Baked Broccoli and Sausage Frittata



From the kitchen of One Perfect Bite...I've reached an age where I accept but no longer embrace change. I can't deny it. This evening was spent composing a post using the "new" blogger interface. Ever known for tact and grace, I promise you'll find no negativity here, but I suspect you've also noticed that no red lanterns or fireworks accompanied my post tonight. I'm guessing technical issues are driving force behind this change and experience has taught me that opinions, solicited or not, won't change decisions that have already been made. So, before I stow my thoughts and bite my tongue, I want to pass a caution on to you. If you haven't looked at the interface do so before you have to. It will take some getting use to and April is nearly here. 'Nuff said, it's time to cook.

I've been experimenting with egg recipes that will make easy work of serving breakfast or brunch to a crowd. I settled on an oven-baked frittata that is versatile and almost effortless to make. Vegetables used in its construction can be swapped with favorites of your own and if you like cheese, by all means add it. I've kept ours simple by design. This recipe can be doubled if you are feeding a gang. The base recipe has some heat, but if you want to spice it up feel free to do so. I like this well enough to make it part of our Easter brunch. I hope those of you who are looking for new egg recipes will give this one a try. Here's the recipe.


Baked Broccoli and Sausage Frittata...from the kitchen of One Perfect Bite

Ingredients:
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 cup chopped onion
1 pound of bulk breakfast sausage
2 teaspoons minced garlic
1 medium jalapeno, finely chopped or 1 teaspoon hot pepper sauce(i.e Tabasco)
1 (12-oz.) bag broccoli crowns, blanched and coarsely chopped
10 large eggs
3 tablespoons milk
1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon fresh ground pepper

Directions:
1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Liberally grease a 9 x 13-inch pan with oil.
2) Saute onion in oil over medium-high heat until soft and translucent, about 5 minutes. Lightly season with salt and pepper. Add sausage to pan and cook until lightly brown, about 5 minutes.Add broccoli to pan and cook for 2 minutes. Stir in garlic and jalapeno and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute longer. Scrape mixture into prepared baking pan and set aside.
3) Add milk, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper to eggs and whisk vigorously until smooth. Pour eggs over mixture in baking pan.
4) Bake, uncovered, until eggs are set, about 25 to 30 minutes.Remove from oven and serve immediately. Yield: 6 servings.

This looks yummy. I have a ridiculous amount of chorizo in the freezer I need to use up. I might just replace the sausage with the chorizo. Yum!

Your frittata looks fantastic,dear!Blessings!

I guess I'd have to adjust the ingredients down as I'd be making it for just two. But no matter. And something tells me I'd get a kick out of doing it with cauliflower. And, for me, definitely cheese. It's beautiful.

Blond Duck said...

I've always wanted to try a friatta.

Kim said...

I also love to do things the way I get use to them! This frittata looks really good, it's perfect for a light super or for lunch!

Kavi said...

Baked frittata! The idea is too good! I'm still new to the frittata concept. :)

And I still haven't gotten used to the new interface! Its so not good! :| I hope they revert back to the old one. But like you said, the decision has been made.

Jenn said...

I was afraid that was going to happen with the new interface! UGH.. I'm sorry, I dislike change like that! lol Especially when something seems to be working just fine as it is! Oh well.. not worth fighting that tide I guess :) Thanks for the warning!

The frittata looks great! I always say I don't like frittatas, but every time I actually see a post for one, I want one!!

This is a dish that is just up my alley. Being Spanish we always make the Spanish version, but this is a new one for me....

Chiara Giglio said...

Thanks for a frittata recipe that bakes in a 9X13 pan - I've been looking for one for a while. And thanks for the heads up on the new blogger interface. I've been in complete denial, as previous "enhancements" have not really impressed me ...

Rita said...

I am NOT impressed with the new Blogger; that is why I keep looking at Wordpress and wonder; should I quit or move?
That is one great frittata and with broccoli.

Sarah Toasty said...

Haha I won't lie, kind of into the new layout! It made going back to add tags to my posts a whole lot easier!

As for the frittata, gorgeous! I love the broccoli peeking out of the side! Will definitely have to attempt this for a girlie brunch!

I love frittata, it makes you eat lot of veggies and cheese and is so healthy for breakfast or brunch with a side.

Here I am in happy oblivion as to what "blogger interface" is doing or, even, what it is. I guess I'd better find out. In the meantime, I do know what this recipe is--delicious. I'm always looking for tasty brunch dishes for a crowd and will file this under brunch/easy!

Thanks!

Best,
Bonnie

This looks really good. I wish I could eat eggs. I will make this for the Mr. though and maybe steal a bite or two.

I don't know what Blogger interface I'm actually using! I guess I should find out . . .

Anyway, nice recipe. I love frittatas - one of my favorite quick dinners. And such a great way to use veggies (and leftovers). I often make mine entirely in a frying pan - cook the veggies & other stuff, add the egg mixture and cook on top of the stove for a minute, then pop in the oven to finish cooking. But the baking method does give terrific results. Nice post - thanks.

Amalia said...

I've never made a frittata before, but they look delicious and really easy to make! I love that you can use practically anything in your refrigerator to make one. It's a great dish if you want to use up your leftovers. This one looks great, I love broccoli and I love sausage so this is definitely my kind of frittata :)

David said...

Mary, We've never made a frittata before... It sounds easy enough and I like the combination of ingredients that you used! This would be one way for me to get my wife to eat her veggies... Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

Chelsea said...

This sounds like an incredible breakfast! I've never made frittata- it looks fantastic! Don't worry, you'll get used to the new interface quickly! I actually like it a lot now!

mr. pineapple man said...

yum yum!!! and the yoghurt cake below looks delicious too!

Renee @ MyKitchenAdventures said...

Oh boy, I am right there with you when it comes to change...I saw they were changing their interface, but elected to not bother with checking it out until I needed to deal with it...but you have convinced me I should take some time to deal with it. Unfortunately, I find when things are changed to fix issues, you end up with a slew full of new issues to deal with...sigh...and so it goes. It's free..so I don't complain too much!

Love frittatas! Then again...love eggs!

Ginny said...

This breakfast dish has everything in it, looks so good and so nourishing!!! Very pretty, too!

Odie Langley said...

Looks so easy and good, we will surely be trying this one out. Thanks

I've been using the new interface for a while and it took a bit of getting used to...but I think I actually like it better now! Mmm this frittata sounds good! i'm a HUGE fan of the broc/sausage combo!

GLENDA CHILDERS said...

Yes, change of any sort, requires courage. (Maryanne Radmacher) I had to learn so much to begin blogging and don't want to learn more. :-)

I love egg dishes and the more veggies the better. Thanks for this recipe.

The Harried Cook said...

Oh I know what you mean by the new blogger interface! I'm still finding my way around it...

I love frittatas for breakfast! I think I am going to try your recipe soon :) Thanks for sharing, Mary!

Tanna at The Brick Street Bungalow said...

Oh, Mary. Now I'm nervous about changes in store... changes I have preferred to pretend would not come.

Just catching up today and I can see so many great recipes that I need to try, especially this frittata! blessings to you and yours ~ tanna
