Sausage Broccoli and Cheddar Frittata (Keto, Gluten Free)

Kate APosted by

Sausage Broccoli and Cheddar Frittata – I think it’s safe to say that Easter will look very different for most people this year. Instead of a large spread with all of our family and friends, we are doing a brunch at home. Frittatas aren’t that different than our regular breakfast, but something about them is a little extra special. You can use just about any meat and vegetable in your fridge, but this combination is one of my favorites.

I usually make it with raw breakfast sausage, but with the state of the world, all I’ve been able to find is precooked links (check them, many are not keto!). Both are delicious, this recipe is hard to mess up. Just don’t overcook it!

Ingredients

  • ½ lb. breakfast sausage, raw or precooked
  • 1 lb broccoli, chopped
  • 1-2 cups spinach, chopped
  • 4 green onions, diced
  • 10 eggs
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese
  • 3 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp pepper

Directions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Cut up all your vegetables (if you haven’t done it already) and shred your cheese.

If you are using raw breakfast sausage, cook in a large cast iron pan (or oven safe pan) until it’s browned. Spoon the sausage out of the pan and place on a plate to the side. If you’re using precooked, skip to the next step.

Add broccoli, onions and spinach to the pan along with 2 tablespoons of butter. Sauté for 2 minutes on medium, then cover the pan with a lid for 8-10 minutes. You want the broccoli to get tender but not mushy.

Take the lid off, add your sausage, and sauté for an additional 3 minutes.

Meanwhile, whisk the eggs, heavy cream and cheese together in a bowl.

Pour the mixture over the vegetables and sausage. Let it cook for 2-4 minutes, just until the edges are starting to set. Put the pan in the oven and bake 13-16 minutes.

To check to see if it’s done, jiggle the pan and the eggs should not move. If the center is still runny, cook a few additional minutes.

  1. I look forward to making this for breakfast on Monday . . . it’s kinda nice to have a little extra time in the mornings to make a hot, healthy, delicious meal (usually I’m just grabbing a bar on the run!)
