Kitchen Sink Frittata

Sounds delish doesn't it?  

Maybe not, but hopefully you can appreciate the sentiment.  I think it looks better than it sounds.

One of my favorite things to do is taking what I have on hand and making something simple and delicious out of it.

Hmm, sounds like something Italians have been doing for centuries.  It is the staple of the Italian cook's culture.

As the name suggests, the recipe should and will vary based on what you have in the fridge to be used up.  

Here is how I made mine.
Kitchen Sink Frittata

Remove sausage from casing, break off in pieces and brown in pan, set aside
Saute some chopped onion in some olive oil over medium heat in a non-stick oven safe pan
When translucent throw in some minced garlic along with salt and pepper
Add chopped plum tomato, chopped olives, and ripped red swiss chard
Slightly whip 5-6 eggs in a bowl
Pour over the veggies when they are soft
Add the sausage
Let mixture set
When almost set, sprinkle with freshly grated parmesan and chopped parsley
Place in the oven at 350 degrees to set and brown the top

It should look like this when done

**Cooks note:  You may notice that the sausage is arranged on only half of the frittata.  This is so the vegetarian in the house can also enjoy it!

Carefully loosen and cut into pie slices using a plastic knife

Serve with some rosemary ciabatta and a green salad for a perfect dinner or brunch.  Cold leftovers also make a delicious breakfast treat.

    I love this frittata! It looks delicious! My favorite frittata has potatoes, onions and zucchini in it. Throw in some fresh herbs, salt and pepper and you’re all set!
