These Turkey Sausage Mini Frittatas are an easy, lighter, dairy-free, low carb breakfast you’ll want to make again and again! You’ll start by transforming lean ground turkey breast into a super flavorful sausage by mixing in a few dried seasonings. I love doing this because you get the full flavor of sausage for far less calories or WW Freestyle Smartpoints than using traditional sausage. Then you’ll cook your sausage and combine it with fresh spinach, eggs, and creamy Almond Breeze Unsweetened Original almondmilk to bake into filling, flavorful Turkey Sausage Mini Frittatas! Though they are mini by name, I think you’ll find these muffin-sized frittatas to make quite a satisfying breakfast. I love serving these with a side of fresh fruit. Plus, if you’re grabbing breakfast on your way out the door, these Frittatas are easy to make ahead and pack for a portable on-the-go meal. Better still, each of these mini Frittatas is just 69 Calories, 1 gram of Carbohydrates, or 0 WW Freestyle SmartPoints. That’s right, ZERO WW points and just ONE gram of Carbs!
If you’ve never tried Almond Breeze almondmilk, you’re in for a real treat. You probably already know that they’re great for those following a dairy-free diet, but they’re also a fantastic better for you choice for us dairy-eaters as well! I particularly love Almond Breeze Unsweetened Original almondmilk as a tasty, low calorie, low sugar alternative to cow’s milk. A cup of Almond Breeze Unsweetened Original almondmilk has 30 calories and 0 grams of added sugar and it is a fantastic source of calcium and vitamins. Not only does it provide all this nutrition with less calories and sugar, it also tastes great on its own and in recipes like these Turkey Sausage Mini Frittatas or my One-Pot Creamy Garlic Chicken Pasta. In addition to loving its almondmilk, I’m also a big fan of Almond Breeze’s Almondmilk Creamer, both in my coffee and in recipes. Make sure to take a look at my recipe for Strawberry Almond Cream Pancakes as well using Almond Breeze Almondmilk Creamer!

Stir (or mush with your hands or a fork) until the Turkey is well combined with the seasonings. Mist a medium nonstick skillet with cooking spray and bring to medium heat.
