Meijer Bargain recipe of the week: Smoked Sausage Fritatta

Bargain Meal of the Week

Sometimes when I have just had enough of cooking, I flip it and serve breakfast. I love this recipe because it combines a heartier meat and tons of protein. I hope it shakes things up at your house!

I will not expense spices/oils since most of us have them on hand.

Smoked Sausage Fritatta

1 1/2 cups smoked sausage, sliced (On sale $1.79) $1.79
1/4 cup diced onion (3 lb bag on sale $1.50) $.15
6 eggs $.48
1/2 cup milk (On sale gallon $1.59) $.13
1/4 cup sour cream (On sale Daisy $1.39)$.17
salt and pepper to taste
1 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese, divided $1.12

Preheat an oven to 400 degrees

Cook the sausage and onion in an oven-proof skillet over medium heat until the sausage has browned, about 10 minutes. Drain excess grease from the skillet. Whisk together the eggs, milk, sour cream, salt, and pepper. Sprinkle the sausage with 1 cup of the Cheddar cheese, then pour the egg mixture overtop.

Bake in the preheated oven until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean, about 18 minutes. Sprinkle with the remaining Cheddar cheese, and return to the oven until the cheese has melted. Cut into wedges to serve.
