Red Pepper, Smoked Sausage & Jarlsberg Breakfast Frittata Recipe

It is no secret--I love breakfast foods and I will eat them for lunch and dinner as often as I can. If you read our blog often, you find frequent frittata breakfast ideas.  Frittatas are literally one of the easiest dishes that I make—and they work perfectly for any meal. Frittata recipes take the basic frittata concept of combining vegetables, cheeses and meats with eggs and and allow me to create something entirely new from my random, hodgepodge of the week's leftovers.  This week, I had some Jarlsberg cheese (which I love) and sweet, red peppers and smoked sausage ropes.  A Red Pepper, Smoked Sausage & Jarlsberg Breakfast Frittata Recipe was easy enough on Sunday morning!

Ingredients for a Red Pepper, Smoked Sausage & Jarlsberg Breakfast Frittata
• 1 Medium Yellow Onion, Chopped 
• 8 oz. White Mushrooms, Chopped 
• 1/2 c. Red Bell Pepper, Diced
• 1 Tbsp. Butter 
• 1 Tsp. Dublin General Store All Purpose Seasoning
• 4 oz. Smoked Sausage or Polska Kielbasa, Diced  (I used Wellshire Farms Polska Kielbasa)
• 1 Tbsp. Coconut Oil (I use Island Fresh Coconut Oil)
• 6 Eggs, Lightly Beaten
• ¼ c. 2% Milk 
• 1/8 tsp. Black Pepper
• 4 oz. Jarlsberg Cheese, Diced
• 1/4 c. Shredded Cheddar Cheese

Instructions for Making a Red Pepper, Smoked Sausage & Jarlsberg Breakfast Frittata
  1. Preheat the oven. Preheat oven to 350°F. 
  2. Sauté the onion, bell peppers, and mushrooms. Heat the butter in an oven safe, 12 Inch frying pan over medium heat until hot. Avoid allowing the butter to caramelize! (A carmel sweet frittata just isn't that tasty in my book!) Add the onion and bell peppers and sauté for 2-3 minutes; add mushrooms and sauté until all vegetables are nearly tender. Add 1 tsp. of the Dublin General Store spice and smoked sausage. Cook for another 2-3 minutes. Remove the vegetable mixture from the pan and keep warm.  
  3. Prepare the egg mixture. In a small mixing bowl, combine the eggs, milk and pepper. Whisk to combine. 
  4. Build the Frittata. Melt the coconut oil in the frying pan.  Add the vegetable mixture into the pan.  Stri to coat with the coconut oil.  Spread it to an even layer around the pan.  Top the vegetables with the Jarlsberg and the Cheddar cheeses.  Pour the egg mixture evenly over the meat, cheese and veggie filling. 
  5. Cook the Frittata. Cook on the stove top over medium heat until the eggs are nearly set, about 3-5 minutes. Place frittata into preheated oven and bake uncovered until the eggs are set through, approximately another 8-10 minutes.
  6. Slice and serve. Cut the frittata into wedges and serve. We serve with fresh grapefruit and whole grain toast.
Frittatas are quick, easy to prepare and really cost effective when feeding a busy family!   My frittatas are almost always made from the week's leftovers.  A frittata makes 6-8 serving slices and leftovers store and reheat very well for make-ahead breakfasts.  I almost always make two frittatas on the weekend to have quick, busy morning breakfasts for the kids!
