Italian Sausage Frittata

When you need a delicious dinner that won't break the budget and whips up in a jiffy - this is it! I really like this Frittata. It is very easy to make, oh so yummy, low in carbs, and packed with protein! Definitely a winner!

This month Allrecipes has paired up with Johnsonville Sausage. As an Allstar Ambassador with the Allrecipes program I was tasked with making some Johnsonville recipes from the collection.  

I have tried a couple of different recipes, but this is by far my fave! Although, I must say these Breakfast Muffins are quite delicious as well. The hubs really enjoyed reheating these for a quick bite in the morning!

As a very generous gift, Johnsonville sent each of the Allstar Ambassadors a beautiful set of Sur la table Stoneware Bakers with lids! This is such a beautiful set, and I can't thank Johnsonville enough for their generosity.  

Did you know that Johnsonville Sausage got it's name from the quaint town in Wisconsin where it was founded back in 1945? Yep, Johnsonville, WI is the home of Johnsonville Sausage. It is an old family recipe that became known as the sausage with the Big Taste. Today, the company is still privately owned and is the most popular brand of sausage in the United States!

Thanks so much, Johnsonville!  
I am a new fan of your tasty sausage, and I absolutely love my new bakers!

Italian Sausage Frittata
(my way)

1 (8 ounce) package frozen broccoli, cauliflower, and carrots, thawed
1 tablespoon water
1/2 package Johnsonville Mild Italian Sausage Links prepared according to package directions
and sliced
6 eggs, beaten
1 tablespoon fresh chopped basil
1/4 cup shredded or shaved Parmesan Cheese

In a 10" skillet, cook the sausage according to package directions and set aside. Slice into 1/4" rounds when cool enough to handle. Drain off liquid in skillet and spray with cooking spray. Add vegetables and water and bring to a boil. Cover and cook on medium heat about 3 minutes until heated through. Add cooked sausage, beaten eggs, and basil. Sprinkle with cheese. Cover and cook over mid-low heat 12-15 minutes or until eggs are set. Enjoy!

  3. Found your blog site on the Foodie Blog Roll. I too am a blogger and my site is called Cooking On A Budget. This is just the type of meal that fits into what I try to do - cook as inexpensively as possible but healthy, hearty and filling meals for the family. My photography is not the greatest but as you said, we get the job done! Kudos to you and I wish you success. Visit my site one of these days and follow if you will.
