Individual Frittatas with Jimmy Dean Sausage Crumbles Recipe

This morning I was so busy that I didn’t take time for breakfast. By late morning I was starving, but I’m counting calories and didn’t want to overdo it. What to do, what to do? I decided I do brunch. And frittatas are perfect for brunch.

I’m also eating a high protein diet at the moment, so I thought a frittata would be perfect. I love frittatas but tend to eat too much when I make it.

Ah, individual frittatas.

Yes, individual frittatas are perfect for portion control. I can refrigerate them for up to 3 days, or even better, freeze them and just get out what I want for breakfast, brunch, or just a good protein snack after my workouts.

I also love sausage. Yum. And Jimmy Dean Sausage Crumbles are becoming a staple in my home… check out my Bow Tie Pasta with Jimmy Dean Sausage Crumbles in a Tomato Cream Sauce I made a few weeks ago. They’re already pre-cooked so all you have to do is add them to your favorite recipes.

Can you say, “Time-saver?” As a busy mom, I can use all the time saving I can get. Okay, back to the frittatas….

With the eggs and the sausage, I’m getting a good source of protein. My favorite frittata recipe is very basic, because oftentimes, I think less is more. I want the flavors of the ingredients to shine and the marriage of eggs, sausage, potatoes, and onions are divine together.

By the way, do you know what makes a frittata? It’s potatoes. If you don’t add potatoes, it’s a quiche.



Since I’m watching what I eat, I used skim milk, but you can substitute your favorite milk and you can saute the potatoes in a little olive oil if you like. It’s great that way, but since I’m cutting down on calories any way I can, I boiled mine.

I enjoyed my Individual Frittatas with Jimmy Dean Sausage Crumbles with a slice of tomato and a few strawberries. It made the perfect brunch.
