This is the recipe I came up with for the challenge. I ate mine with sour cream. This will probably become a regular dish.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Nelda's corn and sausage frittata recipe is something you can enjoy for breakfast, brunch, or dinner. We love versatile recipes! It's creamy with bits of corn throughout. The sausage adds a nice savory flavor with just a hint of heat from the cayenne. Once baked, the bread crumb/butter/cheese topping gives the frittata a crunchy texture. Delicious!
