🇬🇷 Greek Breakfast Frittata 🐑

Screen Shot 2017-11-25 at 9.56.55 AMWe often have house guests or people coming over for brunch on weekends, so an easy-to-make and forgiving dish is our world 🌎 famous Greek 🇬🇷 frittata.  It’s almost like a greek salad baked with eggs.  The frittata served with thickly-sliced, roasted butcher shop bacon and crusty toasted bread with Irish salted butter is a big hit.

  • 1 pound spice lamb sausage meat, no casings
