Family Sized Frittata with Linguica, Zuchinni and Cheese
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 6 to 8
  • 12 large eggs
  • ½ onion, diced
  • 6 to 8 ounces of linguica (or other type of sausage), diced
  • 1 zucchini, cut into slices
  • cheese
  • olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • salt and pepper
  1. Start by setting your oven temperature to 400 F
  2. Because the final baking is done in the oven please make sure the skillet or pan you are using has a heat proof handle. Perferably one made out of metal. Resin based handles will melt.
  3. Start by adding a tablespoon or two of olive oil to your pan or skillet. If you've already diced and frozen some onions add in about ½ cup. If your using a fresh onion add 1 small diced onion to the pan. Sautee the onion for about 2 minutes.
  4. Add in the linguica or other type of pork sausage. Cook for another 4 to 5 minutes.
  5. I decided to search my refrigerator to see what other veggies I had on hand that could be added in. I found some grilled zucchini and added that to the pan.
  6. Frittatas are a great way to use leftovers even if you have just a small amount available. Toss in your other veggies. Cook for another 1 to 2 minutes. Just long enough to allow the flavors to blend a bit.
  7. While everything is cooking break the eggs into a large bowl and scramble them. The recipe calls for a dozen eggs but 8 eggs can easily be used to make a slightly smaller frittata.
  8. Add in the basil, salt, peppers and cheese. Blend well and pour the mixture over the filling ingredients in the pan.
  9. Gently stir the filling items around to even distribute them. Cook the eggs until they begin to set around the edges.
  10. It should take about 1 to 2 minutes for that to happen. Once it does transfer the pan to the oven and bake 10 to 12 minutes or until the eggs are set and slightly puffed up.
  11. Carefully remove the pan from the oven.
