This frittata recipe came about because my dear hubby was building me a bookcase for my new home office over Memorial Day weekend, and I wanted to make him something for breakfast that was different from our usual eggs, but I didn’t want to take the time to make omelettes either. So I looked in the fridge to see just what I had on hand and came up with this. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

Servings 6 Large Servings


  • 3/4 Pound Loose Sausage I used sweet Italian
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Granulated Garlic
  • 1 Medium Onion diced
  • 1 1/2 Cups Fresh Broccoli finely chopped
  • 1/4 Cup Fresh Mushrooms finely chopped
  • 1/8 Cup water
  • 1 Cup Fresh Spinach roughly chopped
  • 1 Cup Sharp Cheddar Cheese finely shredded and divided
  • 10 Large eggs
  • 1/2 Cup Milk of your choice I used Almond Milk
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • In a large well seasoned cast iron skillet or oven safe saute pan, brown sausage, add onions, granulated garlic and mushrooms. Saute until onions are soft.
  • Add chopped broccoli and water. Cover and steam until broccoli turns a bright green and is slightly tender, and water has evaporated. About 3-4 minutes.
  • Add in chopped spinach and stir to mix and slightly wilt.
  • Once spinach is wilted, pour all of the contents of the skillet into a large bowl and place in the freezer for about 5 minutes to chill. So that it doesn't curdle your eggs when added to the eggs.
  • In a separate bowl whisk eggs and milk together, along with salt and pepper and add to cooled sausage mixture.
  • Pour everything back into the skillet and bake for 30 minutes, or until you can shimmy the skillet and the center of the frittata just barely moves. Don't over bake.
  • Remove from oven and cool for 5 minutes. Be careful the skillet will be very hot.


You could easily use leftover vegetables in your frittata. You could also switch out the sausage for bacon or ham.
