Browning Breakfast Sausage

Breakfast for dinner is one of my family’s favorite traditions. Especially during the school year, brinner makes a weekly appearance in the meal plan. And if it doesn’t, the kids get really disappointed. I started making breakfast for dinner when the kids were young because it was one meal I knew they would always eat. Early in my career as a mother, I realized I did not want picky eaters. And, I didn’t want to be a short order cook in my own kitchen. While always urging the kids to try new things, breakfast (for dinner) is always a meal that requires no encouragement.

Crumbled Sausage, Eggs and Cheese

Brown the Sausage

Frittatas are a great option for a low-carb breakfast. They are just like a quiche without the crust. Frittatas are easy to make keto friendly too. This frittata brings together the classic flavors of a breakfast sandwich without the carb filled muffin. Start by browning some breakfast sausage in an oven-safe, non-stick skillet. Break up the sausage as it cooks into tasty little crumbles. Once, the sausage is browned, drain it on a plate lined with paper towels.

Time for Eggs

While the sausage is browning, mix up eggs with heavy cream and water. Adding the heavy cream is an easy way to up your fat macros. Of course, if you eating low-carb but not necessarily keto, use milk, half-and-half or just water. Whisk the eggs and liquid together, until they are well blended. Or, another fun and easy way to blend the eggs is in a shaker bottle. Normally designed for mixing up powdered drinks like protein shakes, it’s a really fast way to prep eggs for scrambles, omelettes and frittatas.

Easy Frittata with Ricotta

Build Your Frittata

Once you have the sausage crumbles out of the pan, pour the egg mixture into the same non-stick pan. Let the eggs start to cook, but don’t stir them. Once you can see the eggs are partially cooked, add the sausage crumbles back to the pan, sprinkling them evenly over the egg mixture. Finally, dollop spoon fulls of ricotta cheese over the top. The ricotta adds delightful creamy bites to the frittata. Turn off the stove and put the whole pan in the over for 15 minutes at 350°.

Top with Shredded Cheese

After 15 minutes in the oven, take the frittata out and add shredded cheese on top. Bake for another 3-5 minutes until the cheese is melted and the eggs are set. Adding the shredded cheese at the end makes sure you get delicious melty cheese in every bite. As soon as the frittata is done cooking, carefully slide it out of the pan, with a spatula, onto a plate. Let the frittata cool for a few minutes, then slice and serve.
