Make

  1. Preheat oven to 400F (204C) degrees.
  2. Heat up a skillet over medium heat. Add in cooking oil and then onions to heated oil with a dash of salt. Saute for about ~5 minutes, until softened. Next add in mushrooms and chard stems, and cook for another 3 to 5 minutes, to let mushrooms soften.
  3. Add in chard leaves and toss through to let the heat wilt the chard. Pour in egg mixture and layer in sausage. Stir to mix everything through and then transfer to oven. Cook for 18 to 22 minutes, until a knife comes out cleanly.
  4. Toss dressing with mixed greens. Season to taste with more salt and pepper. Serve with your frittata!

I'd reduce the onion a bit, and chop it smaller

I ended up using sour cream instead of yogurt, but it worked. My kids didn't really like it, but the adults did.

The one thing I'll do differently next time is put some Hatch chilis or green chilis in it. It needed a little "kick".
