#76 Sausage & Potato Frittata

1/2 a medium onion (finely diced)
2 small potatoes (finely diced)
1/2 half pound ground sausage
1/2 cup diced green peppers
5-6 eggs
2 tablespoons milk
~1/2 cup cheese (optional)
Salt and pepper to taste

In a saucepan, cover the potatoes with water and boil for about 12-15 minutes, until fork tender. Drain them when they are done (I put them back in the pot to keep them warm and get rid of the excess water).

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. In a large skillet, cook the sausage until cooked through. Remove from pan and drain if needed. Add the onion and green peppers to skillet (I just used the extra fat from the sausage). Cook until the onions are limp and see-through (not browned yet).

Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, whisk the eggs, milk, salt, and pepper until lightly beaten. Spray an 8"x8" baking dish (or a round cake pan) and layer the sausage, potatoes, onions/peppers, and cheese. Pour the eggs over everything (you can mix it a little if you like).

Bake for about 25-35 minutes. It takes my oven about 35 minutes but the recipe calls for 25 minutes. Just make sure the eggs are cooked through and not runny (you can use a toothpick). Let cook for 5 minutes. Cut and serve. You can make this vegetarian if you like, I have used mushrooms, bacon, and sundried tomatoes before. I also wanted to try thinly slicing the potatoes and laying them on the bottom.

This is a very delicious breakfast or dinner and husband approved!
