Potato and Sausage Fritatta

Beth M.


I forgot to remove something from the freezer for supper, and I just decided to use up leftovers somehow.
Realizing I had half a bag of frozen hash brown potatoes, I decided to make a fritatta, using things I had. There's a recipe on the bag, and I substituted the herbs and cheese, because I didn't have the ones listed; and I added four sausage patties that I chopped and browned first. It was delicious and so easy!
Since I didn't take a picture of it fresh out of the oven, I decided to reheat some in the morning for a picture and for "breakfast". It is great for breakfast also!
