    1. I just made it with fresh spinach and I did not steam or sauté the spinach before hand. It turned out great, just like the first time I made it with the frozen spinach!

    1. Hi Lisa, I would think it probably would need an extra 30-60 minutes when tripled. You want the eggs to be cooked through so check it when it gets close to the 3 hour time frame and see how they look. Enjoy!

        1. You will see that this recipe calls for the sausage to be cooked before you assemble the ingredients. So yes you will need to cook and crumble the sausage before it goes into the crock pot.

        2. Thanks for the response. I was confused since the comment below mentioned beginning with raw sausage, but there’s no mention of browning it first. Now that I know what to do, I’m looking forward to trying it!!

        3. If you are available to watch every now and then as it cooks, I would suggest maybe giving it a few stirs to ensure that the sausage is breaking up into smaller portions.

  1. Hi! Can’t wait to try this!
    Can i place from freezer straight into microwave or does it need to defrost?
    How long will it last in the freezer?

    1. Hi Bec. The reheat directions are for a defrosted serving of frittata. You could cook it from frozen, it would just take a bit longer in the microwave though. USDA recommends using casseroles within 2-3 months, but thats more for quality than safety as per their website. (… )

  2. I don’t see an advantage to using a slow cooker for this. By the time I brown the sausage, chop the onion and pepper, I might as well put it in a casserole dish or 9 x 11 pan and bake it for an hour.
