Sunday Brunch Frittata ... so low carb !

Can you believe it's Sunday again. I find the weeks go by so quickly! As it's Sunday why not take time and enjoy this recipe suggestion, loosely called 'Sunday Brunch Frittata' or 'Weekend English Breakfast Frittata' … it's a clever twist on the full English breakfast! Packed with sausage, smoked bacon and soft button mushrooms, this Frittata is just the perfect weekend late morning dish, and so low in carbs, it's virtually no carb!


Ingredients
Serves Four
2 outdoor-bred pork sausages
1 tbsp. oil
3 smoked back bacon rashers fat trimmed cut into cubes
75 g button mushrooms sliced
65 g tomatoes halved (e.g. cherry or pomodorino)
4 large (British) free-range eggs
12.5 g bunch fresh chives snipped

Method
1. Squeeze the sausages out of their skins, and roll the sausage-meat into 12 bite-size balls.
2. Heat ½ tablespoon of the oil in a 20cm ovenproof frying pan. Add the sausage and fry all over for 1 minute, until browned and cooked through. Add the bacon and mushrooms and fry for a few minutes, until golden. Add the tomatoes for a further minute. Remove the mixture and set aside. Discard excess fat from the pan.
3. Whisk together the eggs and chives and season with freshly ground black pepper. Stir in 2/3 of the fried sausage mix. Pre-heat the grill to medium.
4. Heat the remaining oil in the frying pan over a medium heat. Add the egg mixture, tipping the pan so that it covers the base. Turn down the heat and scatter over the remaining sausage mixture. Cook for 8 minutes, or until almost set.
5. Place under a pre-heated grill, for 2-3 minutes, until the frittata is set and golden. Let cool slightly, then slide out of the pan, cut into wedges and serve.
6. Enjoy!

Yum, sounds great! I do mine in muffin tins most of the time and keep them meatless during the week for breakfasts, but if it's for a dinner or brunch I usually add in some kind of meat.

An excellent choice. I haven't had one in awhile. I used to order them when eating out, as JB cannot have eggs.

We make frittata in so many different permutations. It is always good, and quick too. Combined with a salad and a glass of white wine it's a great dinner, especially if we have been out all day and don't wish to spend a lot of time making dinner.
