I love a good frittata!  My hubby got me some gorgeous enameled cast iron pans and this is one of the first meals I tried out with the skillet. It was so yummy!   I think an excellent addition to this recipe would be some diced tomatoes to compliment the spice of the sausage (maybe next time, hubby’s not fond of tomatoes – more for me!).  This recipe makes plenty for a big family or to pack up for leftovers tomorrow, about 8 entree-size servings.

Sausage & Spinach Frittata


  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1/2 medium-sized onion, chopped
  • 1 pound sweet Italian sausage
  • 3/4 cup frozen chopped spinach
  • 17 eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese (divided)
  • salt & pepper to taste

Preheat Broiler

Warm oil in a large cast iron skillet under medium heat.  Add chopped onion & cook until soft.  Remove the sausage from it’s casing (or just buy ground sausage) and chop.  Add to skillet, cook for about 5-6 minutes until meat & onions are brown.

While meat is browning, whisk eggs, milk, 1/2 cup of the shredded cheese, salt & pepper in a bowl

Once the meat & onions are brown, add spinach to the skillet.  Stir for a couple of minutes to warm the spinach

Reduce heat to low & pour egg mixture in skillet. Stir to combine.

Cook until edges are set, about 12-15 minutes (don’t stir the mixture, but occasionally shake the pan a bit to test setting)

Sprinkle additional shredded cheddar cheese on top, then put under the broiler for 5 minutes until golden brown.

Be careful when taking out of broiler!  Refrigerate leftovers
