Hash Brown Frittata with Sausage and Cheese
and fruit salad
Smarts #1: If your frozen hash browns are unseasoned, be sure to add some additional salt and pepper as the hash browns cook.
Smarts #2: Dicing the cheese (instead of grating) gives you a pocket of melty cheese in every bite. Feel free to grate it (or buy pre-shredded) though if it will save you time.
- Sausage, preferably chicken apple sausage - 12 oz, chopped
- Cheese, cheddar - 4 oz, diced
- Eggs - 8
- Milk - 3 Tbsp
- Salt - 1/2 tsp
- Black pepper - 1/4 tsp
- Oil, cooking - 1 Tbsp
- Baby spinach - 5 oz
- Frozen hash browns - 8 oz
- Fresh fruit, any mix - 1 lb, chopped (use your favorites for fruit salad)
- Heat oven to 425F / 218C.
- Heat a 10.5” to 12” (26 cm to 30 cm) oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat. Add oil and then spinach with some salt. Saute until spinach is wilted, 3 to 4 minutes. Set spinach aside.
- Return pan to heat and add sausage. Saute until sausage is golden brown, 5 to 7 minutes.
- To sausage, add hash browns. Saute for 5 to 7 minutes until hash browns are broken up and defrosted. If using unseasoned hash browns, be sure to season them at this point with some salt and pepper.
- Pour eggs over sausage and hash browns and add in cheese and spinach. Stir to combine ingredients.
- Bake frittata for 18 to 25 minutes. (Frittata is done when eggs are set and a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.)
- While frittata bakes, chop and combine fruit for fruit salad.
- Slice frittata and serve with fruit on the side. Enjoy!
Everyone loved it! The Apple chicken sausage added a sweet touch that really worked.1 Helpful
I made this with impossible sausage and added some poultry seasoning when cooking the hash browns it was so good and kid approved even with "that green stuff." =D0 Helpful
I doubled this one for a group of people. If I were to do that again, I’ll make 2 separate frittatas because it took an hour to bake in the Dutch oven. It’s really good though! I’ll definitely make it again.0 Helpful
This frittata was way more filling than expected, so I had way too much leftover and had to freeze it...but now I'm wondering if it will unfreeze well. I guess we'll see! But in the future, I'd definitely half what I'm going for - so if I want 4 portions, I'd go with the 2 portion recipe.0 Helpful
Think I would make this as a scramble or omelet next time.0 Helpful
We used Impossible sausage in a tube - yum! As a family of three, our leftovers will take care of two school-day breakfasts. Don’t hold back on fresh pepper with unseasoned hash browns.0 Helpful
Eggs stuck to the pan, so cleaning after dinner ended up being kind of a pain. Didn’t have a lot of berries, so mixed what we had with some vanilla yogurt and that worked out well. Whole family enjoyed this one.0 Helpful
