Sausage Egg Frittata

This recipe has become a weekly staple in our house, sometimes I make it twice a week even….it’s that good.  We eat a lot of eggs in our house and making one frittata takes a whole dozen so when I go through the checkout line I get weird looks, but ya know what I just don’t care anymore….besides I get weirder looks from the amount of meat and produce we buy anyways, so I am pretty much over it.  This is the type of food that makes champions out of my kids and my husband and I  so that’s all I care about anyways.

If you are tired of preparing your eggs the same way or you just need something different in the morning then this recipe is for you.  Also if there are only a couple of people that you cook for this can be saved and reheated the next morning…if fact we do that often, because sometimes not all the kids want this, so we do have leftovers which is really nice on those mornings when you just don’t have time for cooking!
