Ingredients:

Makes 4 servings.

1 teaspoon olive oil

2 medium breakfast sausage links, chopped

1 red bell pepper, chopped

3 small red potatoes, chopped

½ cup pepper jack cheese, shredded

1 avocado, cubed

5 eggs, whisked together

salt & pepper to taste

6' non-stick pan

Preparation:

1. Preheat oven to 375-400 degrees Fahrenheit. Sauteé sausage links in 1 tsp olive oil. Remove from pan when crisp and browned. Reserve oil.

2. Sauteé red potatoes in remaining oil until tender. Turn off burner and remove from heat.

3. Layer sausage and bell pepper over potatoes. Sprinkle with salt & pepper.

4. Evenly pour the egg mixture over the ingredients. Drop in avocado and sprinkle with shredded cheese.

5. Place the whole pan into the oven and bake for 12-17 minutes. Cheese should be browned and eggs should be a bit puffed up (not at all liquid in the center.)

6. Carefully remove pan from oven and cover handle with a towel or potholder so no one accidentally grabs it! Let sit for a couple minutes.

7. Turn the frittata out onto a cutting board and serve.

Meal Prep Tip:

Frittatas are one of the easiest breakfasts to make, but they are great anytime and reheat well as long as you don't overdo it. Microwaving on low power or using a HotLogic Mini to reheat will greatly reduce the chances of receiving rubbery frittata.
