The sausage and potato frittata recipe provides with you tons of optional mix-ins, even using leftovers. Cheap, quick and tasty! More here...

Unlike our sweet Pear Frittata Recipe, this sausage and potato frittata is sure to please those who prefer savory foods. You will find this recipe versatile for a few reasons. First, you can add any vegetable or meat to it. If you love cheese, several varieties make a great frittata topping. Second, you can make the 6-egg recipe we show here, or double it for a 12-egg family meal option.

Portion Size

This recipe will easily feed 2-people or 1-person with leftovers. If doubled (to 12-eggs) you should be able to serve 4 individuals, easily. I recommend using a 3-quart 9” pan if doubling the recipe. Also, keep in mind the cooking time will be a little longer too.

Side items such as our Buttermilk Biscuit Recipe would be a delightful addition. Maybe toast with jam, hashbrowns, fruit or a garden salad would all work well to help stretch the meal – if you find you need to do so. The supplement dish may depend on what you choose to put into your frittata. A delicate tasting ham and cheese would pair up well with toast or hashbrowns. But if you went with hardier meat, such as sausage in this recipe you may want a green garden salad. 

Cost

The main cost of any frittata will be the eggs. The next expense will be from the mix-in options. At least this area you have control over. To keep the meal low cost, we use leftovers to build an amazing tasting frittata. Other times we will pick up a specific sausage or cheese (on sale) to make the frittata.

Here is a savings tip for the cooked potatoes this recipe calls for: When I make mashed potatoes I will reserve one cup or more of cooked potatoes before mashing. This gives us the option to have fried country-style potatoes, potato pancakes, potato salad, or add them to the frittata.

Does your family have a random hotdog or two in the fridge or freezer? Maybe you picked up a hotdog or sausage your family really did not are for. That has happened to us. Well, now is the perfect time to chop it up in small pieces and make them eat it. Masked in the frittata, that is. 

Frittata Mix-Ins

Think of the frittata as being the egg version of a pizza. Weird, maybe. But, when you consider all the different pizza toppings, those same goodies will easily mix into this frittata. 

  • Meats: pepperoni, salami, ham, bacon, chicken, or sausage (or hotdog as per above).
  • Cheese toppings: cheddar, Mexican blend, feta, ricotta, or pepper jack.
  • Veg: any peppers, onion, mushrooms, spinach, tomatoes, zucchini or artichoke hearts.

Some not so typical pizza vegetable options for the frittata would be: potatoes, asparagus, eggplant, corn, broccoli, cauliflower, and leeks. 

Let's Cook!

This may become your go-to when you need to use up leftovers. That is what we do and never notice that the frittata contains leftovers. It is a new dish in our eyes. And the tasty side options we listed above help to make the meal stand on its own.

We hope you give this Sausage and Potato Frittata Recipe a try or use it as a template to create something amazing!  When you do, please post a comment of your frittata creation. We love to see all your meal adventures.

Sausage and Potato Frittata Recipe

By Adventures In RV Life, Melissa McElfresh

TIME

Prep:  5 minutes

Cooking: 15 – 20 minutes

MAKES

Serves 2 (3 eggs and mix-ins)

INGREDIENTS

  • 6 eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup cubed cooked potatoes
  • ½ cup cubed cooked sausage (or more, to taste)
  • ½ cup bell pepper, chopped
  • Cooking spray or 1 tablespoon oil
  • ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes, optional
  • 2 ounces of cheese, optional

KITCHEN TOOLS

STEPS

  1. Preheat oven to 350*F
  2. Coat pan with cooking spray or brush with oil
  3. Add to the pan: sausage, potatoes, and bell pepper
  4. If using, add in the red pepper flakes or other seasonings
  5. Warm through on the stovetop 2-3 minutes
  6. Stir in the beaten eggs
  7. Turn off the stove burner
  8. Place pan in the oven on the top rack
  9. Cook 10 – 15 minutes, or until the center is set (not jiggly) 
  10. Let frittata rest 5-minutes, to enable easier serving
  11. Top of cheese of choice and serve
  12. Don’t forget to turn off the oven

TIPS

  • If you do not have an oven-safe pan, you have two options. 1) cook the frittata through on the stovetop 2) skip the stovetop cooking and place the frittata in a 9” pie plate to cook inside the oven. This last option will require a longer cooking time. You will know it is done when the center is set.
  • I have found a pie server makes dishing out of the pan much easier.
  • It is highly recommended to warm any frittata leftover in the oven rather than the microwave. The microwave tends to make the eggs rubbery.
  • The cooking time is enough for the eggs, therefore any mix-ins will need to be cooked first.
  • Any seasoning you will need to do so before the eggs are added for maximum flavor.
  • A frittata is great served at room temperature, making it ideal for a brunch gathering.

In 2012 I was diagnosed with Gastroparesis (stomach paralysis), which made me realize life is too short and not to take simple things for granted. As an avid indoor-girl with allergies, I did not go on hikes of any sort. But, one day my Marine husband, Don, asked if I would go on a 'nature walk' with him. It was on the paved Going To The Sun Road in Glacier National Park. I went and was hooked, eager for our next adventure! The desire to see new places, meet new people, experience new cultures, has aided me to share with you my new adventure.

About Us

We are sharing our adventures to not only document our full-time living in a 5th wheel but to provide others with information.  Our extensive research involved searching for answers to these questions: how to begin this lifestyle, what RV is best to live in full-time and what jobs could we do to support our dream.  However, we did not find a lot of answers out there that pertained to our quest.  Quickly we realized people choose this lifestyle and their RV for many different reasons.  There is no right or wrong answer.  We are here to provide you with another perspective.
