Sausage Vegetable Frittata from Good Cheap Eats

Next month my brother is getting married. Though he and his fiancee live in Santa Clarita, they’re holding their wedding in Carlsbad, not too far from where we live. He went to college here, and they enjoy vacationing here.

In addition to all the excitement of a wedding and seeing my immediate family, some of my favorite extended family members are coming to town. This means that I get to feed people!

Honestly, feeding people is one of my very favorite things to do. I guess I chose the right career, right?

Between the wedding company and the holidays that are fast approaching, I’m planning yummy meals that will easily feed a crowd without sending my grocery budget into shock. This Sausage Vegetable Frittata is one that definitely makes it onto the list.

This Sausage Vegetable Frittata is so easy to prep, can be made ahead (or even frozen), and tastes great for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Serve it with home fries and a fruit salad for brunch, or add a salad and garlic bread for dinner. It’s so versatile and sure to please the masses.

I’ve made it with both fresh roma tomatoes and with sundried tomatoes (they’re easier to keep on hand). The kids prefer this dish with the fresh tomatoes, while I prefer it with the dried. Tomato, tomato, do what you want.

If you’re making this to freeze, be sure to cool the fillings before adding the eggs. Then freeze the casserole unbaked. The night before you want to serve the frittata, thaw it in the fridge overnight; it will be ready for baking in the morning.

Note: if you want to make this dairy-free, simply omit the cheese.

Also of note: If you make the Sausage Potato Soup I mentioned last week, this is a great dish to prep at the same time. Both contain similar sausage and veggies. Work once and eat twice.

Ingredients
  • 1/2 pound bulk hot Italian sausage
  • 1 medium potato thinly sliced
  • 1/2 onion chopped

  • 1 cup broccoli florets steamed until tender
  • 1 roma tomato chopped OR 1/3 cup julienned, sundried tomatoes
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese optional
  • 9 eggs
  • 2 teaspoon Dijon mustard

Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.

    I’m not a fan of broccoli. How would spinach be?

  2. Kirstin says

    This recipe looks delicious. Do you rehydrate the sundried tomatoes before using them?

  3. Laurna says

    Can I make this the night before ? If so, how would I store it in the fridge?

    • Yep! Just assemble it, cooling the cooked meat and veg before adding the eggs. Then cover and store in the fridge overnight. Bake in the morning, adding a couple minutes if needed to allot for the cold pan.
