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! Β 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!

    Dinner tonight!!! Yum!! TFS!!!

  3. Matt Hunt says:

    Man does that look good! Unfortunately, I do not have any sausage so im going to use ground beef πŸ™‚

  4. Sarah says:

    What temp is the oven and “approximately” how long in the oven?

    1. Sarah says:

      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.

      1. 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!

  5. 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! πŸ™‚

    1. Sarah says:

      Awesome, thank you!

  6. Sharon says:

    How many does this frittata serve?

    1. Sarah says:

      4-5 depending on how hungry you are! : )

  7. Mark Eric says:

    Just added you to my google reader as well πŸ™‚ 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!

    1. 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!!

  8. Melissa says:

    Delicious!!! I substituted mushrooms for the sweet potato. Very good.

    1. Sarah says:

      So glad you liked it!!

  9. That looks fantastic! I will definitely give it a try. I also try to share the paleo idea a bit over in my food posts. Look forward to trying your recipes!

  10. 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.

  11. Sarah says:

    Are Frittatas good reheated in the microwave?

  12. 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 sautΓ©ed. 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! πŸ™‚ )

    Thanks for the keeper!

  13. Megan says:

    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!

    1. John C says:

      I think shredded zucchini would make a nice substitute.

  14. 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!!! πŸ™‚ This recipe is definitely going in my recipe book! Thank you so much!

  15. Adrianne says:

    I made this yesterday. I was a bit sceptical of the sweet potato but man, oh, man! This is Super good!

  16. 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. πŸ™‚ Thank you so much!!

  17. 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.

  18. 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!

  19. Rob - @formerfatguy says:

    I love seeing “10 eggs” and “12 eggs” in your recipes. Refreshing

  20. elizabeth lewis says:

    I don’t see sausage listed in the ingredients ….

    1. 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!

  21. Melissa says:

    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!!

  22. Linda Chin says:

    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).


  23. Sarah says:

    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!

    1. Sarah says:

      So glad you liked this and great idea with the zucchini!

      1. Renee Huff says:

        I started today and this was my first dish! Absolutely fabulous! I used turkey breakfast sausage, and I added green and red bell peppers! Thank you.

  24. Jordan says:

    For sure the best breakfast dish I made so far! Thanks for the idea!

  25. Stephanie says:

    Soooooo yummy!!!!! My super picky 6 year old loved it too!

  26. 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!

    1. Pamela says:

      How many people are your websites reciepes meant to serve? No indication but I know it’s not for,1!



      1. Typically will feed 3-5 people. πŸ™‚

  27. Anabelle says:

    Hi! Is it possible to omit the green onions? Thank you! πŸ™‚

    1. Yes, of course!! Enjoy!

  28. 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?

    1. I find them to be more savory since they are cooked with the meat and spices. I hope you all enjoy the dish! We love it! πŸ™‚

  29. Shari Weston says:

    Hi, can’t wait to make this but was curious how many days it will keep in the fridge and the best way to reheat? Thanks
