How to Make Zesty Sausage Breakfast Frittata
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
- In an ovenproof skillet (I used my medium sized cast iron skillet) cook and chop the breakfast sausage until browned and in small pieces.
*** NOTE: Jimmy Dean sausage is very lean and has almost no fat that cooks out. If using a different brand or type of sausage, you may need to drain excess fat, at this point. ***
- In a large bowl, crack the 6 eggs; add salt and pepper to taste. Whisk until well blended. Add the cheddar and 1/4 cup of the quesadilla blend cheese; stir to combine.
*** NOTE: I personally did not add any salt, as the cheese and sausage have plenty, but did add a generous amount of fresh ground pepper. ***
