Sausage and Broccoli Breakfast Frittata (Crustless Quiche)

August 11th, 2010 by katie

I am always so impressed by the healthy, thoughtful meals Biz from Biggest Diabetic Loser prepares for herself to eat at work every day.  One of her breakfast ideas, a sausage and broccoli “crustless quiche” is such a filling and satisfying way to start the day at the office.  I used frozen broccoli florets (no need to thaw or you could use fresh) and I used left-over pizza sausage which brought this dish together in very little time. 

Sausage and Broccoli Breakfast Frittata

serves 8, prep 10 min, cook 40 min
  • 1/2 lb breakfast sausage, cooked
  • 2 cups broccoli florets, frozen
  • 1/4 cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup egg whites
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • salt and pepper
  1. Grease a 9 inch deep dish pie plate and preheat oven to 400° F.
  2. Layer broccoli, sausage and cheese in pie plate.
  3. In a bowl or large measuring cup, whip together eggs, egg whites, and milk with a fork. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  4. Pour egg mixture over ingredients in the pie plate.
  5. Place pie plate in the oven and bake for 30-40 minutes or until completely set and browned on top.
  6. Cool, slice into wedges and serve.

    I love breakfast foods like this, but I love them best served for dinner. This looks delicious!

    This frittata looks great! I’m always meaning to make more recipes like this since I eat eggs every morning for breakfast. Maybe I’ll try it out this weekend!

    Yum, I agree, this looks amazing. I too would probably have it for dinner! And weirdly, I’d never thought about using a pie plate for a frittata instead of a frying pan. Good call.

    I made this recipe several times and love it. It’s easy. I add just a touch more cheese and bake for 32 minutes in my oven which comes out perfect. My husband even said “There is broccoli in it and I liked it!”
