Stuffing Frittata

I saw something similar to this on the Quick Fix with Robin Miller show today on the Food Network and I'm gonna give it a try tomorrow. Yet another great way to use up your leftovers! I'm going to adapt the recipe a bit, as her recipe calls for a broiler, and I'd rather just use my oven.

Stuffing Frittata

Cooking spray

2 cups leftover stuffing
1 cup of Jimmy Dean pork breakfast sausage (because our stuffing doesn't have any meat)
1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese
8 large eggs
3/4 cup milk
1/4 teaspoon ground fresh nutmeg
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan or Italian blend cheese
Salt and pepper
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley leaves

Preheat oven to 400
Coat an ovenproof nonstick skillet with cooking spray.
Place over medium heat (on stovetop).
Brown pork sausage, drain, and return to skillet.
Add in stuffing to pork sausage and mix.
Warm through mixture in skillet.
Sprinkle grated cheddar cheese over top.

In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, 1 tablespoon of parsley (save the rest for later), and nutmeg. Add salt and pepper to taste. It really depends on how much seasoning you have in your stuffing.

Pour egg mixture over stuffing and cheese to cover stuffing. Sprinkle Parmesan over top.

Carefully transfer to preheated oven.

Bake until the eggs are set and the sides have puffed up a little bit and cheese is golden, about 15 to 20 minutes.

Cool before cutting.

Sprinkle with remaining fresh parsley.
