Sunday, October 18th, 2009

This is one of my favorite recipes.  It is both easy to make and quick to cook.

Ingredients:

2 tablespoons of olive oil

1/3 cup yellow onion, chopped fine

1/3 cup peppers, chopped

1 clove garlic, minced

2/3 cup Chirzo sausage, diced

5 large eggs

2/3 cup Monterey Jack cheese

1 tablespoon chopped scallions or chives

coarse salt and fresh ground pepper

salsa or sour cream to garnish

Preparation:

In a bowl, whisk together the eggs, Chorizo 1/3 cup of cheese and the scallions. Season with salt and pepper

In a large overproof skillet, heat oil over medium heat

Add onion, peppers and garlic.  Cook until onions are translucent.

Add egg mixture and cook without stirring about 8 minutes or until the bottom and edges are set but the center is still soft.

Sprinkle remaining cheese on top of the frittata.

Broil until the cheese is bubbling, about one minute.

Remove from broiler and let set about five minutes.

Transfer to a cutting board or plate and cut into wedges

Serve with salsa or sour cream
