- You can make this frittata vegetarian by omitting the sausage.
- Eggs-I prefer pasture raised eggs. This means the eggs are raised on a farm and they are able to freely roam rather than be all cooped up in a chicken coup. How the chickens are raised directly impacts the quality of the eggs they produce. Pasture raised eggs are more nutrient dense.
- Peppers & onions-For flavor. If you are feeling really over zealous here, you can even saute the onions and peppers prior to cooking them in the frittata.
- Breakfast sausage–I love the breakfast sausage from Butcher Box. They have the best quality stuff and it tastes the best too! If you order from my Butcher Box link, you will get free beef with every order!
- Dill-For flavor.
- Cooking oil spray-This will prevent the frittata from sticking to the pan. I like using the avocado oil spray from Costco.

- Tip #1: Be sure to whisk the eggs well throughout so the yolks are broken apart.
- Tip #2: If you have the time and want extra flavor, saute the onions and peppers prior to placing them in the frittata.
- Tip #3: like to broil my frittatas a little at the end to get them nice and crispy on top. This is not a must but could be a fun touch to add.
Yes! Absolutely. If you are vegetarian, you can omit the sausage.
A quiche has a crust to it, a frittata does not have a crust!
