  • Cook and stir sausage and onions in oil in heavy oven-proof 10-inch skillet on medium heat 5 minutes or until light golden brown.

  • Combine remaining ingredients in medium bowl. Stir egg mixture into skillet mixture. Cook on medium heat, lifting with a rubber spatula once or twice, to allow uncooked portion to flow underneath. Cook just until egg mixture begins to set, about 6 minutes.

  • Place skillet in oven. Bake 5 to 7 minutes or until egg mixture is firm to the touch and top is golden brown.

  • Remove skillet from oven. Carefully run a spatula around edge of frittata to loosen from skillet. Invert skillet onto serving platter. Cut frittata into quarters. Garnish each portion with Parmesan cheese and basil, if desired.

We really liked this recipe and it's easy to make. I did use sweet onions in place of the green onions and I added in green peppers to the onion saute. I also used fresh tomatoes in place of the sun-dried. I will probably cut back on the cheeses next time as I think it is just a little too much. Read More

Can't say that we were crazy about this. We thought the smoked turkey sausage tasted more like a frankfurter than what we consider smoked sausage and that was the biggest disappointment. We eat Hillshire Farm Chicken Hardwood Smoked Sausage which I think comes closer to what I consider traditional smoked sausage (that I just don't eat anymore). Don't really mean to bash Butterball but I just compared the nutritional info for these two brands and they're very very close. This all could be taste preference but I just didn't care for this sausage and it's unlikely I'll make this again. Read More

Since we were all going to be eating dinner at different times I elected to make this into a baked frittata. I started the sausage and green onions as directed and when ready I stirred them into the egg cheese tomato basil mixture poured each serving into individual casseroles and baked them at 400F for about 12-15 minutes. We all agreed this was a great combination of flavors. Read More

I really wanted to like this frittata but it was just ok for us. I wasn't blown away by the flavor of the smoked turkey sausage and probably won't buy it again. I was a little concerned about the fact that the recipe doesn't call for any salt in the eggs. For those of you who might have this same concern the cheese and sausage are plenty salty and no extra salt is needed. Read More

I thought this tasted good and I don't typically make frittatas. It seemed to hold together really well with a little extra cook time. So I just cooked it the whole time in the pan flipping it once using a plate. I made a few changes for preference. When I was chopping the meat and green onion both seemed like a lot. So I cut them in half. I am not a fan of fresh basil so I just subbed two good sized pinches of dry basil. It was going to be cooked anyhow. After I got all of my ingredients out and started the recipe I realized I forgot the mozzarella cheese! No problem it still worked out just fine. It did have the parmesan cheese in it. I guess the only downside is it seemed kind of salty. Not sure if it was from the parmesan cheese sausage or both combined together. It would make a fine recipe though to recommend to someone looking for brunch recipes. I found it to be very filling. Read More

I chopped up the sausage and it seemed like a ton of sausage for this so I only used half and it was the perfect amount for me. I also couldn't find the sun dried tomatoes in my grocery store so I just seeded and chopped up some fresh and squeezed them dry between paper towels. I've been told that the sun dried tomatoes really make this dish. Now here comes the tricky party. I mixed everything together and tossed it in the oven. Then I realized I was supposed to cook a little before doing that. Sigh Oh well. Turned out good if you don't mind waiting 1/2 hour - 45 minutes to eat breakfast. Even though this tasted good I really wasn't a fan of the texture and sodium content (as well as a few other ingredients) of the sausage. If I make this again I would leave out the sausage. Read More

2 thumbs up! I made one change and used turkey kielbasa as my grocery store didn't carry the sausage the recipe called for. We loved the Mediterranean twist on this. I made it in my cast iron skillet and the times listed in the recipe were perfect. This is the best frittata we've ever tried. Read More
