BREAKFAST

Light Sausage & Mushroom Frittata


  • 1 Tbsp olive oil

  • 1 red onion, thinly sliced

  • 1 link cooked andouille sausage, diced (Andouille is a smoked, slightly spicy sausage popular in Cajun cooking. If you can't find it, kielbasa makes a fine substitute.)

  • 8 oz mushrooms (any variety—Creminis work nicely), stems removed, sliced

  • Salt and black pepper to taste

  • 8 eggs

  • 1⁄4 cup crumbled goat cheese

  • 12 chives or 3 scallions, chopped (optional)HOW TO MAKE IT

1. Preheat the oven to 375°F.

2. Place a large oven-safe skillet or sauté pan over medium heat.

3. When the pan is hot, add the oil and onion; cook until translucent, about 3 minutes.

4. Add the andouille and mushrooms and continue sautéing, about 5 minutes.

5. Season with salt and pepper.

6. Beat the eggs vigorously with a fork or whisk, then add to the skillet, along with the goat cheese and chives, if using.

7. Place in the oven and bake until the eggs have fully set (a toothpick inserted into the middle will come out clean), about 20 minutes.

8. Let cool and then slice into 4 portions, topping with more chives if you like.
