Southwest Frittata Recipe @pinch

Typically a frittata not a formal dish and thrown together with leftovers. Frittatas have become very popular in recent years with cooks coming up with creative combinations. This Southwest frittata is a great example of this. A hash of spicy sausage, peppers, onions, and potatoes elevates this to a more formal dish. Pepper jack sprinkled on top adds just the right amount of cheesiness. Serve with sour cream and a bit of pico de gallo at your next brunch for a dish everyone will be talking about. It is an outstanding breakfast for dinner recipe too. Italian meets the Southwest in this frittata. This has become a family favorite and my most requested breakfast dish to make. Don't leave out the sour cream have I know it sounds strange, but trust me have It is delicious and helps cool down the spiciness.
