Mother's Day Brunch: Munster & Smoked Sausage Frittata

Looking for a new family favorite that won't keep you in the kitchen for more than 5-10 minutes of prep time? Try a frittata. Easy, classic, perfect to tailor to your families tastebuds, this go-to is a big time saver and it doesn't imvolve too much prep time or fancy ingredients. My rule of thumb for a frittata: 1 cheese, 1 meat/veggie, 1 topping. If you can't think of a great topping, just add a little grated cheese on top - that makes anything look fancy!

1 T. canola oil ($.05)
6 whole eggs ($.38)
4 egg whites ($.38)
1/4 C. sour cream ($.10)
1/4 C. shredded Munster cheese ($.20)
1 link of smoked sausage, chopped small ($.15)
salt and pepper ($.05)

Heat oven to 350. Coat a pie plate with oil.

In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, egg whites, sour cream, and salt and pepper. Add smoked sausage to bottom of pie plate, pour egg mixture over the top, and sprinkle with cheese.

Bake for 25-35 minutes, or until center is just set and edges are lightly golden brown. Loosen from sides of pan, cut into wedges and serve. Serve with toast, fresh fruit, and juice.

Yields = 8 wedges
Cost: $1.31 or $.16 per wedge

Optional: Top with caramelized onions or a sprinkling of parsley.

Tip: You can even set this up ahead of time and just pop it in the oven!
