Potato, Sausage and Pepper Frittata

Potato, Sausage and Pepper Frittata

Monday is typically pizza night at our house.

There’s something about the first day back to school and work after the weekend that pushed dinner waaaaay down the priorities list.

The thing is, Terrence is kind of tired of pizza.

Even though it’s my favorite food in the entire world, I am, too.

So now I’m experimenting with meals that take minimum effort, but have maximum impact.

This Monday I thought I’d make a Spanish Tortilla.

I’d seen a recipe that looked good one of my Martha Stewart Living magazines, but of course, the night I needed it, I couldn’t find it!

I tried to recreate the recipe the best that I could from my memory.

Yeah, I ended up with a frittata.

I’ll never forget the first time I learned how to make a frittata from my friend Christine, and neither will my family.

There was a time in my life when I made frittatas just about every single week!

What Ingredients Do You Need To Make A Frittata?

Making a frittata is incredibly easy because you only need a few ingredients:

  • Eggs
  • Milk (just a little bit)
  • Salt and Pepper
  • A filling: this could be anything you have in the fridge like veggies, different cheeses, meat. Anything works!
  • (Optional) Cheese

How do you make a Potato, Sausage, and Pepper Frittata?

To make a potato, sausage, and pepper frittata, you’ll start with basic frittata ingredients and add the special stuff. 

In the case of this recipe, the special ingredients are potatoes, green and red peppers, sausage, and cheddar cheese.

Depending on the vibe you’re going for, you can add Italian seasoning, or go for a more Creole flavor with seasoned salt and paprika.

This frittata is perfect for breakfast, lunch, or dinner!
