Enjoy this hearty Cajun Sausage Frittata for breakfast, brunch or dinner. A tasty egg dish that has an edge with cajun spices.
I enjoy breakfast for dinner and the other night I had a pound of sweet italian sausage staring me in the face. I opened the fridge and saw 2 dozen eggs and decided a frittata would be the perfect option.
The Cajun Sausage Frittata is layered and baked to a golden brown. The sausage is browned and added to a 9 x 13 pan. Saute shallots and roasted red pepper and layer that in the pan next, then top with cheese. Mix together the eggs and spices, pour over the layers and it’s ready to bake.
If you are making this for breakfast or brunch serve it with fresh fruit and if you are serving it for dinner add a salad to the menu. Although, this is perfect served on its own.
- 1 lb. sweet Italian sausage
- 2 shallots, chopped
- 1 roasted pepper, chopped
- 2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded
- 10 eggs
- ½ cup sour cream
- ½ cup milk, skim
- 1 tsp. Cajun seasoning
- Heat the oven to 350 degrees.
- Brown the sausage in a pan over medium high heat, break it up as it cooks. Cook for 6-8 minutes, or until it fully cooked. Drain the fast and set the sausage aside.
- In the same pan, add the shallots and roasted pepper and cook for 3 minutes, turn off the heat and remove the pan from the heat.
- Spray a 9 x 13 pan with cooking spray. Layer the sausage on the bottom and add the shallot & pepper mixture on top of the sausage. Sprinkle the cheese over the top.
- In a bowl add the sour cream and milk and whisk to combine. Add the eggs and whisk to combine. Whisk in the Cajun seasoning. Pour the egg mixture over the sausage mixture making sure the egg mixture distributes evenly over the sausage mixture.
- Bake for 35-45 minutes, or until the egg mixture is set.
You can substitute a medium chopped onion for the shallots.
