Recipe: Sheet-Pan High Protein Breakfast Frittata

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 head broccoli, cut into bite-sized florets
  • 1-pint cherry tomatoes
  • 8-ounces cremini mushrooms, quartered, optional
  • ½ - ¾ pound uncooked mild Italian sausage, casings removed
  • 12 eggs
  • 1/3 cup Greek yogurt (plain)
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup grated cheese, optional

 

Pre-heat the oven to 425°F. Dry veggies well. Line a half sheet-pan with parchment paper (cut it long enough to come up the edges of the pan). Place the broccoli, tomatoes, and mushrooms on the sheet pan. Toss with 2 tablespoons of the oil and 1/4 teaspoon of the salt. Spread the veggies out. Roast for 20 minutes.

In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, yogurt, remaining 1/4 teaspoon of salt, and the pepper. Set aside.

Sauté the raw sausage in a skillet with a drizzle of oil, breaking it up into bite-size pieces with a spatula until it begins to brown. Transfer to a bowl, drain excess fat, and set aside.

Remove veggies from oven and stir. Reduce oven temperature to 375°F. While the sheet-pan is hot, add the sausage and spread out evenly with the veggies. Pour the egg mixture over the top (carefully so it doesn’t seep under parchment). Sprinkle the cheese (optional) evenly over the top.

Bake for 25 minutes, or until the eggs have set and the top is golden. Cool briefly then slice into squares. Transfer leftovers to an airtight container and store in the fridge for up to 4 days.

 

  • Freezer-friendly: Cool completely, slice into single servings and store individually in freezer-safe containers for up to 3 months. Thaw overnight in the fridge, then microwave until warm.
  • Dairy-free: use plain, dairy-free yogurt, skip the cheese
  • Vegetarian: skip the sausage and use 1 cup grated cheese, divided: ½ cup in the egg mixture and ½ cup sprinkled on top
