A classic meal, Frittata Lyonnaise is packed full of onion, potato, sausage (or bacon), and gruyere cheese. It’s an amazing one pan breakfast that’s only 30 minutes from start to finish!
Let me string together a couple of words for you: potatoes, onions, garlic, sausage, cheese, eggs, quick, easy, one pan. Yep, that’s just about all I needed to hear too (who’s kidding, I was all-in by the time I got to cheese). Breakfasts are TOUGH now for me… we were a family that loved our french toast and waffles, but I’ve got to pull back on those carbs for Bo, which means finding lots of new, lower carb options.
Our weekends are starting to get more hectic now too with summer here, and we’re usually in a rush to get out of the house, so finding a fast breakfast like this is a bonus too! It’s a one pan meal that goes from the stove to the oven, to the table. Unless you have kids, then it goes to the counter to be cut onto a plate because the last thing we need on an already busy weekend is a trip to the ER.
Let’s back it up a second though and focus on the two most important things: Meat and Cheese. Now, normally a Frittata Lyonnaise has bacon in it, and you can totally switch out the sausage back to bacon, I just did the change to make it marginally healthier for Bo. The cheese though, the cheese should be gruyere, mainly because it’s the best damn cheese there is. To me it’s like old cheddar mixed with a good parmesan, salty, nutty, and all around just amazing. At least give it a try once, and if you don’t love it, just swap out for some cheddar.
