Changed a few things up and it was great. Added crushed garlic to sausage while it was cooking then added fresh mushrooms. I used shredded mozzarella cheese instead of parmesan and also used shredded potatoes instead of cubes. This is a keeper for sure.. Read More

My family loved this recipe. I made it for Christmas morning. The next time I make it I think I would use the maple flavored sausage. Read More

Link sausages sliced in 1/4" slices pre-cooked in skillet works fine & may be cheaper than the crumbles but does add an extra step. For a veggie version; omit potatoes but add 1 c. chpd zucchini, 1/2 c. each yellow onion & red & yellow bell pepper chpd. Top evenly with 1/3 c. crumbled goat cheese & freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano chs; 1/4 c. fresh flat leaf parsley & 1/4 c. fresh basil, sliced. Add 1 or 2 more egges plus add 1 c. heavy cream. Bake in 9x13 dish ahead of time at 400* oven for 25-30 min. or until knife inserted in center comes out clean. Serve immediately OR cover with foil & chill until the next day (I have also frozen this frittata for up to one month). Re-warm in a 250* for 20-30 min. Fresh goat cheese is better than the pre-crumbled kind but it works too. Read More

This is actually how I make omelets too, but I always fire up the broiling coil while I'm heating the pan because I cook the egg mixture on medium-low heat until it starts to bubble and then I put the whole pan under the broiler for a few minutes until the top of the egg mixture cooks a bit. Then back to the pan and cook a bit more, loosen the edges and one more time under the broiler until it's slightly browned. I also used some good loose breakfast sausage from the butcher instead of pre packaged brand name sausage. VERY good recipe. Thanks for posting it! Read More

I don't see where it says to add cottage cheese to the recipe. It says parmesan cheese. I can't wait to try it this Sunday for brunch. Read More

This was a great base recipe. I used smoked bratwurst instead of sausage and since I had no potatoes I added chopped celery onion and more tomatoes. Cooked for 15 minutes and it came out perfect! Topped with shredded cheddar and bacon crumbles. Yum! Read More

My first time making a frittata and it turned out great. I used a little too much salt which I don't recommend but it was easy and flavorful. Read More
