An Italian Sausage and Kale Frittata with tomatoes and mozzarella is delicious any time of day! Leftover Italian frittata is a great make-ahead meal, too!
In a couple of days, there will be a few changes around here. The kids will be starting school again. Alarm clocks will be set. Bedtimes will be earlier. But this fall, bus rides will be swapped for a walk down the hall to log on to video calls, and dressing nicely for school, well, won’t matter as much.
We’re all going to need to shake off the laze of summer and return to productive mindsets.
I won’t need to pack lunches and stuff them with ice packs at the crack of dawn (not complaining!), but I will need to plan ahead now that there are schedules to follow. I’m stocking up on all the essentials to make sure quick meals can be made easily, whether it’s me behind the stove or the kids whipping it up on their own!
The silver lining in all this is that we can move past boring sandwiches, or even leftovers stuffed in thermoses! I can easily cook something hot and fresh, like this Italian Sausage and Kale Frittata!

How to Make Italian Sausage Frittata
Frittatas were my mom’s secret weapon whenever she was pressed for time and needed a quick meal, and over the years, I’ve learned that it’s another example of mom knows best! Frittatas are perfect any time of day, and even better, you can make it in advance for a make-ahead meal!
This frittata is inspired by Italian flavors — I use hot Italian chicken sausage, kale and tomatoes and mix it into the eggs with a generous handful of mozzarella cheese for the easiest one-skillet meal.
Whether you enjoy the frittata alone or with a side salad, I think everyone agrees this is better than cafeteria food, hands down!

Italian Sausage and Kale Frittata
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1/2 cup red onion finely chopped
- 5 oz Italian sausage sliced (about 2 to 2 1/2 links)
- 1 cup kale chopped
- 1/4 cup grape tomatoes halved
- 6 large eggs
- 2 tablespoons milk
- 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
- freshly ground black pepper to taste
- 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese
- Preheat the oven to 400° F and place an oven rack in the center of the oven.
- Heat an 8-inch skillet (cast iron or non stick works best) over medium heat. Add the oil and twirl the pan to evenly coat, making sure to coat the sides of the skillet. Add the onions, and cook for about 3 minutes, or until they wilt and are transparent. Stir in the sausage and kale and cook for another three minutes, followed by the tomatoes.
- Quickly whisk together the eggs, milk, salt, and pepper, and pour the eggs into the skillet. Using a spatula, move the edges of the eggs towards the center of the pan, stirring around the curds as they form.
- Gently stir in the cheese while the eggs are still very loose with some curds.
- Place in the oven to bake for about 10-15 minutes, or until the frittata is lofty and the center is no longer runny when you insert a knife.
- Remove from the oven, let it stand for a few minutes before slicing and serving.
