We all have those mornings with a hungry stomach and little time to prepare breakfast. Tired of cereal, yogurt, oatmeal, or whatever you eat in those busy times? This frittata can save your day! Whether you make it Sunday night to have for the week or throw it in the oven between calls on the morning of (this is what I did), you have to try this.
*Frittata is basically quiche without the crust, so a healthier version.
Frittatas are so easy that you can customize them to include really whatever you desire. The one I made had sweet ground sausage, spinach, white onion, and cheese.
It's as easy as this:
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F
Brown your sausage meat in a large skillet (I sprinkled mine with garlic and onion powder for extra flavor).
While the sausage browns, heat about 1 tablespoon olive oil in a medium skillet. Add a small chopped onion and sauté until it begins to brown. Add 6 handfuls of pre-washed spinach and leave on heat until soft (it will be dark green and look wet).
Put the vegetable mixture into the sausage skillet.
Whisk in a bowl: 6 eggs, 4 egg whites, 1/3 cup milk, 1 teaspoon garlic powder, 12 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper.
Add shredded cheese (I used Mexican blend) to both the egg mixture and skillet mixture (amount is up to you).
Put the egg mixture into skillet to mix all components.
Spray a square baking dish and fill with the mixture.
Bake until light brown on top, as image illustrates.
Heat whenever desired, or enjoy cold too!
