Sausage & Red Pepper Frittata

I’ll admit I have a mild frittata addiction. I love how easy they are to make and how you can add different ingredients and completely change the flavour. My go-to ingredients have been bacon and onions. I don’t know why it took me so long to think of adding sausage! I mean sausage is a breakfast food right?

This Sausage & Red Pepper Frittata also has fresh marjoram which looks similar to oregano. However I find it has a milder flavour.

In terms of the cheese and sausage, feel free to use whatever you have on hand or whatever your tastebuds prefer. I myself like mild Italian sausage so that’s what I used. I also found a new cheese at our grocery store that I wanted to try. It’s a Goat’s Milk Cheddar & Mozzarella infused with olive oil, garlic, parsley and red and green bell peppers. It worked really well in the frittata and added another element of texture and taste.
