Get ready for an amazing flavor packed frittata with a kick! I woke up this morning with a taste for an egg dish but wanted it to pack a punch. I pulled out just about everything I had in my refrigerator that I thought would taste yummy in this dish.
Here's what you'll need:
- 1 Jalapeno (seeded to reduce the heat)
- 1/2 cup chicken sausage
- 1/2 small yellow onion
- 1/2 small yellow pepper
- 1/2 small red pepper
- 1/2 small green pepper
- 1 1/2 tablespoon of good olive oil
- 1/2 cup of mixed cheddar cheese (plus extra for topping)
- 1 handful of fresh spinach leaves
- 3 large eggs + 1 egg white
- 1 tablespoon of water
- 1/2 teaspoon of salt
- 1/2 teaspoon of pepper
- 1 pinch of all spice
- 1 pinch of paprika
Pre heat oven 400 degrees. Cook veggies & sausage in olive oil on stove top until tender. Add seasoning to mixture and incorporate well (this part is very important as this is the base of the flavor of the frittata)! Next, blend eggs together well in a magic blender adding the tablespoon of water, pinch of salt, pepper & paprika. Turn stove off & pour egg mixture over veggies & sausage. Mix well and add cheese. Smooth surface & add additional cheese to create crust. Lastly, thinly slice jalapeno and place on top of mixture. Place in oven for 10 minutes or until frittata puffs up to a golden brown.
You'll know your frittata is done when you poke it with a knife in the center and the knife comes out clean with no streaks! Oh, and make your life easier by using a non stick or cast iron pan (I used a beautiful Le Creuset skillet..amazing!)
Let cool & enjoy!
