Sausage, Pepper, & Onion Frittata #frittata #breakfastrecipe

Frittata recipes are a great way to use up extra ingredients in your refrigerator. This Sausage, Pepper, & Onion Frittata was inspired by some left over pizza ingredients.

Have you ever seen the movie “Morning Glory?”  It with Rachel McAdams, Harrison Ford, and Diane Keaton.  If you haven’t seen it yet, you need to!  It’s a great movie.  But anyway, I had a point with that.  There is a part of the movie where Harrison Ford talks about the skills to making a Frittata.  He talks about how he learned to make them, which is quite amusing and that you can add anything to them.  Now, whenever I make a frittata at home, I think of him talking to me in the kitchen saying “you can add just about anything to a frittata”.  Well, let me tell you.  He’s right!

We had people over a recently and I made Pizzas on the grill. I ended up having some left over pizza ingredients, so as a way to use them up, I threw them into a frittata and called it a day.  This Sausage, Pepper, & Onion Frittata is one of my favorite unplanned thrown together dishes.  Frittatas are a great avenue to use up any leftover ingredients you might have before they go bad, and are super quick to make.

By the way, in the movie, Harrison Ford gives the secret to making your frittatas “fluffy”.  If you’re wondering what it is, as I’m sure you all are.  The key to a “fluffy” frittata is a hot pan at the start! 🙂 Now, go get the movie “Morning Glory” and make a frittata!

To get started, in a large mix 8 eggs and 1/2 cup milk. Set aside. Preheat oven to 350º.

  1. I’ve actually never seen the movie, but I adore all the actors in there! Thank you for the recommendation..now if I can only find the time to watch it haha. Soon enough..
    This looks fabulous, Krista! I love making frittata as I only have to dirty one pan ;). As much as I like goat cheese, I’ve never added it to frittata before. Another fantastic idea!

    1. Oh gosh girl! You need to see it. It is definitely a good movie, with a happy ending of course. Love the “feel good movies”. 🙂 Just use it as a study break!

      The goat cheese in this is my favorite part, I am basically obsessed with goat cheese and will add it to anything. Thanks for stopping by and the sweet comments.
