I haven’t posted a recipe in a while, but hopefully my recipe-posting frequency will pick up a bit. I have so many recipe ideas, but sometimes I don’t have the ingredients on hand or simply don’t have the time to make a recipe and take relatively pretty photographs. I’ve been feeling rather…inspired?…of late, though, so more recipes should be coming your way. Yay!
When you’re on a Whole30 (like me), simple food is king. Especially when it’s something you can make in bulk and eat throughout the week (planning for the win!). So I love me some frittata! I eat frittatas regardless of whether I’m on a Whole30 or not, actually. They’re just so easy. But for me, this Spinach, Sausage, & Mushroom Frittata is something extra special.
There are quite literally hundreds of different combinations possible for a frittata. Maybe thousands! But I have a relatively simple formula for my frittatas.
2 Veggies + 1 Meat + 10 Eggs
…and that’s a wrap. In the case of this frittata, that means Spinach + Mushroom + Sausage + 10 eggs. Well…and onions, but browned/caramelized onions are pretty much a given in any of my frittatas.
Lots of things go great in a frittata, but I think adding too many things at once ruins a frittata, so keeping it relatively simple makes perfect frittatas almost every time. I pick two veggies that I want in my frittata, throw in a meat (bacon, sausage, ham, ground beef, etc.) and call it good. Ten eggs seems to be the ideal amount for a frittata (for me). I have a LARGE, 12-inch cast iron, and anything less just makes a thin egg pancake. Weird.
Obviously, if you don’t have a behemoth cast iron like me, your cook time will be a little longer, so adjust the recipe as necessary.
Well, I basically just told you my frittata secret, so I don’t really even need to give you a recipe, do I?
I will anyway.
Because I like y’all.
Seriously, feel free to use this recipe as a template for creating your own simple, personally perfect frittata. However, I do think that this frittata is pretty freaking awesome, so I hope you try it out before venturing off on your own fantastical frittata adventures!
