Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 head broccoli, stems removed and florets cut into 1-inch pieces
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 links fresh chicken apple sausage, removed from casing
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 ball fresh mozzarella, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • ½ cup fresh basil, thinly sliced, for garnish

Directions

  1. Preheat the broiler to high with the rack set six inches away from the heat source.
  2. Beat together the eggs, salt, and pepper in a mixing bowl until a cohesive canary-yellow color. Set aside.
  3. Heat the oil in a oven-proof pan over medium-high heat until shimmering. Reduce heat to medium; add the broccoli and a pinch of salt; cook, stirring occasionally, until broccoli is a vibrant green color and has started to brown, about 3 minutes. Add the sausage, breaking it up and stirring with a wooden spoon, until almost no pink remains, about 2 minutes.
  4. Spread out the ingredients evenly in the pan. Pour the egg over it evenly. Continue cooking, stirring and scraping the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon until loose curds form, about 2 minutes.
  5. Spread the cheese evenly on top. Transfer to the broiler, and cook until the top is firm and lightly browned, about 2 to 3 minutes.
  6. Remove from oven and top with the basil, and serve in the pan or allow it to cool slightly, loosen edges with a spatula and quickly flip onto a large serving plate.
Mealthy tip:

This dish is fabulous in a cast-iron pan. Swap spicy Italian pork sausage for a dish with more kick. Need to use up some leftover vegetables? Replace the broccoli with the cruciferous greens of your choice, or add them together for a veggie-packed frittata.

Loved the concept, but I swapped in spicy Italian pork sausage and Brussels sprouts. Also, I beat the egg using my immersion blender.

I added shredded hash brown potatoes to the frittata. Untraditional, but very filling and delicious. Perfect for Saturday morning breakfast.

This is one of my favorite breakfast / brunch dishes. Not that I needed another reason to love cheesy eggs for breakfast, the chicken apple sausage really sealed the deal for me. So good!

This was a hearty, delicious egg and sausage breakfast. The mozzarella cheese was a bit heavy for me so next time I'll go light on the amount I use. My husband on the other hand loved all the cheese!
