Mexican Frittata with Salsa Fresca

frit-2

I’ve recently partnered up with the NFRA (National Frozen and Refrigerated Foods Association) to make some killer recipes that scale from appetizers all the way to dessert, but I’m kicking it off first with the most important meal of the day.  There is nothing like a hearty breakfast that is loaded with flavor and with the Jimmy Dean Sausage Skillet blend, it made my cooking super clean and super fast.  This 3 Cheese Mexican Frittata with Salsa Fresca was insanely delicious and had very little prep thanks to the pre cut onions and peppers, and cooked potatoes and sausage.  I literally only had to whisk together some eggs and cream and blend up some veggies.  Oh and I had to heat up some rice and beans, but I just popped those in the mic on 90 seconds.  The cool thing about this dish is once the eggs are gone you have a ton of left overs which can be used in tacos or burritos for lunch or dinner – You’r welcome 🙂
