Sausage and Potato Frittata

I love cooking eggs for breakfast and dinner.  This frittata recipe is so simple and easy and is perfect for either breakfast or dinner.

It’s also perfect to take to work too.

I did not add cheese to this but you could, even sautéed mushrooms would work well.  I just do not care for mushrooms.

Oh and roasted red bell peppers too!

And bacon!  You could also add crumbled, crisp bacon!!  Oh how delicious that would be!!

Looks like I need to make more frittata!

Hash Browns and Eggs

I love breakfast, and I love having breakfast for dinner too!

I made this for a late morning breakfast one day that I was off from work.  There isn’t much in the way of a recipe, you just fry these potatoes, make a hole and dump in the eggs. Easy!  And delicious!

I always keep a bag of these hash brown potatoes in the freezer mostly because I just dislike peeling and chopping potatoes BUT I use them in soups, quiches, and as a side dish.

Start by just frying your potatoes, add in chopped onions, salt and pepper to taste but I have to tell ya, I love using seasoned salt for fried potatoes.

I had a jar of roasted red peppers in the fridge so I chopped one up and added it to the potatoes just enough to heat before I added the eggs.

Clear away some potatoes and create a hole for each egg you want to add, turn the heat down low enough that nothing burns but yet enough heat to cook the eggs.

Pour in an egg in each hole you create, salt and pepper the egg and cover the pan.

I checked my eggs every few minutes, while the eggs cooked I made my toast.

Within about 8 minutes my eggs and potatoes were done and I was pretty much inhaling them!

Again, there isn’t much of a recipe to follow. This one is easy to just wing it!

Enjoy!
