For a healthier (though less zippy) version of this crowd-pleasing frittata, use smoked turkey sausage links instead of spicy andouille.


  • 8 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 tablespoons snipped fresh cilantro
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 6 ounces precooked andouille sausage, chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1 cup chopped red sweet pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 cup canned reduced-sodium black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1/3 cup chopped tomatoes
  • 1 avocado, halved, pitted, peeled and chopped (optional)
  • Light sour cream (optional)


  1. Preheat broiler. In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, cheese, cilantro, salt and black pepper; set aside. In a large broiler-safe skillet set over medium heat, cook sausage, onion and red sweet pepper in hot oil about 5 minutes or until vegetables are crisp-tender, stirring occasionally. Stir in beans.
  2. Pour egg mixture over vegetables. Cook over medium heat. As eggs set, run a silicone spatula around edge, lifting egg mixture so uncooked portion flows underneath. Continue cooking and lifting edges until frittata is almost set (surface will be moist).
  3. Place skillet under broiler 4 to 5 inches from heat. Broil for 1 to 2 minutes or until top is set and no longer wet. Let stand for 5 minutes. Slide frittata onto a serving platter. Sprinkle with tomato. If desired, top with avocado and sour cream.
