I served mine with potatoes, for a breakfast for dinner feel taste. I've made a few frittatas in my day (literally a few, as in two others) and this was definitely a favorite. The sausage adds a lot of flavor. 

Big fan!

I don't eat meat (yeah, I'm one of THOSE people) but I have to say this looks delicious and I'm always envious of people who get creative in the kitchen, our meals are so routine it's boring!

Kate, I actually have made one with vegetarian sausage before and it's still really good! Definitely recommend it :)
