At the end of the day, I feel like all the frittatas I have made are slightly the same, but all so different. Does that make sense? Yeah, definitely not. This one is delicious, though. And it’s super filling have the sweet potato all throughout the frittata. Ok, enough food talk. Let’s move on.

So this is going to annoy some of you people, but remember everyone has to make there own choices depending on what suits their lifestyle. Big speech for such a small topic. We decided to get a little potty pad for Jackson (my 11 week old French bulldog) to put on our deck. You see, it’s been a little hard for him in our apartment which has a pretty long hallway before you reach the door then another long hallway until you get to the outside door, then a few flights of stairs. By the time we’ve reached downstairs, Jackson’s forgot the entire reason of going down there. Yes, he goes to the bathroom, but he has forgotten all about how to signal that he has to go. He never seemed to care much for the bell. So we decided to get him a little grassy pad for outside for him to call bathroom.

Well, it worked perfectly. He went straight to it to go to the bathroom as soon as we put it down. Now he just goes right to the door whenever he needs to go outside. I can’t say it’s worked 100% of the time, but I’ll give it 80%. He has good and bad days. Yesterday was bad. But we got through it with his adorable little face. It’s so hard to get mad at him when he is the most adorable thing ever. Except for the biting thing. I’m hoping that he can have more play dates with dogs soon so he can start learning when mean vs. nice biting is like. It’s just hard because most of our friends have big dogs that think baby Jackson is annoying and pretty much ignore him. Someday he’ll have a friend for life that is his own size. Hopefully he’s a frenchie too.

Ok, here’s more pictures of him since I know you were dyyyyying for some.




I can’t believe it’s already Thursday. I’m trying to decide if I should post a cookie recipe tomorrow. OK I DECIDED. I will. I missed you guys way too much while I was in Austin, I need to give you as many recipes as possible.!

Speaking of recipes, I’ve already decided what I’m going to make for dessert on my birthday on Tuesday next week. The only thing I’m going to say is that it’s going to have chocolate in it. Among many other things, but lots of chocolate and lots of other sweet stuff. I’m going to get lots of hate for this recipes but I don’t care. It’s my birthday and I’ll stuff my face with chocolate if I want to.


Bacon Potato Sausage Frittata

  • Yield: 4-5 1x


  • 1/2 pound bacon, cut into lardons
  • 1 small sweet potato or yam, diced into small cubes
  • 1/2 pound italian sausage (or other ground meat)
  • 8 eggs, whisked
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground paprika
  • salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  2. Place bacon in a large cast iron skillet or in an oven safe sauté pan. Cook bacon until crispy. Remove and place on a paper towel lined plate. Remove bacon fat as necessary, leaving behind 3-4 tablespoons.
  3. Add sweet potato, coat in bacon fat and let cook for 10-12 minutes, or until the sweet potatoes are soft.
  4. Add italian sausage to the pan with the potatoes, break apart with a wooden spoon and cook until no pink remains.
  5. Once sausage is cooked through, remove pan from heat to let cool.
  6. In a bowl, whisk together eggs, garlic powder, red pepper, paprika and salt and pepper.
  7. Once pan has cooled, pour in eggs and add the bacon on top of the sausage and potatoes. Mix well to evenly distribute the eggs around the pan.
  8. Place in oven and bake for 12-15 minutes until the eggs are fully cooked in the middle of the pan.

Oh, Hi! I’m Juli.

I’m a food hoarder. And a really bad dancer. If you don’t know me well, you will probably not understand my humor. Therefore, I apologize ahead of time. Thanks for listening to my ramblings of my ever-changing life and trusting my kitchen mishaps. Your trust in me is appreciated.

  1. I make a lot of frittatas and sometimes only vary a couple of ingredients like meat and spices but they are each unique, and so easy to make so yes I know what you mean 🙂 love that I always have leftovers for snacks too.

    You are doing an amazing job with jackson! Just do what works for you! Looking forward to the bday recipe next week!

  2. LOL- I saw the pic and instantly thought this was a giant chocolate chip cookie recipe (bizookie) Guess I have chocolate on the mind today 🙂

  3. JACKSON IS SO CUTE!!!!!! Thank you for the pictures! Oh, and I think the pad for your balcony sounds brilliant. He’s still a baby, so giving him baby steps makes perfect sense!

  4. Pee Pad on your deck = GENIUS!
    I had a small dog growing up. We tried to potty train her outside and it was impossible, no matter what we did! So we trained her to do all of her business on newspaper inside in a place that wasn’t visible for anyone (because you know those weird non-dog people get so offended, ugh) and she did that for all 16 years of her life!!
    It was also great because if our family was running late getting home, we didn’t have to worry about her having to hold her pee/poo!!
    You’re doing a great job with that adorable little guy!
    I have a big&CRAZY Labradoodle now. Her teething phase was….umm…..painful! Once those baby shark teeth come out he will calm the biting down! Mine used to come after my face too!

  5. I got a puppy from the shelter that I could not potty train at all. Someone made a comment that she did not know what it was like to go in grass she has always gone on cement. So I opened my patio door and instanly she was potty trained. I keep the slider open a bit and she comes and goes as she pleases. I keep it clean, she is happy I am happy.

    Do what works for you!

  6. I’m loving the pics of Jackson! Jackson is starting to overshadow my love for the pics of your recipes. Jackson is so cute!!

  7. Jackson is ridiculously cute….OMG! And does anyone know where Juli’s ring in the pic with her giving Jackson kisses came from? It’s like a criss-cross thing. I saw Lauren Conrad wearing one just like it, and I love it! Anyone, Bueller?

