Low Carb Life- Confetti Frittata

Did you know a frittata is an Italian omelet without the folding? That's it. Your only special requirement is an oven proof skillet, and cast iron skillets are available in Wal-mart for cheap.

Confetti Frittata (4 servings)

1/4 lb. bulk pork sausage
1/4 cup diced green pepper
1/4 cup sweet red pepper
1/4 cup sweet red onion
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 tsp. Mrs Dash, original (or substitute your own favorite Italian spices)
8 eggs, beaten

1. In large, oven-proof skillet, brown and crumble sausage over medium heat. When there's enough fat cooked out, add the peppers and onion to the skillet and cook thoroughly. Drain the fat off. Spread the meat and veggies to cover the bottom of the skillet evenly.

2. Beat the cheese and spices into the eggs and pour the mixture over the meat and veggies.

3. Turn the burner to low and cover the skillet. If your skillet doesn't have a cover, you can use aluminum foil or a round cookie sheet weighted down with another skillet. Let the frittata cook until the eggs are mostly set, about 25-30 minutes. Check often until you know how this recipe cooks with your skillet and stove.

4. When all but the top of the frittata is set, slide the whole skillet under the broiler for about 5 minutes or until the top is golden. Cut into 4 wedges and serve.
