Sausage & Potato Frittata

There are lots of things that I miss about living in Portland. One of them is the Flying Elephants Deli. Elephants has a number of my favorite things to eat when I’m visiting P-Town, one of which is a scrumptious potato, sausage frittata. And, let me just say that I LOVE this frittata. So, I set out to find/create a recipe that matches it as closely as possible, and this is what I came up with!  I have to admit, it does taste pretty darned close to the original, and that’s more then enough for me!

And now on with the show….

Breakfast sausage

3/4 cup cheddar cheese, shredded

3/4 cup swiss cheese, shredded

2 cups shredded potatoes

1/4 cup heavy cream

6 eggs, beaten

2 green onions, chopped

2 tsp chives, chopped

salt & pepper

  • Cook the sausage until done.
  • In the meantime, combine the beaten eggs, both cheeses, salt & pepper, and cream.
  • Add potatoes, onions, and chives to sausage.
  • Pour the egg mixture over sausage mixture. Cook stirring occasionally until egg is mostly cooked.
  • Remove from heat and pour into an oven safe glass baking dish.
  • Bake at 400 for 15 minutes until firm, or until a knife inserted in the center comes out mostly clean.
