“Rise and shine! Here's a quick and easy hearty breakfast dish, that serves one or two. Delicious! Use ham or crisp crumbled bacon in place of the breakfast sausage links, if desired. Or make yours a vegetarian frittata. Recipe is easily doubled or tripled, to feed more people.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a medium non-stick skillet, melt the butter and the olive oil over medium heat.
  2. Add the potatoes and peppers evenly in one layer into the pan; cook for about 5-7 minutes, turning once or twice.
  3. Next add the onions, tomatoes and sausages; cook and stir for 5 minutes until sausages are hot. Use a metal spatula to cut up the tomatoes and sausages into bite size pieces.
  4. In a small bowl, beat the eggs with a little water & add pepper to taste.
  5. Pour eggs all at once over the potato mixture in the pan, but do not stir.
  6. Cook for about two minutes until eggs are set, then off the heat, lift wtih a spatula and let uncooked eggs settle to bottom of pan. Sprinkle with cheese, and let rest a minute or two until the cheese melts. To serve, you may slice and serve the frittata, or stir gently for a frittata-scramble.
  7. Tip: traditionally a frittata is set under the broiler for the last 3-4 minutes, but I chose to skip this step as I like my eggs set but not dry. Be sure to use an oven-proof skillet if you choose to broil your fritatta.
  8. Turn out onto a plate and serve with a fresh snipped parsley garnish.
