Clean Out The Fridge Frittata

A simple and tasty dish that allows you to use up all those leftovers in your fridge. You can use any combination of vegetables and protein that you have handy.

Adjust oven rack to middle position and heat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a medium bowl, crack eggs and add heavy cream. Beat gently to break up the yolks. Careful not to over beat. Add salt, pepper and mix to combine. Set aside

Prep the veggies and sausage so that they're ready to go. Dice the sausage and peppers. Slice onions, scallions and give the spinach a rough chop. Set aside.

On medium high heat add olive oil and sausage to a well seasoned cast iron skillet or nonstick oven proof pan, cook until brown. Once sausage is brown, add onions, peppers and scallions. Saute until all of your veggies have softened, about 5 minutes, then add spinach.

After the spinach has wilted, spread sauteed vegetables and sausage in an even layer. Sprinkle 3/4 cups of the mozzarella/cheddar cheese combo evenly over the vegetables, reserving 1/4 cup for later.

Reduce the heat to medium low. Then pour egg mixture over the cooked sausage, veggies and cheese. Continue cooking on the stove top over medium low heat until the edges start to set and slightly pull away from the pan, about 5 minutes.

Transfer skillet to preheated 350 degree oven and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until the edges are set and the center is no longer jiggly. Remove from oven and sprinkle the reserved 1/4 cup of cheese evenly over the top. 

Let rest for 5 minutes, then slice and serve.
