Time in the morning is valuable, so having something ready to go is a must. I will bake up a tray of bacon (related: how to bake bacon in the oven) or Instant Pot Egg Bites to have something healthy and ready to go.
But a baked frittata is the MVP of make-ahead breakfast prep because it is so easy to reheat. And it’s also delicious cold if you need a total grab-and-go kind of meal.
What is the Difference Between an Omelet and a Frittata?
Think of an omelet as an egg sandwich, with the egg being the “bread”. You’ll cook the egg in a pan and then add a filling (meat, veggies, cheese, etc.,) to half of it and then fold it over creating a sandwich.
A frittata is an egg dish where everything is basically cooked together in the same pan. It’s unfussy; no folding or actual cooking skills are really involved. Most frittatas will start on the stovetop and finish in the oven (like this non-dairy frittata does).

What Should I Serve With a Frittata?
During the summer, fresh berries with some chopped mint would be lovely. If you still want fruit but fresh fruit is fairly sad (winter. whomp whomp), try this Steamed Apples With Cinnamon recipe (easy to make ahead and freezes well).
Here’s How to Make This Whole30 Frittata
*Printable and detailed recipe card is available at the bottom of this post.
In an oven-proof skillet (I used my thrift store cast iron. New to cast iron? Check out this post on How to Season Cast Iron.) cook sausage until about half cooked. Add in onion and garlic and cook down for ~3 minutes. Add in asparagus.
Beat eggs, milk, and spices together (I use my immersion blender to make it uber smooth) and pour over the sausage and veggies.
Bake for 13 minutes and then check for “doneness” (aka is there any wiggle when you give the handle a little jiggle).
Pro Tips/Recipe Notes
- If you don’t have an oven-safe skillet, you can use a well-greased 8×8 baking dish instead.
- Feel free to sub in any kind of meat you’d like. This is an awesome way to use up orphaned fridge leftovers. If you want to use bacon, check out this guide I wrote on Whole30 Bacon Brands.
- Want to use veggies other than asparagus? Go for it! If using bulkier frozen vegetables, you may need to cook them down a bit longer to cook off some of the water that will release. Frozen spinach will work great too! Learn how to freeze spinach in this post.
- If you consume dairy, adding some cheese to the top in the last few minutes of baking is a delicious addition!
- Dairy-free frittata will keep in the fridge for three days. To reheat, microwave for 30 seconds.
