Spicy Turkey Sausage Frittatas

Spicy Turkey Sausage Frittatas. That’s what I’m calling these mini breakfast cakes.

I wanted to name these Cowboy Cupcakes. But the Mr. gave the thumbs down on that. While his mouth was full of one of these breakfast frittatas I might add.

Good recipe, name choice questionable.

So the recipe gets a thumbs up, however my name choice? Not so much.

I still tried to argue my case though. I told him these were something a wife might make her cowboy so the name was more for women than men. He gave me a wincing smile and grabbed another frittata, dipped it in hot sauce, and scarfed it down. So I kept going, happy that he was eating them and obviously enjoying them.  I pointed out that I had just photographed these frittatas perched atop a mini cupcake pedestal with hearts on it. Again, the wincing smile was back. He just said “These are really good. I could eat them all but I won’t.”

Cowboys and hearts

So, I settled on Spicy Turkey Sausage Frittatas. Probably a little more descriptive. Make them for your cowboy, make them for yourself, make them for the whole family or get your family to make them for you. Call them whatever you want. That’s all up to you. I’m not going to apologize for photographing them on a cupcake stand because in my heart I will always consider them cowboy cupcakes. 😉

Use your favorite kind of cheese

You may notice that I used American cheese when making these frittatas instead of cheddar like the recipe calls for. That’s because I am not a fan of American cheese but bought it for my kids. Turns out they are not a fan either and so I was trying to use it up. Point is, use any cheese you want. I feel like cheddar would taste the best but really use your fav type of cheese and that will probably taste the best to you.

Lighten up this fritatta recipe

I’m already using ground turkey sausage so you’re going to save some calories there. You could also use low-fat cheese and only egg-whites. You could also leave out the  bread and these would still taste very good! So please feel free to make adjustments to suit your dietary needs.

Instructions

  • 1. In a large bowl, beat together eggs, thyme, salt and pepper.

  • 3. Cut turkey sausage into bit-sized chunks. Distribute the pieces evenly among the cups.
  • 4. Place a small amount of cheese in each cup. Pour herbed eggs over top to fill each cup.
  • 5. Bake at 350˚ for 30 minutes or until frittatas become puffy on top and look like muffins. (They will shrink when they cool)
