Two Peas and Their Pod: Recipe for Sausage and Cheese Frittata

Recipe for Sausage and Cheese Frittata

Josh made breakfast for "the boys" when Lincoln was visiting us. He cooked up a sausage, cheese, vegetable frittata. He also made some hashbrowns. I don't do eggs in the morning, so I had cereal, but I was impressed with the looks of Josh's fritatta. He did a great job!

Josh fried up some sausage, shredded some Colby cheese, and chopped the veggies. He used green pepper, tomatoes, and onions. He cooked the fritatta in an 8 inch skillet so it would be nice and thick. He started cooking it on the stove top and finished it off in the oven.

If you are an egg lover, give this a try! The boy
s sure enjoyed their nice, hearty breakfast!

Sausage and Cheese Frittata

Sausage (Josh used about a half of a tube of sausage)
6 eggs, beaten
Skim milk, a splash to add to the eggs
Green pepper, diced
Onion, diced
Tomatoes, diced
Cheese, shredded (Josh used Colby)

1. Cook the sausage. Shred cheese and chop veggies.
2. Mix the eggs with a little bit of skim milk.
3. Spray a 8 inch skillet with cooking spray. Pour in the egg mixture.
4. Add in veggies and sausage. Let cook for about 5-7 minutes. Until it is almost done.
5. To finish it off, put it in a hot oven that has been preheated to 425 degrees. Cook the frittata for a couple of minutes until it is set.
6. Carefully remove the pan from the oven and sprinkle cheese on top. Place it back in the oven until cheese is melted.
7. Remove frittata from pan and cut into wedges. Serve hot and enjoy!

I have some sausage in my freezer that I have been wanting to use. I was thinking biscuits and gravy but this seems like a better idea. Thanks! It looks great!

Wow! You know, you and Josh should really think about opening a B&B. A gourmet B&B--obviously you two have the cooking down pat. (plus with a B&B you can write off your mortgage! lol)

Yep I went to bed with Fish Taco in my belly and woke up to the smells of Frittata.

I will be honest I had never heard the word "Frittata" before I ate one but I am for sure an egg person. It was a hearty and wonderful breakfast, my jaw about hit the floor when I saw Maria pour herself a bowl of Cheerios.

Not pictured are the "Ugly Brown" hashbrowns, that may not have been much to look at, but were very tasty.

Thanks for the comments everyone!! Give this frittata a try this weekend!

Cathy-let me know if you try it with turkey sausage. I am sure it will be just as good!

Jodi-Glad you can use up some of your sausage with this recipe!

Dawn-Opening a B&B is a dream of mine. I would love it! Maybe I can convince Josh with the mortgage write off:)

Lincoln-Glad you enjoyed the breakfast!! And my cereal was quite tasty..ha!

frittatas are just as good, if not better than quiches, and they're much easier to make. yours looks fluffy and chock-full of goodness. :)
