Who Grew My Breakfast?

Fresh Vegetable Frittata


Ever wondered how many farmers it takes to help you make the most important meal of the day? As the leading industry in Georgia, agriculture is all around you – especially when you and your family break bread around the table. Whenever you nibble on a slice of jellied toast or nab a fork full of eggs, remember that a farmer made this meal possible.

Fresh Vegetable Frittata


2 tablespoons olive oil

2 tomatoes

1/2 lb. whole hog sausage

8 ounces shiitake mushrooms, thinly sliced

2 green bell peppers

12 large eggs

1/2 cup sour cream

2 tablespoons coarsely chopped flat-leaf parsley

salt and pepper, to taste


Preheat oven to 350-degrees. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a 10-inch nonstick ovenproof skillet over medium heat. Add green peppers stirring often, until softened, for about 5 minutes. Add mushrooms and cook, stirring often, until softened, for about 8-10 minutes. In another pan, brown sausage and drain any excess fat. Set cooked sausage aside.

Meanwhile, whisk eggs, sour cream, and parsley in a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.

Increase the heat to medium-high and add remaining 1 tablespoon oil as well as sausage, to the skillet. Pour the egg mixture over the green peppers, mushrooms and sausage, moving the pan to evenly distribute mixture. Cook the frittata, without stirring, until its edges begin to set, for about 5 minutes.

Place frittata in the oven and bake until golden brown and center is set, for 25-30 minutes. Garnish with parsley.
