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

I used Turkey Italian sausage and it came out dry. Maybe It Missed the Fat From Pork Sausage. Probably Would Add Some Chopped Tomatoes Next Time For Moistness. 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
