Sausage and Pepper Frittata


1 lb Italian sausage
4 large red potatoes
5 green bell peppers
2 large yellow onions
10 eggs
1/2 cup whole milk
1/4 cup fresh-grated Asiago cheese
3 tbsp olive oil
Fresh-cracked black pepper


1 – Preheat oven to 375F. Cut the sausage into 1-inch-thick slices. Peel the potatoes if desired. Cut the potatoes into 1/2-inch-thick slices. Clean and slice the bell peppers into thin strips. Peel and dice the onions. Beat the eggs in a bowl, and whisk in the milk and cheese.

2 – Heat the oil to medium temperature in a large ovenproof frying pan. Add the sausage and potatoes. Cover, and cook for 5 minutes. Turn the sausage and potatoes, and cover. Continue cooking, turning the sausage and potatoes and stirring occasionally until the sausage is cooked and the potatoes are tender. Add the peppers and onions, and stir. Cover, and cook for 5 minutes.

3 – Pour in the egg mixture, and stir to mix.

4 – Place the pan in the oven. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until the egg is set. Sprinkle with black pepper and serve.
