Caramelzied Onion, Sausage and Kale Frittata
I LEAVE TONIGHT. WOOOOHOO. HAPPY ALMOST MARCH BREAK. Sorry. I am just excited. Over half my students were missing today, which just amps up the excitement. Cause it means it's almost vacay time.
I take a train to Toronto tonight and then leave bright and early tomorrow am. The best thing - my dad bought this ticket with points so I get to fly FIRST class the whole way. I have never flown first class before in my life. I am so excited I might pee. haha. But really. So excited. I have loaded up on podcasts, snacks and books so I am ready to go. I have a layover but nothing brutal. Unfortunately on the way back I have the worst layover - I land in Washington at midnight, and my next flight is not until 7 am the next day. What am I supposed to do with that one? Shucks. The worst part is the flight I am waiting for the next day is an hour and a half long! A 7 hour middle of the night layover for a 1.5 hour flight? Seems crazy. BUT can't complain really. I am going to the sunny, hot Amazon for just over a week. Sounds pretty damn good to me.
Don't worry I have not forgotten about you. I will have zero internet access, but I have 2 posts with new recipes schedule to come out. Be sure to check them out!!
In the meantime you can whip up this delectable frittata, I mean what's not to love? Delicious fresh, but also just as good the next day. Frittata's are such a staple for me because it means I can cook once and have week day breakfasts good to go for many days. Hallelujah!
- 1 tblsp butter
- 2 onions
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 2 crumbled sausages (remove the casings and crumble)
- 1 diced red pepper
- 1 head kale, chopped into small pieces (steams removed)
- 10-12 eggs
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp onion flakes

- Melt the butter in a cast iron skillet
- Cut the onions in half and then slice into little half moons
- Add to the skillet and sprinkle with salt
- Cook, stir often, for about 15 mins, until the onions are browned; after about 10 mins add a couple tblsp of water and let that cook off, this help speed up the caramelization process
- Crumble the sausages into the skillet and cook until cooked through
- Add the peppers and kale and saute for another 5 mins
- Meanwhile whisk the eggs with the spices
- Turn the element off and pour the eggs in, stir to combine and spread the filling out evenly into the eggs
- Pop into the oven for 20-25 mins
