Wash produce before use


Prep the frittata ingredients

  • Cut a small corner from the sausage packaging and drain off any excess liquid. Transfer to a plate; pat dry with a paper towel. 
  • Peel and finely chop enough onion to measure ¼ cup [½ cup]; set aside half for the salad.
  • Trim any coarse stems from the broccoli; coarsely chop the broccoli.
  • Measure 1 cup [2 cups] spinach for the frittata; set aside the rest for the salad.
  • Crack the eggs into a medium bowl and season with salt and pepper. Using a fork or whisk, lightly beat until just blended. 


Cook the sausage, vegetables, and frittata

In a medium [large] frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the sausage and half the onion and cook, stirring to break up the meat, until the sausage is lightly browned but not yet cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes. Add the broccoli, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the sausage is cooked through and the broccoli starts to soften, 2 to 4 minutes. Working in batches if needed, stir in 1 cup [2 cups] spinach and cook until just wilted, 1 to 2 minutes. 

Spread the ingredients evenly over the bottom of the pan. Pour the eggs on top. Reduce the heat to medium-low, cover, and cook without stirring until the eggs are set, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and let the frittata cool for 5 minutes, then cut into wedges. While the frittata is cooling, prepare the salad.


Make the salad

In a medium bowl, toss together the carrots, remaining onion and spinach, and as much red pepper vinaigrette as you like (set aside any remaining vinaigrette for serving). Season to taste with salt and pepper. 


Transfer the salad and frittata wedges to individual plates and serve any remaining vinaigrette on the side.
