Good Morning! Looking for a delicious and filling breakfast to start your day? This Sausage and Veggie Frittata is amazingly good! It’s loaded with lots of veggies, eggs and pork sausage from a local farm. I am starting the Whole3o program with the help of my neighbor and friend, Amy. She is the one that asked me to do it and I reluctantly said yes. It’s basically eating all natural foods and no sugar or processd foods. There is so much more to it and if you are interested I recommend reading all about Whole30 here.
I love breakfast food anytime of the day and I love cooking in my cast iron skillet! I think the cast iron just gives the food a much better flavor. For this frittata, I used spinach, white onion, red bell pepper, cremini mushrooms, eggs and pork sausage from a local farm. Cooking with local ingredients really is the best and if you have them available to you, I highly recommended using them!
This frittata is dairy free, gluten free and low carb. It can be served hot or cold and makes great leftovers. Isn’t it pretty and colorfully?! Plus it tastes awesome!
- 1 cup pork sausage
- 1 Tbsp coconut oil
- ¼ cup chopped white onion
- 2 cups baby spinach
- ½ cup cremini mushrooms
- ½ cup chopped red bell pepper
- 4 eggs
- 2 Tbsp almond milk
- 1 tsp sea salt
- Preheat over to 350 degrees. In a 8 inch cast iron skillet brown pork sausage over medium heat. Remove from skillet and drain.
- Add the coconut oil to the skillet and saute the onion, spinach, bell pepper and mushrooms until soft. Add the sausage back to the skillet.
- In a separate bowl whisk eggs, almond milk and salt.
- Add the egg mixture to the skillet and cook 3-5 minutes until the bottom of the frittata has set.
- Place the skillet into the oven and bake 10-15 minutes. Once cooked through turn the broiler on and cook an additional 2 minutes.
- Skillet will be extremely hot so be careful when serving.
I just recently bought the book about Whole30 called It Starts With Food. It really is a good read and it helps you understand the science behind whole and process foods. Along with some pretty yummy recipes. I know this program will be hard but SO worth it in the end.
Have you ever tried the Whole30 program?
