Cut this Tasty Frittata into small squares enjoy with a crisp white wine or cut into larger pieces and eat it for breakfast. Don't be afraid of chard, it adds the right texture and healthy nutrients to this dish. We have experimented with using Goat Cheese to cut back on the salty-ness.

- 1 12-ounce bunch Swiss chard, stems and center ribs removed
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 cup chopped onion
- 8 ounces mild Italian sausages, casings removed, sausage broken into 1-inch pieces

HOW TO PREPARE
Preheat oven to 325°F. Spray 8 x 8 x 2-inch glass baking dish with nonstick spray. Bring large pot of salted water to boil. Add Swiss chard and cook just until wilted, about 2 minutes. Drain. Finely chop chard, then place in kitchen towel and squeeze dry. Set chard aside. Heat oil in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion to skillet and sauté until soft, 4 to 5 minutes. Add sausage and sauté until brown and cooked through, breaking up with fork, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove from heat and cool. Whisk eggs, cream, salt, and pepper in large bowl to blend. Add chard and cooled sausage mixture, then feta; stir to blend. Transfer mixture to prepared baking dish. Bake frittata until set in center, 45 to 55 minutes. Transfer baking dish to rack and cool frittata 15 to 20 minutes. Place platter atop dish with frittata. Using oven mitts, hold baking dish and platter firmly together and invert frittata onto platter; place another platter atop frittata and invert again so that frittata is right side up. Cut frittata into 20 pieces.
