this isn't the latest gimmick from your local red-roof pizza place. This is an idea I had while considering options for our 'breakfast for dinner' night.
It starts as any standard fritatta made with sausage and veggies, then topped with marinara and cheeeeeese!!!
2 Large eggs
4 Egg whites
3 oz. Sausage, Pepperoni, or other meat (I used smoked venison brat)
½ c. Red bell pepper, cut into strips
¼ c. Onion, chopped
½ c. Mushrooms, sliced
½ c. tomato puree or marinara
1 oz. shredded mozzarella
Pinch of red pepper flake (optional)
1 tsp. Olive oil
Salt/Pepper to taste
Turn on oven broiler.
Heat a cast iron skillet over medium/high heat and add olive oil and meat. After 2-3 mins add veggies, salt and pepper (and optional pepper flake); stir to combine. While the meat and veg cook whisk eggs and whites together thoroughly and pour into pan. Let the eggs begin to set without stirring them or moving the pan. After 2 minutes carefully slide eggs under broiler; cook 3-4 mins. Remove from oven and top with marinara and cheese, place back under broiler to melt the cheese.
Let the frizzatta rest a few minutes before slicing and serving.
