Easy Italian Fritata

This is probably the easiest egg recipe I have found, and is very good.

Brown 1 lb. of sausage (I used a hot sausage that really went well with this, and wasn't too spicy for anyone)in a frying pan. While it is browning, add one medium, chopped onion, one chopped bell pepper (I used half of a red and half of a green), and 1 lb. of sliced, fresh mushrooms. Cook together untill the onions are translucent, and just starting to brown. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees. Lightly oil a 9 x 13 pan. Put the sausage/vegetable mixture into the pan. I seasoned this mixture lightly with a Seasoned Salt. (Mine is actually a salt free Mrs. Dash) Crack and lightly beat 12-14 eggs. Pour the beaten eggs over the meat mixture, and bake for about 25 minutes, or until a knife inserted comes out clean, and the eggs are set. Serve and enjoy. The only real work for this is chopping up vegetables, and browning everything. I topped mine the last few minutes with a handful of cheddar cheese. You can cut this recipe in half, and the cooking time drops to 15-20 minutes. The full recipe serves 10-12 as a side dish (pieces cut like cake), but fewer as the main.

I've made this also using cooked potatoes, or even some of the frozen diced hash browns (OreIda). We really like it and put salsa on it. :0)

Sounds good. Now is there a Healthy version????

This IS the healthy version. Fry everything in olive oil, and the fat is not too bad. Take out the cheese and sausage, and it is even healthier. Add a little red pepper flake and garlic to make up for the removal of the sausage.
