Red, White and Green Frittata
• 2 Honeysuckle White Sweet or Hot Italian Turkey Sausage Links (about 8 oz.)
• 1 Tbsp. olive oil
• 1 1/2 cups frozen broccoli cuts, thawed
• 1/2 cup sun-dried tomatoes in oil, drained and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
• 6 large eggs
• 1/2 tsp. dried Italian herbs
• 1/2 tsp. salt
• 1/4 tsp. black pepper
• 2 oz. reduced-fat feta cheese crumbles
In a 10-inch non-stick skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add sausages and cook until browned, about 5 minutes. Cover and cook over low heat until internal temperature reaches 170 degrees F., about 5 minutes. Remove sausages and cut into 1/2-inch slices. Return sausage slices to skillet along with broccoli and tomatoes. In a bowl, beat eggs with herbs, salt and pepper until combined. Add eggs to skillet and cook over medium heat until eggs begin to set. With a rubber spatula, lift edges of frittata and tilt pan so that uncooked eggs run underneath. Continue to cook, lifting eggs and tilting pan until frittata is mostly set, with just a small amount of moist eggs on top, about 10 minutes. Heat broiler. Sprinkle top of frittata with feta cheese; place under broiler until edges are puffed and browned and eggs on top are set, 3-4 minutes. Carefully slide frittata from skillet onto serving platter and cut into 6 wedges. Serve warm or cold. Serves 6.
