Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Toss butternut squash with olive oil and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper.

  • Spread smoked sausage and butternut squash in a single layer on a sheet tray. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes, until butternut squash is softened and sausage has rendered its fat. Let cool slightly, then transfer to a bowl. Toss with spinach and 1 1/2 cups cheese.

  • Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees F. Coat two 12-cup muffin pans with cooking spray. Divide sausage mixture evenly among muffin cups.

  • In a large measuring cup with spout, whisk together eggs, milk, and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Divide egg mixture evenly among muffin cups, filling to about 1/4 inch below the rim of the cup. Sprinkle remaining 1/2 cup cheese over top.

  • Bake for 18 to 20 minutes, or until eggs are puffed and just set. Cool for 3 minutes, then carefully run a butter knife or small spatula around the edges to help loosen. Once cool enough to handle, turn onto a serving plate.


To freeze, cool frittatas to room temperature. Place in a single layer in a gallon-sized freezer zip-top bag (or storage container). Freeze for up to 1 month. To reheat, place in microwave on high for 1 minute.