  8. Jackson is adorable!!!! and this recipe, YUM! I made your asparagus frittata last week and had it whenever I was short on time. Thank you for all of your recipes!!

  9. OMG that puppy is so freaking adorable! I almost can’t stand it. The frittata looks yummy too…will try it this weekend.

  10. SO… will you tell us what you’re making for your bday? I promise that *I* won’t judge you! My bday was yesterday and I made those Carrot Cake Chocolate Chunk Breakfast Cookies aaaaaand I used Hershey’s Cinnamon chips instead. Gasp at my violating that paleo recipe with non-paleo chips.

    Um, they were amazing by the way. You’re a genius, man.

  11. We had a potty pad on our patio & lillte Olive LOVED it! The only prob was that it took her about a YEAR to pee outside again 🙁 Needless to say now that we have a house she uses the doggie door 🙂

  12. Jackson will learn. I babysit my friend’s Frenchie, Ivan and his regular home requires a 17 floor elevator ride. He had an outdoor potty pad too as a pup.

  13. This couldn’t have come at a better time! I made it as soon as I saw the recipe. Used breakfast sausage links in place of Italian sausage, sauteed yellow onions with potatoes and added green onions on top. It totally hit the spot and I have awesome leftovers! Holla! Juli saves the day!

  14. I have a French Bulldog too, and they are notorious for being difficult to potty train. Good thing they are so cute. Good luck! I’m glad he’s making progress.

  15. Looks so good!! If I were to put the egg mixture in muffin tins instead, how long should I bake them? I’ve tried egg muffins before and I seem to overcook them pretty frequently 😉

  16. So, your puppy is absolutely adorable! Keep taking pictures 🙂 Just watch out for those nylabones. My little pup loved them, and she devoured one, gnawing it right down. Now she has a rasp in her voice from the plastic getting stuck in her throat, I think; there will be a vet visit very soon in her future. Apparently there are lawsuits pending against the company…

  17. Whenever i see or hear the word “Fritatta”…i always giggle because i hear Schmidt, on New Girl, saying it in his unique way of saying it. He says alot of words uniquely lol

  18. OMG! I love the puppy pictures of Jackson. I just got caught by one of my co-workers ogling the pictures of him. I want a dog so bad but my schedule is too crazy right now. These pictures are making my day. Who knew that clicking on a frittata recipe would make me so happy! Thanks!

  19. My bichon stopped biting after a few months, once her baby teeth fell out. I had chew toys but her favorite thing to bite was my forearm.

  20. Just made this and it turned out fantastic. Thanks for doing what you do…it is appreciated by me and many!!!!

  21. Made this for my family for Easter brunch and it was loved by all! Only negative… there weren’t any leftovers for me to take home.

  22. I can’t wait to try out this recipe. It looks delicious. And your puppy is just so cute. . My neighbors just got one that looks just like your puppy. I totally get puppy pads for little dogs, their tummies just aren’t big enough to hold it. I’d never use one personally, but that’s just cause I like bigger dogs. Thankfully my apartment complex is tiny so it’s only a short distance to the outside. I agree with kathy, my dog stopped biting at the 6 month mark, she stopped most of her chewing at that point too, so that was nice.

  23. I have to try very hard to like eggs, but not hard to like with this recipe.
    Love the puppy pics, we have had toy poodle and Shih Tzu and both had taken about a year to housebreak. Just do whatever works for your household!
    We now have larger dogs (Lab and collies) and they housebreak lots quicker, and can go 10-12 hours without accidents (i work from home so that hardly ever happens).
    I adore your website, the recipes are great, its my “go-to” source for what to make Next!

  24. Bacon and Sausage are heavily processed foods. I see proscuitto on another recipe. I see cookies as well which contained milled flower, sugar (which is heavily processed, even “in the raw”), etc. Isn’t that pretty much all not paleo?

    1. let’s get something straight, i think you’re trying to spell flour. FLOWER is a plant. the FLOURS I use are made from nuts or coconuts. if you are not a fan of a certain kind of sugar, use the kind you are comfortable with. if you are not comfortable with the kinds of bacon and sausage that are sold at your local store, find a farm to get unprocessed meat. finding foods that work for your body is what paleo is all about.

  25. I just prepared this recipe. I’m still reveling in the glow. OMG this recipe is AWESOME!!!! I used one hot Italian Sausage and one mild from my local Whole Foods. The result was incredible. I’ve shared it with my other Paleo friends. Thank you SO much.

  26. My boyfriend is highly adverse to sweet potatoes/yams (because he is an insane person) is there something that I could easily sub in for the yams? Love your recipes! Thanks!!

  27. Jules…I like you. think you’re really cool. love the idea of most of your recipes, but good grief. I have been at making this stupid frittata for almost 2 hours. 325*…? it took the bacon almost 35 minutes to cook, then the whole thing wasn’t cooked after 20 minutes in the oven. what gives? this sucks! I can’t spend this much time cooking food… 🙁

    1. that makes absolutely no sense. you should check the temp of your oven if it is actually correct. that can’t be right. are you using a super small skillet, because bacon should only take 15 min max

  28. I hate to cook, first off. But something about trying your recipes makes me super excited. And I enjoy making them! Then, when they keep turning out to be life-changing, I want to cook more. So weird. This is no exception. So delicious. I love the red pepper flakes with the crunchy bacon chunks. Heaven.

  29. I love frittatas because you can make them with whatever leftover things you have, and they’ll pretty much always turn out delicious! They’re fridge glue!My usual stuff I have on hand to make a frittata usually winds up being some breakfast sausage I have on hand (I get the Isernio’s Chicken Breakfast Sausage to make breakfast sandwiches), some pepperoncinis, red onion, topped with either Parmesan or goat cheese, depending on what I have.
