This easy and healthy "Breakfast for Dinner" meal is a great opportunity to use up leftover veggies in the fridge. It's super versatile, because you can change it up each time and add whatever you like to the egg base - meats, cheeses, veggies, etc.

INGREDIENTS:
  • 12 eggs
  • 1/3 cup heavy whipping cream or whole milk
  • 5-10 splashes hot sauce
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 lb ground sausage
  • Frozen onion and pepper blend
  • Frozen spinach
  • 2 cups shredded colby jack cheese
INSTRUCTIONS:
  1. Preheat oven to 350* F.
  2. Whisk together first 4 ingredients and set aside. Don't overbeat.
  3. In a cast iron skillet, brown the sausage; remove from pan and drain.
  4. Saute the onions and peppers; when they're about halfway done, throw in the spinach and finish cooking.
  5. Add the sausage back in to the pan and mix together.
  6. Spread sausage and vegetables into an even layer, making sure the ingredients are evenly distributed.
  7. Add 1 cup of shredded cheese to the egg mixture, mix, and pour of the meat and vegetables and spread into an even layer, making sure sausage and vegetables are submerged.
  8. Top evenly with remaining 1 cup of shredded cheese.
  9. Cook over medium heat for about 3 minutes until the sides are just set then transfer skillet to the oven.
  10. Bake uncovered for 18-22 minutes at 350* F, or until the cheese is melted and the center barely jiggles.
  11. Let rest for 5- minutes before serving.
Frittatas start cooking on the stove and then are finished in the oven, so a well-seasoned 12” cast iron skillet is your best bet when deciding what kind of pan to use. A well-seasoned cast-iron skillet goes seamlessly from stove top to oven, boasts a natural non-stick patina and also conduct heats evenly so it will cook the frittata evenly. I have, however, used other nonstick skillets that go in the oven and it has worked okay. But I definitely recommend using a cast iron skillet if you have one.
