  • 4 tablespoons olive oil divided
  • 1/3 cup red pepper diced
  • 1/3 cup russet potatoes peeled and diced
  • 1/3 cup half of a fully cooked and diced gluten free sweet Italian sausage (I like Niman Ranch)
  • 1/3 cup onion diced
  • 6 eggs
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon parsley
  • 2 tablespoons butter


  • Heat 1 tablespoon of your oil in your oven safe skillet. Stir in diced potatoes coating them with the oil. Cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Transfer to a dish and set aside.
  • Add another tablespoon of oil to your pan. Add sausage, onion, and peppers. Stir to coat with the oil and cook for about 3 minutes, stirring occasionally until the onions are translucent. Transfer to the dish with the potatoes.
  • Whisk eggs until they are foamy and well scrambled. Then stir in the previously sautéed ingredients and seasonings.
  • Now heat the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil plus 2 tablespoons of butter in your skillet and coat the bottom and sides.
  • Pour egg mixture into the hot pan, cover, and cook for 2 minutes.
  • Meanwhile preheat your broiler on low
  • Uncover your skillet and place the oven safe skillet under the broiler about 7 inches from the heat source, until the top is golden brown and fluffy, about 4 minutes.
  • Cut into slices and serve immediately.



  • I used a cast-iron skillet to make this frittata, but I have also used this oven safe skillet.
  • If you're low carb like me, you can leave out the potatoes. It's still delicious.
  • Frittatas pack well so you can bring a few slices on a picnic or bring a slice to work for lunch.
  • Frittatas are also an excellent make-ahead dish! Just refrigerate in an airtight container for up to four days. And heat them up when you want to serve.
  • Frittatas are a great way to use up leftovers. Try this recipe for Italian frittata or let your imagination take over and create your own combination.
