Frittatas are one of my go-to weeknight meals. Not only do they bring me back to lazy weekend brunches, but they are also easy to throw together using whatever is in your fridge. And another plus? Eggs are cheap at Aldi and we are in the middle of a bathroom remodel – so cheap is good!
This frittata has an Italian spin with Italian sausage and herbs. I plan on serving this with marinara drizzled on top and a simple spinach salad on the side. And of course some crusty bread.
4 egg whites
4 whole eggs
1 link Italian sausage, chopped
1/4 cup red onion, sliced thin
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1 teaspoon fresh basil, chopped
1 roma tomato, sliced
salt & pepper to taste
Pre-heat your oven to 400 degrees.
In a bowl, whisk together eggs and seasoning. Set aside.
In your 8-inch skillet, cook Italian sausage thoroughly. Add red onion and cook until just softened. Arrange sausage and onion evenly in the skillet and slowly pour over egg mixture. Cook on medium heat until edges begin to set, about 5 minutes. Carefully place tomato slices on the top of the eggs.
Place skillet in the oven and bake for eight to 10 minutes, or until center is cooked through.
Slice and serve with a simple spinach salad and toast!
