Tomato + Basil Frittata Recipe

If you’re looking to whip up something fancy for mom this Mother’s Day without having to spend hours in the kitchen, look no further than a frittata.

Frittatas are not only beautiful, but classically delicious, and this tomato basil version lends a light Italian flavor to tradition. 

Blended with our Pasture-Raised Turkey Sticks and served with a side of bright orange and pomegranate, it’s definitely something that will make mom smile the moment she gets up on Mother’s Day.

Not to mention, this recipe is super healthy and clean, heavy on the protein and free of sugar. This makes it great for everyone in the family to enjoy, while possibly also saving room for goodies later in the day.

Without further ado, here’s a tomato-y, basil-y, egg-y cheers to all moms! 

Tomato + Basil Frittata 

Prep time: 5 minutes
Total time: 35 minutes
Serves: 6-8 servings

Ingredients:

  • 4 Paleovalley Pasture-Raised Turkey Sticks, thinly sliced
  • 8 eggs, whisked
  • 2 roma tomatoes, sliced
  • 1 Tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 Tbsp coconut cream
  • Fresh spinach (or other greens)
  • ½ tsp onion powder
  • 2 Tbsp chopped, fresh basil leaves
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Basil for garnish
  • Optional side of fresh sliced oranges, topped with pomegranate seeds

Equipment: 

  • Cast-iron of oven-proof skillet*
  • Large bowl

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375ºF. Heat oil over medium heat in your skillet.
  2. Add sliced turkey sausage and saute gently for 1-2 minutes. 
  3. Add spinach or other greens to the pan and saute until softened, then remove from heat.
  4. In a large bowl, whisk eggs with basil, onion powder, coconut cream (this adds creaminess similar to heavy cream) and salt. Pour over sausage and greens in your pan.
  5. Top with thinly sliced tomatoes, salt, and pepper to taste.
  6. Place in oven and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until eggs are set and golden brown.
  7. Garnish with more fresh basil before serving.

*If you don’t have an oven-proof skillet, you can transfer this to a shallow baking dish before baking.

The sliced turkey sausage in this recipe is made from our pre-cooked turkey sticks, which are pasture-raised and lend a decadent smoky flavor to any dish (plus they’re great on the go, both for moms and kiddos). Check them out here!

Happy Paleo-ing!
