I’ve always loved cooking and eating Omelettes ever since I was introduced to them. At some point though I was also introduced to Frittatas and immediately liked them as well. To be honest, I like any kind of breakfast dish with an egg base just like tarts and casseroles too.
Frittatas are an Italian dish that are very similar to omelettes but they are cooked a little bit differently. They are really flexible as you can incorporate all kinds of ingredients into them depending on what you have in your refrigerator or what you are in the mood for.
I enjoy making dishes like this for a Saturday brunch when I’m hanging around the house and just want a slow start to the day. You can take your time waking up and drinking some coffee while you make a yummy meal.
I love to sneak some heavy cream into things I make with an egg base. It adds a really nice creaminess to the eggs.
This recipe is a pretty quick recipe and it really is delicious. I like how you can bake frittatas at the end of the recipe as opposed to the way you would cook an omelette. There’s a little less risk to burn and less stress to the method.
When I created his recipe, I was craving a breakfast casserole but I was set on making a frittata so I mixed the concept of a breakfast casserole into this recipe with the cheese, eggs, and pork sausage. This frittata goes great with some toast and jelly. Recipe included below!
- 1/2 pound ground pork sausage
- 1 cup onion, diced
- 1 Tbsp Olive oil
- 1/4 tsp garlic salt
- Pinch of red pepper
- 6 eggs
- 1 1/2 Tbsp heavy cream
- 1 tsp Kosher salt, divided
- 1/2 tsp fresh pepper
- 3/4 cup cheddar, shredded
- 1/4 cup mozzarella, shredded
- Preheat oven to 400F.
- Heat 1 Tbsp oil over medium heat in non stick pan. Whisk together eggs, heavy cream, salt, and pepper in a bowl and set aside.
- Add onions to pan and sauté for two minutes. Add sausage and break up into crumbles. Add garlic salt and red pepper flakes. Continue sautéing until the sausage is browned.
- Mix cheeses together. Spread the sausage and onions out in even layer in the pan and spread cheese out evenly over the pan.
- Pour egg mixture over pan and tilt pan around to make sure eggs make it throughout. Cook for one to two minutes until the edges set.
- Transfer to preheated oven and bake for 8 to 10 minutes until the eggs are set. Cut into the center to check the doneness. If eggs run, then cook for another minute or two.
- Let cool for five minutes and then cut into wedges. Enjoy!
