I find I do better with protein for breakfast and the easiest way for me to get protein in the morning is eggs. I love making these frittatas because you can make a week’s worth. I enjoy them after a hard sweat and even to snack on. When I invite friends and family over for brunch this is a huge hit!
3 organic chicken sausage links
2 Tbsp of organic low fat milk
3/4 cup of diced red pepper
1 package of chopped organic spinach (thawed out)
5 oz of goat cheese (I use Mackenzie, keeping it local)
First, sauté the sausage until it is done. Then crack the eggs into a bowl, mix really well. Combine all other ingredients and mix thoroughly. Now, spray muffin pan and pour mixture half way into the sections on the pan. Make sure not to overfill, as they will expand. Finally, place the pan in the oven at 350 degrees and cook for 12-15 minutes. Add a dash of salt and pepper to preferred taste.
If you don't do dairy like me I just take eggs, sauté some asparagus tips, spinach, shallots, multicolor peppers, and combine and bake for 12- 15 minutes. Add a dash of salt and pepper as needed. Enjoy!
