Breakfast is no joke in my world. I refuse to grab a bowl of cereal and call it a day. It’s not nearly enough for me and I’ll be angry and stabby within an hour. Nah, I’m a hearty daily breakfast kind of girl.

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 Sous Vide Egg Bites to have something healthy and ready to go.

But a baked paleo frittata is the MVP of my 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.

You’re about to kick breakfast’s butt.

What is the Difference Between an Omelet and a Frittata?

Think of an omelet as an egg sandwich, with 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 dairy-free frittata does).

What Is in This Bake Paleo Frittata?

  • Eggs (kinda crucial)
  • Asparagus (I used frozen!)
  • Sausage (you can make your own Whole30 Breakfast Sausage)
  • Greens – chef’s choice (spinach, kale, arugula, etc.)
  • Spices – lemon pepper and dried dill
  • Aromatics – garlic and onion
  • Milk – use what works for your life 

For the milk component, I used a dairy-free and Whole30 compliant product called Nut Pods. If you’re unable to find Nut Pods locally, Amazon carries them. You can also use a substitution of half coconut cream and half almond milk in place of the Nut Pods. Or just use your favorite creamy milk.

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 Stovetop Cinnamon Apples recipe (easy to make ahead and freezes well).

If you’re looking for something warm and filling, try Whole30 Fried Skillet Potatoes or Baked Cauliflower Patties.

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 Removing Rust from and Caring for Cast Iron.) cook paleo/Whole30 sausage until about half cooked. Add in onion and garlic and cook down for ~3 minutes. Add in (frozen) 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). 

Top with fresh greens, chopped onion, cilantro chimichurri, hot sauce, or salsa.

Pro Tips/Recipe Notes

  • Need help seasoning your cast iron skillet? Check out this post on refurbishing and seasoning your cast iron cookware. No 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.
  • 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.
