Curried Italian Sausage Frittata

curried italian sausage frittata breakfast potatoes

This frittata is a hearty blend of spicy Italian sausage, onions, peppers, garlic and curry powder with melted white cheddar, which goes especially well with our Indian-spiced breakfast potatoes and some sriracha on the side.


  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/2 tsp curry powder
  • 1/4 lbs. ground spicy italian sausage
  • 1/2 small onion, 1-inch diced
  • 1/2 green bell pepper, 1-inch diced
  • 12 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup shredded white cheddar cheese
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F. 
  2. Beat eggs and curry powder in a medium bowl. Add a pinch of salt and season with some freshly ground pepper. Stir and set aside. 
  3. On medium heat, add 1 tablespoon olive oil to pan. Add garlic and sauté until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add onions and peppers and continue to sauté for about 3 minutes. 
  4. With a wooden spoon, slide vegetables to one side of pan and add sausage.  Turn heat up to medium-high and break sausage up with spoon. The sausage will crumble from moisture from vegetables. Once sausage is crumbled, stir into the vegetables. If the vegetables start to dry out, add a tablespoon of water to deglaze the pan and help caramelize the onions. Continue to sauté until sausage is browned and the vegetables are soft. The skin of the peppers should have a bit of blistering on them.
  5. Add the chopped tomatoes and sauté for 1 minute to remove excess moisture.  Remove from heat and place mixture in a bowl. 
  6. Add a tablespoon of olive oil to the pan and place over medium heat. Add filling mixture back to pan and spread out evenly. 
  7. Pour eggs over the filling and gently push the filling around with a spatula so the bottom is just set and the top is coated with raw egg. 
  8. Move the pan to the oven and bake for 5 minutes or until top is set.
  9. Remove from oven and sprinkle cheese over center of the pan. Turn oven broiler to high and place pan back in oven until cheese has fully melted, about 1 minute.
  10. Slide the frittata onto a plate and garnish with sliced avocado and enjoy!
