Quick & Easy Frittata Recipe

I was asked to make a breakfast for a Teacher Appreciation breakfast and this one that my sister-in-law makes came right to mind!

It was super easy and didn’t take me hours in the kitchen!

Even my little 4-year-old helped me whisk the eggs!

This also makes a great breakfast for dinner!

Ingredients: 

1 pound Jimmy Dean Sausage

1 package Simply Potatoes Diced Onions and Potatoes

1/2 yellow onion

1 Dozen Eggs

1/4 cup shredded cheese

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

In a skillet, brown sausage and set aside.

Sauté onions in olive oil.

Add potatoes in with onions and cook according to package (cover so the potatoes steam)

While potatoes cook, whisk up the dozen eggs with a little bit of milk, salt & pepper. Add in cheese.

Once potatoes are soft, pour the egg mixture over.

Cook on stove top for 5-6 minutes until the side begin to pull away from the pan (see my picture)

Transfer skillet to oven for 16-18 minutes or until set.

Enjoy!

 

 

 

 

Spinach and Sausage Noodle Bake

I know I just did a recipe share, but I’m kind of obsessed with eating, OK?!

I had bought this package of ground sausage at Publix a while back because it looked interesting. I thought, “that looks different!” “I could make something cool with that!”

Meanwhile, it sat in my freezer for months. LOLZ

I finally took it out last night and couldn’t think of a DAMN THING to make with it.  Pinterest to the rescue. I found this recipe and it sounded pretty good, somewhat healthy (what?! it has spinach!) and easy to make.

Only problem? I didn’t have shells. I did have this fancy ass pasta. Pennoni Rigati. Is it Penne? Rigatoni? I have no f-ing idea. I don’t even know where I got this!

Anywho, so I improvised and this is what I came up with:

Spinach and Sausage Noodle Bake

Ingredients

1 lb. ground sausage

Handful of spinach

4 tsp. garlic powder

1 tsp. oregano

4 cups ricotta cheese

1 package (8-12 oz) mozzarella cheese

3/4 cup parmesan cheese

2 eggs

1 jar spaghetti sauce (I use the Fixate Grandma’s Sauce recipe)

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Brown and drain the sausage.

Toss the spinach in the same pan and cook 1-2 minutes, until wilted.

Cook the noodles according to package directions.

In a mixing bowl, mix together ricotta cheese, mozzarella cheese, eggs, garlic powder, oregano and parmesan cheese.

Pour spaghetti sauce in the bottom of pan (I used a 8X8, but you can use a 9X13 also).

Drain noodles (whichever kind you use).

Place noodles on top of sauce. (This is where you would stuff the shells if you used shells)

Since I did not use shells, I just put the ricotta cheese mixture on top of the noodles.

Top with ground sausage. Then sprinkle top with mozzarella and parmesan cheeses.

Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 25-35 minutes. I baked uncovered for the last 5 minutes to melt the cheese on the top.

Enjoy!
