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
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
I really enjoyed this frittata and thought is was more filling than other ones I’ve made. Will definitely make it again.0 Helpful
I subbed half of the eggs for egg whites, and then did hot chicken sausage instead of the sweet apple sausage, and then russet potatoes instead of sweet potato. Turned out well, however I would cook it on a lower temp next time for longer to try to not have such a browned texture on the edges.0 Helpful
This was great - I loved the sweetness the chicken apple sausage added, and it was relatively quick to put together.0 Helpful
We also threw leftover mushrooms and onions into the frittata. Can't really go wrong with a frittata and fresh fruit.0 Helpful
I typically skip the frittatas when they pop up on the menu, but something made me make it this week and WOW! So delicious! I can see this being a staple in my house and is nice enough to be the star of a fancy brunch! Love it!0 Helpful
