Sausage Basil and Tomato Frittata

Frittatas are a wonderful way to use up eggs and little bits and pieces in your fridge. They’re not fussy at all and you make them all in ONE pan. You know how much I hate doing dishes so this is fantabulous. This frittata (which is basically the Italian cousin of the omelet) is filled to the brim with sausage, onions, garlic, bell pepper and cheesy goodness. And then it’s kissed with fresh tomatoes and basil for the finishing touch. Now, who wouldn’t want that for breakfast ; )

I made this sausage, tomato & basil frittata as part of Johnsonville Kitchen’s Wake Up To Better Breakfast Promotion.
