Sausage & Pepper Frittata

This sausage & pepper frittata is an ideal way to re-purpose leftovers.  A good frittata is great for breakfast, lunch, or even a snack.  It can be served hot, warm, or even room temperature.  The frittata is similar to a quiche, just without the pastry crust.  The possibilities are almost endless, and a great way to bring new life to almost all leftovers.  All you need to master the frittata is a quality, non stick saute pan and some eggs.  We like to use chop sticks to create the perfect light fluffy curds and texture. Enjoy!  

Sausage & Pepper Frittata

  • Level: Intermediate Serves 2-4 people
  • Prep Time: 2 Minutes
  • Cook Time: 8-12 Minutes


  • 1 - 1 ½ cups leftover sausage & peppers
  • 4 large organic eggs
  • 2 drops YL Black Pepper essential oil
  • 1 tsp organic olive oil
  • Cracked Black Pepper, grated Parmesan cheese, chopped chives or Italian parsley


  1. Preheat a small or medium non stick saute pan over medium heat.

  2. Add 1 tsp olive oil, add sausage and peppers and warm for 1-2 minutes.

  3. Beat eggs thoroughly, add Black Pepper essential oil.

  4. Pour eggs into pan, on top of sausage and pepper mix. Stir gently in a figure eight pattern for 20-30 seconds to form curds and create a light fluffy texture.

  5. Lower heat to medium low, continue cooking until the bottom is set, and just slightly browned.

  6. Put a plate over the top of the pan, and flip frittata onto the plate, then back to the pan to finish cooking the top side. You can also put the pan under the broiler to finish the cooking, this can be tricky and may take some practice.

  7. Finish with cracked black pepper, freshly grated parmesan cheese and chopped chives or Italian parsley. Cut into wedges, serve & enjoy.


Use a good quality non stick saute pan, and chop sticks or a rubber spatula to create the perfect texture. Medium/low heat is best, so be patient and use your eyes, ears, and nose for the best results. Remember when cooking eggs if they are completely cooking in the pan, they will be over cooked on the plate.
