Sausage and Butternut Squash Frittata

Sausage and Butternut Squash Frittata

Sausage and butternut squash frittata is a perfect paleo breakfast, lunch or dinner. Frittatas are one of my go-to quick and easy meals. They’re a great way to use up whatever you happen to have in the refrigerator. This one uses roasted butternut squash and breakfast sausage. It’s a fantastic combination.

The key to a great quick frittata is making sure each of your ingredients packs a lot of flavor. Just about any kind of sausage works. And I like using left over roasted vegetables. Roasted vegetables have a wonderful caramelized flavor and natural sweetness that complement the sausage. Add in some onions, peppers, eggs and herbs, and you’ve got an easy one-pan meal.

This recipe makes two generous servings, but you could easily double it if you have a larger skillet. Either way, this paleo sausage and butternut squash frittata is a winner.

This quick and easy sausage and butternut squash frittata is a perfect paleo breakfast, lunch or dinner. It's gluten-free, dairy-free and paleo. |

    This looks so good! You’ve inspired me. I’m moving this week and I think I will make myself a big egg bake that I can have for breakfast everyday to make my life way easier. Thank you!

    This looks good enough to lick the computer screen. 😉

    Do you know if it freezes well?

    I substituted a sweet tater (not yam) for the Butternut squash and used a muffin tin. Nuke two of ’em, grab my coffee and I’m out the door.
    I saute’d the onion and peppers in a skillet, divided them up in the muffin tin, added cooked sausage and roasted sweet tater and put it in the oven at 325 for about 12 minutes. I then added the egg mixture and waited 5 minutes before I switched to the broiler.
