Frittata with almond milk! And Paleo friendly.

We recently had a birthday celebration for my boss. Normally we all go out for lunch to celebrate someone's birthday (small office!) but he is always on a strict diet, I think he lives on Whole30 full-time. I'm exaggerating, but only slightly.

So he didn't want to go to a restaurant because he wouldn't be able to eat anything. But we felt bad to celebrate everyone else's birthday and not his. We did a little recon to see what exactly he was eating at the time and it was a "flexible" paleo - in other words paleo, unless he was cheating.

Of course, we didn't want to make him cheat so we wanted to keep the food paleo-friendly. I volunteered to make a frittata which is an Italian dish that is basically a quiche with no crust. To make it paleo friendly, you use almond milk instead of milk or cream.

It also makes it generally healthier. If you're into that kind of thing. Sometimes I am and I'm sometimes I'm not.

You also cannot put cheese in it if you want it to be paleo (I'd suggest 3/4 cup of shredded cheddar or mozzarella cheese).

Coconut oil (for a paleo pan grease)
5-6 eggs
1/2 cup almond milk (suggest unsweetened, plain)
3 links of Italian sausage (sweet or hot based on your preference)
1 cup chopped broccoli florets
1 bell pepper, chopped
1 TB trader joe's 21 seasoning salute (this is my favorite for eggs! but you can also use garlic, onion powder, salt and pepper)


Remove Italian Sausage from casings and brown with bell pepper for 5-7 minutes. Add broccoli and cook an additional 2-3 minutes. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9in pie plate using coconut oil (or other grease if you aren't making it paleo). Put veggies and sausage in the pie plate, season with 21 seasoning salute or you preferred egg seasoning. Beat eggs and almond milk together in a mixing bowl. Pour egg mixture in pie plate and lightly mix with sausage and veggies. The sausage and veggies will mostly remain on the bottom but you want egg mixed in between the gaps. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes or until firm. It might take up to 35 minutes.
