I love making frittatas for breakfast when I have people over they’re easy to make; nice and big so you can feed a ton of people, and I usually have a little left over, which makes for a nice lunch later on. But oftentimes I end up throwing the same old thing into it. This Santa Fe Frittata is fun because it incorporates pork sausage and veggies with pepper jack cheese although I have to say my favorite part is the sour cream on top, so don’t forget it!
- Yield: 4 Servings
- Preparation Time: 10 Minutes
- Cooking Time: 30 Minutes
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- ½ onion, diced
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 6 ounces ground pork sausage
- ½ red bell pepper, diced
- ½ green bell pepper, diced
- Freshly ground black pepper
- 6 eggs
- ½ cup shredded pepper jack cheese
- Sliced scallion, for garnish
- Salsa, for garnish
- Sour cream, for garnish
- Fresh cilantro leaves, for garnish
- Preheat the oven to 350°F.
- In a cast-iron skillet over medium heat, heat the olive oil.
- Add the onion and garlic. Sauté for 5 to 7 minutes until the onion is softened and translucent.
- Add the sausage. Cook for 5 to 7 minutes or until browned, stirring to break up the meat.
- Add the red and green bell peppers and stir gently. Season with salt and pepper.
- In a large bowl, whisk the eggs. Arrange the onion, sausage, and pepper mixture in the skillet so the ingredients are evenly distributed. Slowly pour the eggs over the top. Increase the heat to medium high. Season with salt and pepper and cook for 3 to 4 minutes until the edges start to pull away from the skillet.
- Top the frittata with cheese and transfer to the oven. Cook for 15 to 20 minutes until the top is no longer runny. Remove from the oven, cool slightly, and serve garnished with scallion, salsa, sour cream, and a few cilantro leaves.
- Refrigerate leftovers in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
