A new spin on breakfast, leftovers will be great to grab on the go throughout the week.
3/4 cup chopped bacon ( I use Beelers Bacon Ends)
1/2 cup chopped yellow onion
1/4 cup chopped green pepper
3cups *(see note) pre-cooked crumbled breakfast sausage (see here for recipe, probably about a pound, I make 3-4 pounds at a time)
1 TBSP Bacon fat or other oil
1/2 tsp basil
salt and pepper
Bacon, onions and green peppers ready to saute.
Frittata going into the oven.
Ready to eat.
Preheat your oven to Broil. In a 10 inch cast iron skillet, combine bacon, onion and green onion, bacon grease (if needed) and saute on med-high for about 5 minutes stirring often. While that is happening you can work on cracking your eggs into a medium bowl, adding the basil and salt and pepper if you would like. Beat them to combine. Then add the sausage to your skillet and saute another 3-4 minutes until heated through and mixture is very hot. Pour egg mixture over and cook over low heat for about 4-5 minutes, then remove from the burner and place in hot oven under broiler about 6 inches away, for another 4-5 minutes (or until eggs are done). Remove from oven, slice and enjoy! The girls and I have enjoyed this for breakfast the last 2 mornings. Delicious!
Oh, and be careful not to over cook this or you will have a very rubbery, dry, mess, if you know what I mean.
*NOTE* The Frittata in the pictures has more meat because I used 4 cups, we decided it was to much meat so I reduced it to 3 cups. We like the layer of egg above the meat, so feel free to use more, it's really how you like it that matters. Pin It
