Easy to make, inexpensive yet feeds a family, delicious smoked sausage, tender vegetables with a hit of sharp cheddar and tons of flavor.

Make one of these and eat either serve it to the family with a big bowl of salad or eat it in small wedges for several meals. In Italian, this is called a FRITTATA but in Bariatric Eating we call it a pie! Mangia and enjoy.

Smoked Sausage, Broccoli & Cheddar Pie for Bariatric Eating

Smoked Sausage, Broccoli & Cheddar Pie
  • 1 cup diced smoked sausage
  • Small red pepper, peeled seeded, sliced ¼ inch strips
  • ½ medium onion, sliced into ¼ inch strips
  • 1 cup broccoli florets - raw or cooked
  • 6 eggs
  • ½ cup milk - anything you have in the fridge
  • 1 teaspoon Coleman's dry mustard or 1½ teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • ½ cup finely shredded cheddar
  1. Sauté the smoked sausage in a non stick skillet over medium high heat for 90 seconds to render a bit of the fat, add the red pepper, onion, broccoli and stir fry until vegetables are fork tender, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove pan from heat to cool.
  2. Coat a deep dish pie plate with non stick vegetable spray and preheat oven to 325 *.
  3. Prepare a custard by beating the eggs with the milk, mustard, salt, pepper, and cheddar. Stir in the sautéed vegetables and pour mixture into prepared pan.
  4. Bake until sides are golden and puffed but the center still jiggles slightly, 35 to 45 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature. Reheats beautifully in a microwave.
