Review This Recipe
Although this recipe was a little more time consuming than I had expected, it was very good and even better the next day. May be just as well with green peppers as it is with red peppers, this recipe really does not bring out the sweet flavor of the red.
This was a very tasty treat. I was surprised at how easy it was. My husband is a picky eater and he loved this dish. It is a perfect recipe if you want to "spice" up that same old same old sausage dish. Even kids will enjoy it.
Cheddar Sausage Frittata
This is such a delicious surprise for Sunday brunch. My family had never heard of a "Frittata". They learned quickly that it was one of their forever favorites. My son took the recipe so he could impress his bride with a new breakfast dish and with his cooking ability. I get request over and over to fix this dish and it is just as good the next day when you heat a slice in the microwave. Thank you "Stouffers" for this wonderful recipe that has become a keeper and thank you for all the wonderful frozen foods we have enjoyed for a long time. I always know if its Stouffers it will be good.
