Onion Frittata Recipe From – OMG That’s Paleo?

How can anyone pass up a great frittata?  I know I can’t!  This is Dan from Primal4Life bringing you a ”Caramelized Onion Frittata” from Juli Bauer’s latest cookbook; OMG That’s Paleo?  This is one frittata that nobody should pass on; it’s rich, creamy, soft, and incredibly tasty!  And with some Italian sausage in there, it has a great flavor that literally took me back to my childhood.  Memories of some of my mother’s home cooked breakfasts popped into my head…. 

So far this cookbook that Juli came out with has been a hit in our household…. Ever since we got it from Julian Bakery, we’ve been enjoying different meals; I’ve probably been eating too much!  But I don’t care cause tomorrow I’ll burn it off in the gym, and then have one of these “Caramelized Onion Frittatas” as a post-workout meal!!   What’s that?  Yes, Julian Bakery has a Cookbook section, filled with a great lineup of Paleo cookbooks to keep you occupied for a very long time.  This book is instantly climbing to the top of the charts though, as some of the recipes sound phenomenal and they don’t seem that hard to make as well!  That’s key with a cookbook, nobody wants a recipe book that calls for too many ingredients, or has too many complicated steps…  It’ll end up on a shelf, parked for good.  But not OMG That’s Paleo?, it’s been going full-throttle in our kitchen for the past few days, and we keep getting stunned over and over with each great meal.  So let’s take a peek at how Juli makes this great Frittata, shall we?


• 6 eggs, whisked

• 1/2 lb Italian sausage

• 2 yellow onions, thinly sliced

• Salt & pepper to taste

• 1-2 tbsp coconut oil (to grease the 8×8 glass baking dish)


1)      Preheat oven to 350F

2)      Cook the organic Italian sausage in a large skillet over medium heat until cooked through.  Be sure to use a wooden spoon to break up the sausage while it cooks.

3)      Place the Italian sausage in the greased, glass baking dish.

4)      While pan is still hot and over medium heat, add the sliced onions to the Italian sausage grease.

5)      Cook down for about 8-10 minutes, continuously stirring onions to keep them from burning.

6)      While the onions are caramelizing, mix the eggs in with the Italian sausage in the baking dish.

7)      Once the onions are caramelized, place the onions on top throughout the baking dish, covering all the eggs and Italian sausage.

8)      Bake for 10-13 minutes or until the eggs are completely cooked through in the middle. 

Prep Time:

• 10 minutes

Cook Time:

• 13 minutes

Serves: 4-5

That’s how it’s done, Paleo folks….. Simple ingredients, simple cooking methods, and not so simple tastes!  I love that smoky Italian sausage flavor that comes with each creamy bite.  The onions really do a great job at enhancing this meal, coming out of the oven the frittata looked like it had a thick layer of cheese!  And Juli added a note about the onions as well; “The more onions you caramelize, the better. Promise you.”  I would have to agree with that tip after enjoying this delicious meal!

So be sure to go to http://www.julianbakery.com/paleo/books to purchase this awesome Paleo cookbook, and feel free to browse around and grab a few great Paleo items to help you cook up a storm!  I would recommend some of the Coconut Secret products, some Nuco Liquid Premium Coconut Oil, and definitely some Paleo Bread!  I hope you enjoyed my food blog, and please stop by again soon!
