Sausage and Kale Frittata

Sausage and Kale Frittata

The Farm Fresh box came last night, and of course, I had to make something with it as soon as possible. I decided to use the Kale in this Frittata for breakfast this morning – although, after I was (of course) committed to it, I realized that this Kale was the sweetest Kale I’d ever tasted – and I really should have saved it to use in a salad (yes, a salad – it was seriously that good!)  At any rate, this Frittata came out excellent – and I couldn’t be happier with the picture really either. (Except for if I figured out how to stop the shadow of the lens to stop showing up in the picture!) This recipe is ideal for a large group (or planned leftovers, which is what I’m doing) As an added bonus, this recipe is dead-easy.

Ingredients:

  • 12 eggs
  • 2 c. Cheddar
  • 1/2 lb Breakfast Sausage
  • 1 bunch of Kale; stems removed and torn in to pieces
  • 1 cup sliced Crimini Mushrooms
  • 4 tbls water
  • 2 tbls Roasted Garlic
  • 1/4 cup Cilantro

Method:

  • Preheat Broiler
  • In a large, oven safe saute pan, brown and crumble the sausage
  • When sausage is completely browned, push to one side to clear an area. Add the mushrooms to the clear area.
  • Saute the mushrooms until tender
  • Add the kale and stir to combine
  • Let that cook, stirring occasionally, until kale turns bright green and becomes tender – 4-5 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, scramble the eggs with the water and roasted garlic.
  • Stir the cilantro in to the egg mixture
  • Pour egg mixture over kale mixture
  • Cook eggs over medium heat until edges is set, but the center is still liquidy
  • Sprinkle the shredded cheese over the top of the eggs
  • Place under broiler. Cook until eggs are set and cheese is lightly browned and bubbly.
