Mexicanish Dinner Omelet

July 31, 2012

What makes this a dinner omelet you ask? Nothing, I just ate it at dinner time. Saute onions, mushrooms, turkey sausage until done then add in spinach. Cook spinach down. Once done move to paper towel covered plate. Pour egg white mixture into pan and cook until set. Add turkey sausage mixture to one side of omelet and top with Mexican cheese. Fold omelet over and finish with cheese and salsa. Lots of protein and lots of flavor. I also make this with chicken or steak sometimes. Enjoy.



Turkey Sausage, Spinach and Asparagus Frittata (first time)

June 24, 2012

I really liked this dish but in the future will probably dress it up a little more, I’ll add any updates to the comments section:


Saute turkey sausage in butter substitue (Olivio, yum) until nearly done, add asparagus, red onions, mushrooms and cook until tender. When all that is about done add a teaspoon of olive oil, fresh garlic, salt and pepper, add in spinach and cook down. This will mix all the flavors together REALLY nicely.

In a mixing bowl whisk six eggs together until not bubbly (sorry don’t know the technical term). In a cast iron (my favorite) or other oven safe pan, coat with a little Olivio and add about 1/2 the egg mixture, cook on medium until the eggs have started to set. Once the eggs have start to set a bit, add in the sausage/veggie mixture evenly to the top, then cover with cheese and the rest of the eggs. Top with cheese if you wish and then bake in oven at 350 for about 25 minutes or until everything is done all the way through.

This was my first frittata and even my picky wife (she knows it) liked it. I will definitely be trying more of these. Hope you enjoy.
