Fritata with bell peppers and Tirolean sausages

A fritata is basically an omelet with lots of filling, somewhat thicker, that comes from the Italian kitchens. 
There's something similar in the Spanish cuisine, that also contains potato slices, and it's called a tortilla (not the same with the Mexican flatbread) - remember our herbal tortilla de patatas with parsley and fennel?

But enough theory - this is a simple and yummy lunch :)

Ingredients (serves 2):
  • 4 eggs
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • dried basil and marjoram
  • 1 red, 1 green, 1 yellow bell pepper
  • 100 g Tirolean thin sausages
  • 1/2 tablespoon olive oil for frying

Prepare and wash the freshies:

  Chop them up into cubes and place them in a small frying pan where you previously spread the oil:

Next, prepare the sausages. We like the variety from Tirol, but any thin and quality variation will fit:

Slice them into little pieces and add them to the pan:

Lightly beat the eggs in a bowl and season them with salt, pepper and herbs. Turn on the heat underneath the pan, mix the contents well and when you hear sizzling sounds pour the egg mixture on top:

Fry for 3-4 minutes on medium heat, then turn upside down (careful not to break the fritata). Slice it up pizza-style and serve warm. It's ready, dig in! :)


  1. I just made a frittata yesterday with some leftover pasta and broccoli, it was great! This sounds wonderful as well, love all those beautiful peppers.

  2. Yes, they're so colorful :)

    Thanks for dropping by.
