Baked Provolone and Sausage Frittata
Served with a salad, you can have an easy dinner on the table in under an hour with this Baked Provolone and Sausage Frittata.
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 onion diced
- 1/2 pound mild turkey sausage casings removed (I used hot pork sausage)
- 8 large eggs
- 1/3 cup whole milk
- 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
- 1 red bell pepper cored, seeded and diced
- 3 cups provolone cheese shredded
- 1/4 cup flat-leaf parsley chopped
Preheat the oven to 350.
Heat the oil in a medium skillet and over medium-high heat. Add the onion and cook until translucent about 3 minutes. Add the sausage and cook until browned about 5 minutes.
While the sausage is browning, whisk together the eggs, milk and salt. Stir the red bell pepper and the 1/4 cup of parsley into the sausage mixture. Pour the egg mixture over the top. Turn the heat down to medium-low and let it cook for about 2 minutes without stirring to let the eggs set some.
Top with the cheese.
Place in the oven and bake for 20-30 minutes or until puffed and golden and set in the center.
Cut into wedges (4-6) – we are definitely a four wedge family!
Sausage - can use turkey sausage, hot or mild Italian sausage or even a breakfast pork sausage.
Cheese - provolone, mozzarella, or fontina all work great. Or just use whatever cheese you have - a melty cheese will work better than one that doesn't melt well.
