Sausage and Cheese Frittata

By Elrond

  • 6 ounce(s) sweet Italian-sausage links, casings removed

  • 2 medium yellow peppers, cut into 2-inch by 1/4-inch strips

  • 1 large red onion, thinly sliced

  • 8 large eggs

  • 1/4 cup(s) fresh parsley or basil leaves, minced

  • 1/4 teaspoon(s) salt

  • 1/4 teaspoon(s) coarsely ground black pepper

  • 4 ounce(s) (1 cup) mozzarella cheese , shredded

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Heat nonstick 10-inch skillet with oven-safe handle (or cover handle with heavy-duty foil for baking in oven later) over medium heat. Add sausage and cook until browned, about 5 minutes, stirring frequently to break up sausage. With slotted spoon, transfer sausage to paper towels to drain.

  2. Discard all but 1 tablespoon of drippings from skillet. To skillet, add peppers, onion, and 1/2 cup water , and cook, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are tender, about 12 minutes.

  3. Meanwhile, in large bowl, with wire whisk or fork, beat eggs with parsley, salt, and pepper until blended; stir in mozzarella.

  4. Pour egg mixture over vegetables in skillet; stir in sausage. Cook 3 minutes, without stirring, or until egg mixture begins to set around edge. Place skillet in oven; bake 12 minutes or until frittata is set.

  5. To serve, place a cutting board or platter over top of skillet; invert. Remove skillet and cut frittata into wedges.

I forgot to add the title of this. It should be 'Sausage and Cheese Frittata'. I got it from Good Housekeeping and made it for dinner tonight. It was absolutely delicious so I just had to share it with everyone. It's a little high in cholesterol but the other numbers look great. Next time, though, I think I'll use a little more sausage and possibly substitute turkey Italian sausage to keep the fat down.
