This Frittata is EGGS-actly what Dad Wants on Father's Day - Even his Waistline Won't Be Compromised.
MMMMOIST. CREAAAMMMMY. CHEEEESY.
With just three simple words, it would seem that skinny jeans are suddenly out of the question. That a two piece bathing suit would be outlawed. And having only one chin? A thing of the past. But I say that good food and a good figure can go hand in hand. With only 368 calories per serving*, you can be sure this is an EGG-cellent choice for Dad, for anyone. Let's add another word to our descriptive list:
Just the right amount of moist yumminess is obtained by stuffing lots of fresh zucchini and yellow squash amid good, lean sausage and a bit of silky Gruyere cheese. - Below you'll see how beautifully browned and finished the frittata is when it comes out of the oven. In less than 20 minutes, you're in heaven!
Add a few berries in lieu of syrup or other topping and it is not only healthy, but pretty!
*Calories are only an estimate based on cursory research. For actual caloric content please consult your own research.
I'm loving the sheen of the cheese, and the crust of the eggs. Fresh rosemary, right from the garden is what sets this apart from all other egg-stravaganza recipes!
Go ahead. Turn the oven on. Whisk those eggs. Give Dad what he deserves! #fathersday2016
RECIPE: Squash, Sausage and Gruyere Frittata
Serves 6 / Click here for printable version.
1 C yellow squash diced small
1 C zucchini squash diced small
¼ C thinly sliced white onion
1/3 C heavy cream
¼ t kosher salt
¼ t black pepper
½ t fennel salt
2 t fresh rosemary chopped finely
½ lb mild Italian sausage, removed from casings and browned
½ C grated gruyere cheese
3 T butter
Parsley to garnish
Brown the sausage and set aside. Whisk together the eggs, cream, salts, and rosemary. In an 8 inch oven safe sauté pan, melt the 3 T butter. Add the squash and onion and sauté on medium until soft, about 4 minutes. Add in the cooked sausage and rewarm if it had cooled. Now add the egg mixture. Don’t stir, just move the pan back and forth a bit for everything to settle. Sprinkle with the gruyere cheese. Let sit on the stove on medium-low heat for about 3 minutes, just to set the outside and bottom. Put in a 400 degree oven for about 12-15 minutes, until sides are lightly browned and middle is set. Serve with a garnish of chopped fresh flat leaf parsley.
