Sheet Pan Frittata

Typically, when my family asks what I want for breakfast on Mother’s Day, I know what my answer is going to be. 

Nothing. 

Don’t get me wrong, I have every intention of eating breakfast. But the idea of my husband and boys trying to navigate their way in my kitchen and cook together does not give me a warm-and-fuzzy feeling. It gives me the “somebody is either gonna make an awful mess or be totally stressed out in the process” feeling. And who wants that as a Mother’s Day present?

God-love all you ladies and gents who are a cooking couple. My husband and I aren’t like you. We’re good people, but the kitchen is mine and mine alone around here. And while I am *gradually* bringing my boys in the kitchen, a major holiday isn’t when I want that education to happen.

In years past, I’ve asked if we could take a leisurely morning out together to get coffee and muffins. This year, that likely won’t be happening for obvious reasons. But that doesn’t mean we can’t have a leisurely breakfast that doesn’t involve a lot of fuss and fanfare in the kitchen. It just means the recipe selection for the morning has to be right.

Now, this is NOT the Frittata I’ve been making each weekend since Easter and sharing on Instagram Stories. (That one is just as easy and coming soon.) This is a recipe I’ve had in my recipe stash for a while and was reminded of it just yesterday when working on a project about Make-Ahead Breakfast ideas.

The idea of needing a Make Ahead Breakfast may initially seem less relevant in our current shelter at home status. But is it, really? While the chaos of having to get out the door and get to school is gone, there’s still A LOT happening in my house each day. The less stress I can deliver at mealtimes, the better. 

So I’m sharing this Sheet Pan Frittata with you knowing that it’ll come in handy very soon. Maybe as early as tomorrow or as late as Mother’s Day. Because no matter what the season and circumstances, a yummy breakfast is always a good thing.

Take eggs from basic breakfast staple to crave-worthy dish with this Sheet Pan Frittata recipe.

  • Author: Regan Jones, RDN, ACSM-CPT
  • Yield: 8 servings 1x
Scale

Ingredients

  • 4 Italian lean turkey sausage links
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 2 cups baby spinach, roughly chopped
  • 1 cup grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1 cup mushrooms, sliced
  • 12 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons water (or milk)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 ounces (1/2 cup) shredded cheddar cheese

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a 9- x 13-inch baking sheet with parchment paper or spray with cooking spray.
  2. Remove casings from turkey sausage. In a large sauté pan over medium-high heat, cook sausage and break up with a wooden spoon to crumble. Cook for about 8 minutes, until sausage has cooked through, browned, and no longer pink.
  3. Turn off heat and stir in baby spinach, tomatoes, and mushrooms, just to let the spinach slightly wilt.
  4. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, water, salt and pepper. (The water helps the eggs stay fluffy, preventing a dense texture.)
  5. Evenly spread the sausage and vegetables in the sheet pan. Gently pour eggs over mixture, making sure eggs are evenly distributed. Sprinkle with cheese.
  6. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until eggs are cooked through and top begins to brown.
