Here’s a nice and easy frittata that you can pretty much make any day of the week. I have to say I love frittata, and I think they especially great for a brunch on the weekend. Frittatas are also versatile, you can pretty much put whatever you have in the fridge in them, so this particular one I made with mushrooms, sausage and mozzarella cheese. It was very tasty and scrumptious.
Turn the oven on to broil. Start off by chopping up half an onion, we don’t need a lot just for a bit of flavor. You’ll also need about a cup of sausage, I used Italian sausage here, which I removed from the casing. You can of course substitute sausage with bacon, or even chicken. In a large skillet, melt the butter and add the sausage. Break the sausage with a fork as much as you can. Cook the sausage for a minute or so.
You’ll need about 1 cup of sliced mushrooms. Add the chopped onion and mushroom to the skillet.
Saute everything for about 5 minutes. In the meantime, beat the 6 eggs in a bowl.
Season the mushrooms and sausage with salt and pepper. After the sausage has cooked and the onion is soft, pour the eggs over the mushrooms and sausage.
Cook the eggs, for just a minute and sprinkle the mozzarella over the top.
To finish this frittata, place the skillet in the oven under the broiler for a couple minutes, just until the top is nice and golden brown.
This will make a wonderful breakfast or brunch, it’s very filling and really the combination is absolutely divine.
