Active: 25 min Total: 40 min
Broccoli and sausage make a great combination for a weeknight frittata. Enjoy the leftovers for breakfast!
Smarts: Frittatas freeze well so if you make two, you can always leave one as a back-up in the freezer.


Broccoli and Sausage Frittata:
  • Broccoli - 1 lb , chopped
  • Basil (opt) - 4 sprigs , chiffonaded
  • Eggs - 8 , whisked
  • Coconut milk - 1/4 cup
  • Oil, cooking - 1 Tbsp
  • Italian sausage, uncooked - 10 oz
Side Salad with Paprika-Spiced Vinaigrette:

  • Mustard, Dijon - 2 tsp
  • Maple syrup - 2 tsp
  • Oil, cooking - 3 Tbsp
  • Tomatoes, cherry or grape - 1 cup
  • Mixed greens - 5 oz

  1. Heat oven to 400F (or 204C) degrees.
  2. Heat an oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat. Add cooking oil, and then onions and sausage to heated oil (if you like spice, you can also add some red pepper flakes here). Break sausage up and cook until brown on the outside, 3 to 5 minutes. Drain all but 1.5 tbsp (or 22 ml) of fat out of the pan (discard in the trash and not down the sink to avoid clogging).
  3. Next fold in broccoli and then pour in whisked eggs. Transfer to oven and bake for 18 to 22 minutes, until a knife comes out cleanly.
  4. While frittata is baking, make vinaigrette by whisking paprika, red wine vinegar, Dijon mustard, maple syrup, and cooking oil (double if making tomorrow’s dinner). Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  5. Toss vinaigrette with tomatoes and mixed greens when frittata is ready. Enjoy frittata with your side salad.
