Kale & Sausage Frittata
Frittatas are an easy way to have a nutrient dense breakfast prepared for several days. I don't know about you, but a quick and easy protein-rich breakfast gets me started on the right foot each day.
- 1 tbsp cooking fat
- 1 med. onion diced
- 4 kale leaves destemmed & coarsely chopped
- ¼ cup loosely packed basil chiffonade
- 8 eggs pasture-raised
- ¾ cup bulk pork sausage
- 2 tbsp mizithra cheese grated
- 1 tsp sea salt
- ½ tsp fresh ground pepper
- ½ tsp granulated garlic
- ½ tsp dried oregano
- ½ tsp sage
- ½ tsp dried parsley
Preheat the oven to 350° F.
Melt the cooking fat in a cast iron skillet on medium-high. Rotate to coat the pan.
Add the onions and sauté until just translucent. Add the sausage and cook through using a spatula to break apart the meat.
In a medium bowl, crack the eggs, whisk, and add six seasonings. Stir to combine.
Once the sausage has cooked through, add the kale to the pan and begin to wilt. Then add the eggs. Stir just enough to disperse eggs throughout the pan.
Top with basil and mizithra cheese.
Bake at 350° F for 15-20 minutes or until the eggs have puffed up and solidified. Serve warm - Enjoy!
