Last night, my family took a trip to Flavortown and made Guy Fieri’s Chicken Apple Sausage Frittata. I’m a big fan of the Mayor of Flavortown. He is larger than life and seems like a great guy. I’d made this recipe several times before, but I didn’t have a blog then, so this is the first time I get the opportunity to recommend it.
Chicken Apple Sausage Frittata
The reason I make it so much, is that whenever I have Chicken Apple Sausage in the house, I always have the other ingredients in this recipe. Things like bell pepper, smoked paprika and eggs and cheese. I’m not here to give you the recipe, but I’ll provide the link. Don’t click it yet, though, read on. I’ve got a couple of tips that will make this a little easier for you.
Last night, I didn’t have any tortillas so I needed to make my own. Making your own tortillas is really, really simple. Find abuela’s recipe or go online and make some. They’re always better than store bought and your friends and family will be impressed! It’s flour, fat, salt and warm water. If you have a tortilla press it’s even easier. I don’t, so I have to roll mine out on the counter and it makes a huge mess, which is why I usually buy my tortillas.
The most difficult part of this recipe is flipping the frittata in a 10″ skillet. The skillet is full to the top with sausage and peppers and eggs, and I don’t have any kind of spatula big enough to flip it, so I ended up doing a weird kind of scramble thing trying to flip sections at a time. It was a hot mess. A delicious, hot mess.
Tip: Use a non-stick skillet or grease the skillet well so the frittata is easier to flip.
Like a Quesadilla
Putting this frittata together is like making a quesadilla. You lay out the tortilla, spread cheese over it. I used pepperjack, but the recipe calls for cheddar. Then I slid the cooked frittata on top, layered with more cheese and topped with another homemade tortilla. Then you put the whole skillet in the oven until the cheese is melted.
Tip: Use a large pancake spatula
After that, I lay the frittata out on a large, wooden cutting board and sliced it up like a pizza. It was really delicious! I’d recommend you get some kind of large pancake sized spatula to make it a little easier on you, but even if the frittata ends up messy, it’s still ridiculously delicious.
Enjoy, and if you make it, let me know how it turns out!
