I will admit that I really enjoy a great omelette. But they can be very time consuming to create. I also love to find meals that are quick and easy to make, and so when I needed a simple meal this week, I thought about making an omelette, but instead chose to create a great frittata (Italian omelette) recipe instead. Frittatas are much more simple to make and less labor intensive as well. And you can cook them all in one pan! Bonus!
I really love the flavors of Italian food and so using the Italian sausage and oregano and basil gave this frittata a really nice flavor!
This recipe is good for 1-2 people, and I made it in my 8 inch cast-iron skillet. I fix it for a tasty dinner and enjoy the leftovers the next day for lunch! I now absolutely love making frittatas! They are going to be one of my new go to meals when I need something quick and easy to fix for dinner!
