Sausage and Swiss Chard Frittata

Frittatas are so easy to whip up. They are also an opportunity to be creative and clear out your refrigerator all at once.

We received the Swiss chard in our CSA box last week and I had some breakfast sausage in the freezer that I wanted to use up. This frittata was so savory and delicious that my 5 year old asked for a second helping. And even my 3 year old, who was pretty sure she wasn't going to like it, gobbled it up.

Sausage and Swiss Chard Frittata
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • ½ red onion, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 lb sausage, casings removed. Use your favorite variety. I used turkey, breakfast sausage.
  • ½ - 1 full bunch Swiss chard, washed, dried, chopped fine.
  • 6 large eggs
  • ¾ cup Parmesan
  • ½ cup milk
  • 2 Tbsp flour
  • ¼ tsp pepper
  • ¼ tsp salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat and add onion and sausage. Break up the sausage into tiny pieces as it cooks. Cook sausage completely. Add Swiss chard and cover. Cook to wilt in about 3 minutes. Pour sausage mixture into a 9-inch pie plate prepared with non-stick cooking spray.

In a mixing bowl, add the eggs, Parmesan, milk, flour, salt and pepper. Whisk completely. Pour over the sausage mixture in the pie plate.

Bake for 30 minutes or until eggs are set.

I served with a garden salad, fruit and fresh artisan bread.
