Sausage, Peppers, and Onions Frittata with Garlic Herb Goat Cheese

Comfort food cooking in cast iron, anyone? This Sausage, Peppers, and Onions Frittata with Garlic Herb Goat Cheese has soooo much flavor, and brings a different twist to two old classics!

How about a new recipe featuring this week’s impulse buys at ALDI — Let’s hear it for affordable experimentation, right? Their garlic & herb goat cheese is back in stores and on sale this week, and we’ve also really been enjoying the apple chicken sausage.

One lonely red pepper was also rolling around in my fridge, so instead of doing the typical sausage, peppers, and onions thing, I thought it would be more fun today to incorporate the goat cheese as well and cook everything up as an easy one pan dinner recipe. Hence, today’s creation: Sausage, Peppers, and Onions Frittata with Garlic Herb Goat Cheese!

slicing the sausage and peppers frittata

Well, isn’t that just a beautiful skillet full of low carb, gluten free goodness? This easy weeknight frittata recipe brings in all the savory flavor of traditional sausage, peppers, and onions, but packs an extra wallop of flavor from the garlicky goat cheese — plus, you get to enjoy the contrasting (yet complementary texture) of the creamy eggs, and just a little salty tang from the Parmesan topping.

This easy weeknight frittata recipe brings in all the flavor of traditional sausage, peppers, and onions, but packs an extra wallop of flavor from the garlicky goat cheese -- plus you get to enjoy the contrasting of the creamy eggs and just a little salty tang from the Parmesan topping. Naturally gluten free, low carb.

Ingredients

2 Tbsp olive oil
1/2 of a medium yellow onion, diced
1 medium red bell pepper, chopped
12 oz chicken sausage, sliced into coins (I used apple chicken sausage)
8 eggs
4 oz garlic & herb goat cheese, crumbled into pieces
Sea salt, to taste
Black pepper, to taste
1/4 tsp crushed red pepper (omit if you are sensitive to spice)
1/2 cup shredded Parmesan

Directions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Heat olive oil in a 12″ cast iron skillet over medium heat until shimmering, then add onion and saute for about 2 minutes. Add bell pepper and continue to cook over medium heat for another 2 minutes.

Add sausage and continue sauteing over medium heat for another 5-6 minutes, stirring occasionally, until sausage is browned and pepper is softened.

While the sausage, peppers, and onions are sauteing, whisk together the eggs, sea salt, pepper, and crushed red pepper in a large bowl until well blended.

dollop with goat cheese

Spread the sauteed pepper and sausage mixture out evenly across the bottom of your skillet and dollop it with goat cheese.

edges of frittata start to set

Increase the heat under the pan to medium-high. Pour the egg mixture into the skillet on top of the sausage, peppers, and onions and continue cooking undisturbed over medium-high heat just until the edges start to set (about three minutes).

Turn off heat under the pan and sprinkle the frittata with Parmesan, then move the skillet into the oven and bake at 400 degrees for 12-14 minutes, or until set.

Broil for another two minutes to brown, then remove from oven and let your sausage, pepper, and onions frittata cool for at least five minutes before slicing.

What a beautiful egg dinner, right?!

This easy weeknight frittata recipe brings in all the flavor of traditional sausage, peppers, and onions, but packs an extra wallop of flavor from the garlicky goat cheese -- plus you get to enjoy the contrasting of the creamy eggs and just a little salty tang from the Parmesan topping. Naturally gluten free, low carb.

Have this savory sausage, peppers, and onions dinner frittata on your table in about 45 minutes start to finish. I know it will be hard to wait those 45 minutes, because the aromas wafting from your kitchen while the frittata is baking will be absolutely maddening, but stay strong — and do let it cool a bit before slicing, so that it’s easier to get out of the pan.

This weeknight frittata dinner recipe is naturally low carb and gluten free.

Thought it’d be lacking without much seasoning in the recipe but I was wrong! Delicious! Added mushrooms and garlic.

Glad you enjoyed! There's so much flavor in the goat cheese and sausage that it doesn't need much more. :)

Very good. I wonder if adding sliced potatoes would make it even better?

This was my first time trying the recipe. Everything was so easy to follow and it rocked! I have to say it’s people like you that make dinner possible in a low income household like mine!

My kiddos gobbled this up...and I have picky eaters. My husband is lactose intolerant so goat cheese is out. However, I substituted shredded smoked gouda and it was so good! I don't like setting it on the stovetop as I think it browns it up too much and makes the eggs bitter. I put it right in the oven and added about 4 minutes and it came out perfect.
