How awesome would you look, if you presented this as breakfast one day?

Whole Quiche

Here is a little secret: it’s super easy! Sshhhhhhhh!

1 large cast iron skillet
1 tbsp coconut oil
1 lb Italian turkey sausage (ground or links chopped into bite sized pieces)
1 medium onion, any kind you like
1 can sliced black olives, drained of juices
1 large avocado
6-10 large eggs (depending how egg-y you like it, I used 7)
splash of any style milk you drink

Move an oven rack near the top, and turn your oven to broil.
Heat the cast iron skillet on medium heat on the stove.
Add the coconut oil and let it melt, make sure the skillet is hot before adding any other ingredients.
Add the Italian sausage, stirring often until it’s fully cooked.
While that’s cooking, chop your onion.
Add the onion and let that cook for a few minutes, stirring a bit.
Add the olives, stir those around too.
While that’s cooking, chop your avocado into bite sized pieces, also, whisk your eggs in a bowl with the milk.
Add the avocado, and stir all the ingredients.
Now, add the eggs/milk combo, and constantly stir the mixture until the eggs are about half cooked.
Put the cast iron skillet in the oven (don’t forget to use an oven mitt for the handle, it’s hot!).
Cook for 3-ish minutes (yes, that’s it!), or until the eggs are light brown, like the awesome picture.
Let the awesome-ness sit on the stove away from heat for 5-10 minutes so it can cool a bit.

This serves about 6. ENJOY!!!

I served this with a side of spinach, the fanciness is getting a little out of control, I know…

Slice Quiche

This sounds like a lot of steps, but is actually relatively easy. Try to make this on the weekend first to practice, but it’s fast enough to be a weekday staple too. It will look like you slaved in the kitchen for hours, even though you didn’t! Don’t worry, your secret is safe!

Also, play with ingredients, here are some other ideas:
Ham, green chili, mushroom
Bacon, spinach, cooked potato
Broccoli, red pepper, leek
You get the idea, make it with ingredients you like!

***NOTE: if you make this with other ingredients, make sure to add spices and salts (again, any you like). For this recipe, the Italian turkey sausage was already seasoned and was the basis of the flavor for this particular frittata.
