Sausage and Veggie Frittata

Sure I could call this a sausage and spinach egg bake or something more obvious like a supreme omelette or a crustless quiche but then I couldn’t emphasize the fancy word that best describes this egg concoction by saying the word FRIT-TA-TA over and over.

Aside from being fun to say, frittata simply refers to an italian version of an egg cake. And I think we can all agree that frittata sounds more appetizing than egg cake so let’s just go with that.

The recipe is simple enough. Some leftover andouille sausage, several eggs and your choice of veggies, sauteed in a cast iron skillet and then thrown under the broiler for a few minutes to get that nice golden brown top that you don’t see in my photos because I was too hungry to wait for it.

Slice and serve with hot sauce. Cholula preferably but any hot sauce will do. You could serve it plain if you prefer it that way but everyone knows an Italian frittata with French sausage is best served with mexican pepper sauce.

    I’m adding some garlic salt instead of garlic cloves, hope it’s fine, as I don’t wanna use garlic here directly…

        Hey Sarah, I would love to try the recipe with garlic salt asap. Happy Sunday 🙂

        If you plan on replacing fresh garlic with dry, I would recommend using garlic powder or omit the regular salt in the recipe. I’d hate for it to be too salty for you in the end. Good luck.
