Italian meets the Southwest in this frittata. This has become a family favorite and my most requested breakfast dish to make. Don't leave out the sour cream - I know it sounds strange, but trust me - it's delicious and helps cool down the spiciness.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Typically a frittata not a formal dish and thrown together with leftovers. Frittatas have become very popular in recent years with cooks coming up with creative combinations. This Southwest frittata is a great example of this. A hash of spicy sausage, peppers, onions, and potatoes elevates this to a more formal dish. Pepper jack sprinkled on top adds just the right amount of cheesiness. Serve with sour cream and a bit of pico de gallo at your next brunch for a dish everyone will be talking about. It's an outstanding breakfast for dinner recipe too. The Test Kitchen

How to Make Southwest Fritatta

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350. In a 12-inch cast iron pan or large ovenproof sauté pan, add oil and sausage.
  2. Cook, stirring often to break up the sausage until no longer pink – about 5 minutes.
  3. Remove sausage to a paper towel-lined plate with a slotted spoon and set aside.
  4. Into the pan, add the onion, pepper, jalapeno, and garlic. Season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring often until veggies are softened – about 8 minutes.
  5. Add the sausage back into the pan and stir to combine.
  6. Add the potatoes and stir.
  7. In a bowl, whisk together the eggs and milk. Season with salt, pepper, and dill.
  8. Pour egg mixture over top of the hash tilting the pan to evenly distribute the eggs.
  9. Sprinkle the cheese over top and place pan in the oven.
  10. Cook until cheese is bubbly and browned and eggs are done about 10 minutes.
  11. Remove from oven and invert the frittata onto a cutting board or serving platter. Or, this can be served from the pan. Slice and serve with a dollop of sour cream and the pico de gallo.
