Idaho Potato Sausage Frittata Recipe


This Potato Sausage Frittata is my go-to, one pan meal that is a crowd-pleaser every time.

Hakuna Matata, or “No Worries,” is a Swahili phrase that many became familiar with from The Lion King movie. Hakuna Frittata is the “anything goes” attitude to embrace when making frittatas.

Of course, my “anything goes” Frittata has got to have Famous Idaho Potatoes… the rest, I’m pretty willing to compromise. Ham instead of the sausage? Sure. Ricotta instead of the Extra Sharp Cheddar? You got it.
