" I truly think it is best to be a robin lightly dressed concocting soup inside my nest" ~Maurice Sendak

It's Better the Second Time Around

After a dinner party last night I found myself with leftover potatoes and Moroccan Merguez Lamb Sausages.
So I put them to good use this morning. I created a variation of a wonderful brunch or light supper dish , Frittata. It was a total hit with my family.
This is a great way to clean out the fridge and crisper of leftovers . It takes minutes to prepare but tastes like you have been cooking for hours.
The variations are endless..instead of sausages you can use bacon, ham, Italian sausages, Genoa salami, diced roast beef, diced bell peppers, onions, ..you get the gist....be creative. Go wild!

Moroccan Style Frittata

  • 2 cups of sliced cold cooked potatoes
  • 8 sliced Merguez Lamb Sausages
  • 6 sliced grape or cherry tomatoes
  • 1/2 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp parsley
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 5 eggs
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 cup shredded cheese (any type you prefer)
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • Olive oil
Preheat oven to 400 F.
In a bowl whisk eggs and milk together and set aside.
In a large wide deep oven proof skillet heat olive oil and add diced sausages and tomatoes cook until tomatoes are softened. Add sliced potatoes, garlic, spices and cook until potatoes begin to lightly brown .
Pour eggs evenly over the contents of the skillet. Sprinkle shredded cheese on top.
Place in oven and bake until cheese is bubbly and eggs are set. Remove from oven.
Let stand for 3 min. slice and serve with buttered toast.

For a light dinner simply add Greek salad and crusty bread .
