Breakfast Frittata

This dish is a perfect Sunday morning breakfast feast.  Pretty simple to make, and even better to eat.  We made this on Easter morning, shaped it like an egg, and loved every minute of it.
10 Eggs
1 lb breakfast sausage
1/2 yellow onion diced
1 green bell pepper diced
1 lb sharp cheddar cheese (we used reduced fat to help out with some of the calories)
2 tbsp milk
salt and pepper

In large, deep oven safe pan, like a dutch oven, brown the sausage over medium heat.  Add the onion and pepper once sausage is cooked. Saute t the veggies with the sausage for 3-5 minutes or until translucent.  Meanwhile, mix the eggs, milk, salt and pepper in a large bowl.  Beat the eggs well for 2-3 minutes.  (Hint: Most people don't beat their eggs enough.  The more you beat them, the lighter and fluffier they will be.)  Pour the egg mixture over the sausage and vegetables.  Top with the cheese, and place a lid on the dish.  Put in a 350 degree oven. for 15-20 minutes or until a knife comes out clean when stuck in the center.

With a thin spatula, cut the eggs lose from the pan, and slide onto a serving plate.  Serve in squares, and top with your favorite salsa or hot sauce.  Simple and satisfying.
