what they were until after I met him. I am now a frittata lover as well. You can take so many liberties with ingredients and come up with so many variations. Here is one for you.
MAPLE SAUSAGE FRITTATA
- 6 large cage-free eggs
- ½ cup water (this is a great way to cut down on fat vs using heavy cream).
- 7-8 precooked, all natural maple sausage links.
- 2 cups of cubed multi grain bread
- ½ onion chopped
- 1 small crown of organic broccoli and slices from the peeled stock
- ¼ to ¾ cup of a shape cheese, we used an Irish cheddar
- 2-4 tablespoons of olive oil or butter
- season to taste
- Pre heat the oven to 385 degrees after sautéing the onions.
- Whisk together the eggs and water in a mixing bowl and set aside.
- Using a bit of olive oil and a large pan, sauté the onions, broccoli stock, cut sausage links (into rounds).
- When the onions are cooked through, pre heat the oven and toss in the bread cubes. Cook for about 4-5 minutes, stirring occasionally, then sprinkle the cheese on top and pour the eggs over.
- Reduce the heat to medium low, cover and cook for 4-5 minutes then place in the oven for about 25 to 35 minutes. The cook time will vary depending on the size of your dish and how hot your oven runs.
- You’ll know it is done when it puffs up across the entire top and starts to show signs of light browning on the top. Let rest for a few minutes before serving.
The frittata will deflate almost right after coming out of the oven-don’t worry about that, it’s going to be fantastic!
