It’s Friday! Need some brunch plans for this weekend? Make this easy sausage and broccoli frittata.
Have you ever made a frittata before?
It’s insanely easy and delicious!
Why I Love Frittatas
Fritattas are made of 4 elements: meat/veggies, eggs, cream, and cheese.
They’re great for a quick breakfast, lunch, or dinner.
Fritattas are also great for using up veggies or meat that needs used up. You’ll have a delicious meal and reduce food waste. Win-win.

When I experimented with this frittata last weekend, my husband and I were blown away.
The only reason I chose broccoli and sausage is because it’s what we had leftover. I had leftover sausage after making my Quick Ragu recipe.
Isn’t it great when a dish you threw together turns out fantastic?
Make this sausage and broccoli frittata for a quick brunch, for feeding a crowd, or for a gameday spread.
Sausage and Broccoli Frittata Ingredients
- 1 lb ground sausage
- 2 cups chopped broccoli
- pinch of salt and pepper
- 6 eggs
- 1/4 cup heavy cream
- 1 cup cheddar cheese
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F.
Heat an oven-proof skillet over medium heat. Add sausage to the pan. Using a spoon, ground your sausage in small pieces.
Cook sausage through, about 3-5 minutes.
Add broccoli to the pan and cook for two minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Remove the skillet from heat.
In a large bowl, whisk your eggs. Slowly add in cream to your beaten eggs and stir well.
Then, add your egg mixture to the skillet, pouring slowly and evenly so the broccoli and sausage are evenly covered. Do not mix eggs around – you don’t want to scramble them!
Top skillet with cheddar cheese.
Finally, bake skillet for 8-10 minutes, or until the eggs are fully set and the edges of the frittata are firm. Enjoy!
