Two Cheese Sausage Baby Broccolini Frittata

I found this recipe in a magazine when I was looking for something healthy and easy for breakfast. It was my first time using baby broccolini and was very happy with the results. It's very similar to broccoli but actually easier to eat because it isn't as dense. Definitely try it if you haven't! My husband who found my leftovers in the fridge wasn't quite as happy, but he has some personal issues of mixing veggies with eggs that he needs to work on. So you'll have to trust me on this one. If you like omelets and frittatas with veggies - you'll love this... if you don't leave out the vegetable. But you know veggies make all that cheese and sausage okay, right?

Two Cheese Sausage Baby Broccolini Frittata
serves 4
prep time + cooking time: 20 minutes
adapted from Rachael Ray recipe, click here for original 

4 eggs
1/2 cup milk
5 Sausage links, chopped into chunks
1 cup grated/shredded cheddar cheese
1oz Parmesan cheese sliced/shaved thin
1/2 lb baby broccolini
1 shallot, diced
1 Tb olive oil
optional: fresh basil, sliced & sprinkled over cheese after finished baking

Directions: 5 Steps
1. Cut the sausage into pieces and cook them for approx 5 minutes in a oven safe skillet. 

2. Add in the veggies. Sauté the baby broccolini and shallot in the olive oil for approx. 5 minutes over medium heat

3. Mix/whisk the eggs and milk together in a bowl or cup. Pour the mixture over the veggies and meat. Let it cook for 5 minutes over low heat to let it "set". 

4. Sprinkle the cheese over the top and bake in the oven at 350 for 5 minutes.  Should be golden colored and eggs no longer jiggle or shake when moved. 

5. Let cool briefly (will be easier for slicing) and dig in to your healthy & filling breakfast!
