Equipment

  • Cast Iron Skillet

Ingredients
  

Sausage

  • 1 lb ground pork organic
  • 2 tsp poultry seasoning
  • 1/8 tsp allspice
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp fennel seeds
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/8 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt fine grain

Vegetables

  • 1 cup red onion diced
  • 1 cup mushrooms diced
  • 2 cups spinach or kale stems removed
  • 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes halved

Dairy

  • 9 large eggs

Optional

  • salt and pepper to taste

Fats

  • 2 tbsp coconut oil

Instructions
 

  • Mix all seasonings together and hand mix with ground pork
  • Heat 1 tbsp coconut oil in a cast iron skillet (or any oven-proof skillet)
  • Brown sausage in skillet until cooked through and crumbles. Remove from skillet and set aside. Reserve fat in skillet to sauté vegetables.
  • Add 1 tbsp coconut oil to reserved fat and sauté onions and mushrooms. (This is where I like to add in any other veggies that might need to be used like bell peppers, squash, or zucchini.)
  • Once the vegetables have started to get soft (about 5 minutes), add in the spinach or kale. Sprinkle with sea salt and pop a lid on the skillet. Cook until just wilted (the color should be a bright green).
  • Add back in the sausage. Stir it all together. Move the mixture toward the middle of the skillet to make a trench for the eggs.
  • Scramble 8 of the eggs and pour evenly over the sausage and vegetable mixture. Use a spatula to let the eggs run to the sides of the skillet (they will act as the "crust of the pie").
  • While the eggs are setting, top the frittata with the halved cherry tomatoes. Top with the remaining scrambled egg to cover the tomatoes.
  • Place the pan under the broiler and cook until golden brown.
  • Let cool for about 5 minutes. Run a butter knife around the edge to loosen it. Slice and serve.
