Frittata of the Week

I don't need to tell anyone the benefits of eating a good paleo, protein filled breakfast.  Even your mom knew it was most important meal of the day.  But then Monday morning arrives in a harried fury and you find yourself 15 minutes late before your alarm has even gone off.  In a post-shower mad rush with your wet hair, maybe in a panic you grab a banana, and tell yourself this is the last week you'll start unprepared. Out the door you go, inevitably forgetting something.

Eating paleo isn't hard if you're prepared, which is sometimes easier said than done, but with this easy recipe, you'll have breakfast every morning of the week with only a few extra minutes of work. 

Frittata of the Week: Chicken Jalapeno Sausage and Red Onion

I got my sausage from a specialty market meat counter, it's a great way to get fresh sausage, and you can talk to the butcher about what ingredients it may have, as well as the flavors.

Brown sausage (about 1 lb, removed from casing) and 1 chopped red onion on a pan.  Spray baking dish with olive oil/canola oil spray, and dump in onion/sausage mixture.  Beat eggs - for this size dish I used 10 eggs, which feeds the husband for 5 days - with a pinch if salt and a couple tbs of water.  Dump in the baking dish and grind some pepper on top.

Bake at 375 for about 15 minutes, or until the middle has set.  Garnish with fresh chopped chives.  Keep it covered in the fridge and cut yourself a square every morning - it's delicious hot or cold.

This looks great! You didn't mention anything about the chicken. What did you do with it?

The sausage was made from ground chicken!
