  • 12 large eggs
  • 3 tablespoons half and half
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese shredded (about 3 1/2 ounces)
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 pound Italian sausage cassings removed
  • 1 small yellow onion diced
  • 1 red bell pepper diced
  • 2 cloves garlic minced


  • Turn on your broiler.
  • In a bowl whisk together the the eggs, half and half, salt, pepper, mozzarella, and Parmesan cheese. Set aside.
  • In a 12 inch skillet over medium heat, cook the sausage breaking it up. When it is just broken up but hasn't begun to brown, add the onion, bell pepper, and garlic. Cook until the vegetables are soft, 5 to 7 minutes.
  • Pour in the egg mixture, and beging pulling the edges of the mixture in towards the middle of the pan, working your way around the whole pan, scraping up the bottom. Cook until large chunks of eggs form in the path of the spatula but it is still very wet, about 2 minutes.
  • Shake the pan to distribute evenly. Place under the broiler for 3 to 4 minutes or until the top has begun to brown. When you cut into the middle of the frittata it will be wet still. Let sit for 5 minutes outside the oven, and the frittata will finish cooking in that time.
  • Cut and enjoy with fresh parsley and freshly grated Parmesan cheese on top.
