This Chicken Sausage & Kale Frittata is a perfect meal prep recipe to get you ready for a week of healthy breakfasts, or a great brunch alongside a skillet full of hashbrowns, or a bowl of fresh fruit.
Chicken Sausage & Kale Frittata
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 shallot, minced
1 (packed) cup chopped kale
2 garlic-and-herb chicken sausage links, diced
8 large eggs
⅓ cup cottage cheese
¼ teaspoon salt
1 pinch red pepper flakes
2 ounces fresh mozzarella cheese, diced
Optional: avocado slices, chopped fresh parsley, hot sauce
Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C).
Heat oil in a 10-inch skillet over medium heat. Cook shallot until softened, about 2 minutes; add kale and sausage and cook until kale is slightly wilted, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove skillet from heat.
Blend eggs, cottage cheese, salt, and red pepper flakes in a bowl using an immersion blender until smooth; pour into skillet. Sprinkle cheese over the eggs.
Bake in preheated oven until frittata no longer wobbles when you shake the handle, 15 to 20 minutes.
Top frittata with avocado and parsley as desired. Cut into slices to serve.
