Caramelzied Onion, Sausage and Kale Frittata

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! 


Recipe

  • 1 tblsp butter
  • 2 onions
  • 1/2 tsp salt

  8. Meanwhile whisk the eggs with the spices
  9. Turn the element off and pour the eggs in, stir to combine and spread the filling out evenly into the eggs
