Easy and Delicious Sausage Frittata

Sometimes the simplest of recipes are the best crowd pleasers and this frittata was a home run in our house!  Rowan, Jaden, and Coby all voted this “The Best Frittata Ever” so therefore, I must share it with all of you. It’s way too easy by the way, so no need to even fully wake up before you read and make this meal.

Easy and Delicious Sausage Frittata

1 pound mild Italian sausage (we used our fresh pork in the freezer from our recent half a hog purchase that I mention in my Basil Pork Burger post but also check out US Wellness Meats for quality sausage options!)

1 medium sweet potato, peeled and grated

4 green onions, diced

10 eggs

3 tablespoons coconut oil

Pepper to taste

1. In a large oven proof skillet, heat the coconut oil over medium heat.

2. Crumble in the sausage (remove from casing if necessary) and brown.

3. Add the shredded sweet potato and cook until the potatoes are tender.

4. Add the diced green onion and saute together with the sausage and sweet potatoes for another 2-3 minutes.

5. Evenly spread the sausage mixture over the bottom of the pan. Whisk together the eggs, and pour evenly over the meat, sweet potato, and green onion mixture. Sprinkle all over with black pepper.

6. Cook for about 3 minutes or until bubbly and you can see that the edges of the frittata are almost done.

7. Transfer to the oven and cook under the broiler on low until the frittata is cooked all the way through.

As always, enjoy!

      Hi Sarah! Last of the directions in the blog:

      7. Transfer to the oven and cook under the broiler on low until the frittata is cooked all the way through.

      • Sarah says

        All ovens vary as far as broiler temp so just watch it and make sure the top doesn’t burn. If you jiggle the pan and the eggs are set and don’t jiggle then you are good to go. Won’t take longer than about 4-5 minutes!

    This looks so easy and so delicious… and I found it just in time for my grocery shopping tomorrow! I’ve been wanting to make a fritatta lately. Thanks a bunch. Adding you in my Google Reader now! :)

    Just added you to my google reader as well :) I bought all ingredients for this last night. I couldn’t wait to get up this morning to try this out, only to realize I didn’t own an oven safe skillet, bummer. Can’t wait to try it out!

    • Sarah says

      You can still make it!! Just follow the directions up until you put it in the oven. Instead, make sure the heat on your burner is on low, cover the skillet with a lid and it will still cook, just takes a little bit longer!!

    I am new to your blog and to Paleo. Just landed here from a dear friend who has your cookbook. Thank you for the recipes. I will be trying this one next week.

    BTW: I love the Print/PDF button. Great idea. How did you get it there? Thank you again.

    Despite my initial hesitation about putting sweet potatoes with eggs, I must say this was really quite delish. I didn’t have green onions so used regular ones, diced and sautéed. I also just made it was a scramble because who wants to wait that long for it to cook in the oven? (not me, obviously! :) )

    Thanks for the keeper!

    I made this and it was absolutely delicious! I wonder what would be something good to substitute for the sweet potato, taste-wise. I fed it to a family member who is very sensitive to starches and due to the sweet potato, they got a headache. Otherwise they loved it too, though!

  6. Lizenne says

    I made this tonight and it was a HIT!! So delicious AND to make things better, my 5 yr old could not stop eating it!!! :) This recipe is definitely going in my recipe book! Thank you so much!

  7. Mary Anne says

    Hoy cow!! I just made this, my first frittata ever, and my God, it’s SO GOOD!!! So easy, and honestly, I cannot believe how it was. :) Thank you so much!!

  8. Richard Long says

    Wow. That looks delicious. I was under the impression however that this website might have “easy” recipes. This is about as far from an easy recipe as entire thanksgiving feast. Maybe if Paleo meals didn’t take an hour to prepare more people would eat right.

  9. Charlene Ealy says

    I love this recipe! I make it about 3 times a month. This last time I made it I cooked some bacon with the sausage. Delicious!

      It’s there, 1lb mild Italian sausage. I had written the title twice on accident so the title was above and below the first ingredient, so it looked weird, thanks for catching that – all fixed now!

    My boyfriend and I decided to try going Paleo (after each of us gaining 45 pounds..yikes!) We just made this frittata tonight because we have an early morning tomorrow and we caved and had to try it. It was delicious!! He says he could eat it everyday. Woohoo!!

    I made this today (prepping for the week). Of course I had to sample!! Real good. One word of caution…if your pan is too hot the veggies will burn making the frittata bitter. Guess how I know. Yeah…patience is NOT my middle name.

    Even “crispy” it was great.

    Any idea what the calorie count is, by chance? Let’s assume there are 5 servings (10 eggs. 2 eggs per serving).

    I substituted zucchini for the sweet potato and it turned out great! I like eggs but can’t really eat them plain everyday so this is a great alternative. Thanks!

  13. Diane says

    Made this for brunch for a crowd – put in a 9×13 greased pan – it was a hit. I baked at 350′ for about 40 minutes. Thanks for the recipe!

  14. Cindy says

    I want to try this – my son hates sweet potatoes because they are… sweet! My older daughter loves them (thinking sweet potato tater tots & fries). Are the sweet potatoes “sweet” in this dish? Or more savory?
