Frittata with Italian Sausage and Cannelli Beans

Frittata with Italian Sausage and Cannelli Beans

I made my first frittata a few months ago and I have been enjoying them since. They are pretty versatile. You can put in whatever you want. During the summer the frittatas that I was making were lighter and often contained green vegetables. Now that it is getting cooler I have been making them a bit more substantial. This time I made the frittata with Italian sausage and cannelli beans. It was a pretty hearty frittata. The Italian sausage added a lot of flavour.

1 teaspoon olive oil
1/2 onion (chopped)
2 cloves garlic (chopped)
1 link Italian sausage (casing removed and crumbled)
1/2 cup cannelli beans (from can, drained and rinsed)
6 eggs
1/4 cup heavy cream (optional)
1/4 cup cheddar cheese (grated)
salt and pepper to taste
1/4 cup cheddar cheese (grated)

1. Preheat broiler.
2. Heat oil in an oven proof pan.
3. Add the onions and saute until tender.
4. Add the garlic and saute until fragrant.
5. Add the sausage and brown.
6. Add the canelli beans.
7. Mix the eggs, cream (if using), cheddar cheese, salt and pepper.
8. Add egg mixture to the pan and cook until the eggs are almost set. (About 2 minutes.)
9. Sprinkle the remaining cheese on top.
10. Place the pan under the broiler and cook until the cheese is melted and golden brown.

I've never put beans into a frittata - but only because I never thought of it! It has to be good!

I think the beans would add a nice touch to this. I have never had beans in a frittata, but I had beans in a pasta dish not long ago and was surprised about how much I liked it!
