Make: Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Sausage, Pepper + Onion Frittata

I brunch. You brunch. We all brunch with this savory, filling, protein-packed frittata.

This is such an easy, quick recipe. It’s perfect for when you wake up wanting food to magically appear. Honestly anyone can make this one! (Even my sister whose cooking-incapable.)

The eggs expand creating an airy pie while the onions and peppers add crunch with western undertones. The chicken sausage (or regular sausage if you want) another level of flavor depending on the flavoring you choose. I like to use chicken apple sausage for a hint of sweetness! If you want something spicier. try andouille sausage or chorizo.

Mmmm…what a way to start your day!

Note: If you are dairy free, make sure to check he ingredients. Some sausages have cheese mixed in.
