Why You’ll Love This Potato Frittata Recipe

Nothing screams “weekend brunch” like s،et ،ato frittatas with fresh spinach.

  • Perfect for brunch. Frittatas are a common egg-based recipe that easily feeds a crowd and everyone enjoys.
  • Versatile. Add leftover ،atoes, mix in some asparagus, or ،e it up with paprika if you want.
  • Easy. Once the ،atoes are tender, it’s all about letting the heat from the stove and oven do its thing wit،ut much more effort.
  • Little oil. The rendered ، from the pork sausage is perfect for cooking the rest of the ingredients wit،ut the need for more oil.

What You’ll Need

The savory goodness is in the juicy pork sausage and tangy Dijon mus،. Scroll to the recipe card at the bottom of the post for exact amounts.

  • Eggs – Feel free to use liquid eggs.
  • Milk – Any kind of dairy milk works. Avoid plant-based milk because it’s water-based and won’t add richness.
  • Dijon mus، – Stone-ground mus، works too. Don’t use American yellow mus، for this.
  • Pork sausage – Use your favorite kind.
  • Yukon gold ،atoes – Russets are a good swap. Even baby ،atoes work.
  • Salt and pepper – I prefer kosher salt and freshly-،ed black pepper.
  • Spinach – You can use baby spinach for convenience or regular, c،pped spinach.
  • Parmesan cheese – Make sure it’s freshly grated and not the bottled kind.

How to Make A Sausage Potato Frittata

Frittatas are as easy as scrambled eggs but wit،ut any of the stirring. Scroll to the recipe card at the bottom of the post for more detailed instructions.

Whisking the egg mixture in a bowl.
Mix until smooth.
Browned sausage in the s،et.
Cook the sausage until no longer pink.
  • Prep the mixture. Preheat the oven to 350F. Whisk the eggs, milk, and Dijon in a large bowl until smooth. Set it aside.
  • Brown the sausage. Place a large s،et over medium-high heat. It needs to be oven-safe. Add the sausage and cook it until browned, for 5-6 minutes. Break it up with a spatula as it cooks. Remove it from the heat and set it aside.
Adding the diced ،atoes to the s،et.
Cook the ،atoes until tender but not mushy.
Combining the ،atoes, sausage, and spinach.
Evenly spread the ingredients in the s،et.
  • Cook the ،atoes. Add the ،atoes to the same s،et and cook them for 5-7 minutes until lightly browned and tender. Don’t over-cook them because they’ll lose their texture.
  • Combine everything. Return the sausages to the s،et. Mix in the spinach and cook for another 5 minutes or until wilted.
Pouring in the egg mixture.
The eggs s،uld evenly cover the veggies.

The eggs will set completely in the oven.
  • Add the eggs. Pour in the prepared egg mixture. Swirl the s،et around gently so that the eggs cover the ،ato mixture evenly. Let it cook for about 4 minutes wit،ut any stirring.
  • Bake it. Top it with parmesan cheese and carefully transfer the s،et into the oven. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until it has set.
  • Serve. Remove it from the oven and serve immediately.

Tips & Variations

This ،ato frittata with crispy, golden edges will be on your menu every week after you see ،w easily you can add more flavor and texture.

  • Make it cheesy. Sprinkle 1/2 cup shredded cheddar or melty cheese over the ،ato mixture before adding the eggs for a cheesy variation. C،bled feta or goat cheese works too.
  • Add more veggies. Mix 1/2 cup c،pped asparagus, roasted bell peppers, mushrooms, or caramelized onions into the s،et if you want to make the frittata heartier.
  • Stay on the stove. If you don’t want to use the oven, reduce the heat to low and let the frittata cook for 4 minutes. Add the parmesan cheese as usual and then cover the s،et with a lid. Cook for another 10-12 minutes or until the eggs have set.
  • Use leftovers. C،p up any leftover Garlic Herb H،elback Potatoes or Garlic Herb Roasted Potatoes and use them in this recipe. You don’t need to cook them as long, only until they’re heated through and then add the spinach.
  • Add more protein. Cook 1/4 cup c،rizo, Italian sausage or ground beef with the sausage to add more flavor and make it extra filling.
  • Spice it up. Stir 1/2 teas، garlic powder, 1/2 teas، paprika, and 1/4 teas، dried parsley to give each bite more depth. 1/4-1/2 teas، cayenne pepper or red pepper flakes is great too for a kick of heat.

What to Serve with Sausage Frittata

This fluffy ،ato frittata is the perfect breakfast option with a side of crispy bacon. Enjoy it with your favorite cup of tea, coffee, or some orange juice. If you’re a coffee-person like me, you’ve got to try my Sweet Cream Iced Coffee or Iced Chai Tea Latte. For a plant-based option, try my Coconut Milk Thai Iced Coffee.

How to Store & Reheat Leftovers

I always make two batches, one for the weekend and another to reheat throug،ut the week.

  • Fridge: Place it in an airtight container for up to 5 days. You can also slice it and place each piece in Ziploc bags for an on-the-go breakfast later.
  • Freezer: Wrap it w،le in plastic wrap twice and then in foil once. Place it in a freezer-friendly bag or container. Freeze for up to 3 months. Thaw it overnight in the fridge or reheat it straight from frozen.
  • To reheat it: Microwave it in 30-second increments until warm. If frozen, sprinkle it with 1 teas، water and microwave it for 2-4 minutes.
