Pizza Fritatta

I am such a happy girl! My hubby is back after being gone on a movie set for 5 weeks. He has actually been home for 1 week today. It is true that absence makes the heart grow fonder. We have had a nice week spending time reconnecting. I hope we will not have to be away from each other for that long for again!

Here is another breakfast recipe for you. It was my first attempt at a Fritatta and I thought it went really well!

Pizza Fritatta
10 eggs
1/2 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
salt and pepper
1/2 pound breakfast sausage
1/2 onion, diced
1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
1/2 cup fresh baby mozzarella balls, drained
1 cup marinara sauce
1 Tbsp chopped fresh basil
1/2 Tbsp chopped fresh chives
 Preheat oven to 500. 
Crumble and cook sausage in a cast iron skillet. Remove sausage and set aside.

 Grate parmesan cheese.
 Whisk together eggs, parmesan cheese and 1/4 tsp salt and pepper.
 Add diced onion to the cast iron skillet and cook for a few minutes until tender. Add cherry tomatoes and sausage to pan and turn off heat.
 Evenly pour egg mixture into pan.
 Add marinara sauce to the middle of the pan.
 Use a spoon to swirl the sauce around the pan (do not mix it in, just make large swirls).
 Top with mozzarella balls. Bake for about 20 minutes or until eggs set.
 Remove from oven and top with fresh chopped herbs.
