Sausage and Pepper Frittata March 12, 2009

For the first time in a long time, I decided to actually plan meals for the week!  Tonight’s meal came from the Everyday with Rachael Ray magazine.  We had some Italian sausage, so were searching for a recipe to use it for.  We already had a few pasta meals planned for the week, so we needed to find an Italian Sausage recipe that wasn’t so Italian.  Tricky!  I found this and thought it looked like it was worth a try.


Well, it was delicious.  It took even less than 30 minutes to prepare, and was very, very tasty.  Clean up was minimal too, and that definitely makes it a prize winner for me!  It calls for goat cheese, but I had feta so I used that.  The combination of the spicy sausage, the sweet peppers and the salty feta made it really delicious.  I’ll make it again for sure!  This is a great meal for breakfast, brunch or dinner.  It would just be a hard one to take somewhere since it is prepared in a skillet.


Sausage and Pepper Frittata

1 lb sweet Italian sausage, casings discarded

1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper

1 bell pepper, chopped

1 onion, chopped

1 tablespoon butter

8 large eggs

1/4 cup milk


1/2-1 cup goat cheese crumbles


In a medium nonstick, ovenproof skillet, cook the sausage and crushed red pepper, breaking up the meat, until browned, 7-10 minutes.  Using a slotted spoon, transfer to a medium bowl.

In the same skillet, add the bell pepper and onion and cook, stirring, until softened, about 7 minutes.  Stir in the cooked sausage and the butter; reserve the bowl.

Preheat the broiler.  In the same bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk and 1/2 teaspoon salt and pour into the skillet.  Cook, scrambling the mixture, until almost set; top with the goat cheese.  Broil, leaving the oven door slightly open, until set in the center, about 5 minutes.
