Veggie Frittata, Turkey Sausage, Turkey Bacon and Home Fries

Fritattas are a good breakfast to make on a weekend. They're easy to make and you can make a lot of it or a little depending on the number you're serving without doing any extra work. They're also a good way to get some veggies into your diet- I made this one out of veggies and it was delicious. I served it with some home fries and some lean turkey sausage and bacon to complete the meal. We didn't eat again until dinner!

Veggie Frittata:
6 eggs
1 small onion
1 bag spinach
1/2 a red pepper
3/4 cup shredded cheddar jack cheese
salt and pepper to taste

Dice all of the veggies and saute them until they're tender. Remove and set aside. In a large bowl, whisk in the eggs, veggies cheese and salt and pepper and pour into an oven-safe pan sprayed with cooking spray. Cook on low heat until the frittata is almost cooked through. At this point, put it into the oven and cook at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes.

For the Home Fries:
2 large russett potatoes
1 onion
1/3 cup parsley
2 tsp. paprika
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
olive oil- to drizzle over the top
Salt and pepper to taste

Slice the potatoes into rounds ( I used a sharp knife but a mandolin works well too.) Make sure the slices are even. Next dice the onion and mix with the potatoes. Take a foil-lined cookie sheet and spray with cooking spray. Add the potatoes and onion to the pan and season with the paprika, salt and pepper and drizzle with olive oil. Cover with foil and bake for about 20 minutes at 400 degrees. Remove the pan from the oven and take off the foil. The potatoes should be tender now. Add the cheese and parsley and combine well. Allow the potatoes to cook uncovered until they're slightly crisp.
