I had some fresh Chorizo sausage that I needed to do something with. I remembered seeing a baked omelet on Ry’s Blog – Sotto Il Monte Vineyards that looked soooooo good and then flipping through an Italian cookbook – Elodia Rigante’s Italian Immigrant Cooking I found another baked omelet (Fritatta).
So I decided a baked omelet would be the perfect way to use what I had on hand. While the sausages were cooking, I put on a pot of oil and fried up some potato slices. I lined a couple of small “casseroles” with parchment paper and then layered in the potatoes and then the sliced sausage and a layer of grated white cheddar. Mixed up the eggs with a little cream, adding chopped chives, seeded and chopped tomatoes and salt and pepper and poured over the sausage and potatoes. Baked in a 375°F for about 15 minutes.
Served with buttered toast. .
