We recently got a Red Copper™ Square Dance Pan, so this past week we decided to make pancakes to see if they would stick to the pan. We mixed up a batch of Bisquick’s Ultimate Pancakes (using coconut sugar in place of the white sugar that the recipe called for), we put them in the pan, and…. it didn’t stick! I didn’t even spray the pan with cooking spray first, so it impressed me very much.
Of course, a meal of pancakes always feels like it’s missing something important, so Lacy and I decided that we would make a sausage and cheese frittata to go along with our pile of pancakes. We had tried frittatas before, and although last time we did it the task seemed daunting, this time we knew that the egg dish is very easy and fun to make.
This frittata recipe takes about 45 minutes to fix, and it serves 6 to 8 people.
- 1 package (12 oz) ground pork sausage
- 8 large eggs
- 1/3 cup heavy whipping cream (or milk)
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil
- 1 cup cheddar cheese (or a Mexican blend)
Step 1: Prepare. Gather all your ingredients together and preheat the oven to 350°.
Step 2: Cook the sausage in your iron skillet or Red Copper™ pan. The meat is finished cooking when there is no more pink showing. Once finished, drain the grease off the meat and then dish the meat out into a bowl. Wipe out the skillet and set the bowl of sausage aside while you prepare the eggs.
Step 3: Mix the eggs, cream, pepper,and salt. In a medium bowl, whip the eggs with a whisk or a fork. Then mix the cream, the pepper, and the salt into the eggs.
Step 4: Make layers in your skillet. Melt the coconut oil into the bottom of the skillet, then pour half of the egg mixture into the pan. Spoon all of the sausage onto the first layer of egg, and then sprinkle the cheese onto the sausage. Finish by pouring the rest of the eggs over the cheese.
Step 5: Cook the frittata for 23 minutes at 350°. Put the frittata in the oven and let it cook for 20 to 25 minutes. This would be a great time to fix the pancakes on the stove top while the frittata is cooking.
Step 6: Remove from oven, serve and enjoy!
