Susan has been a friend of mine for many, many years and a great cook, too! She drops by from time to time to share recipes here. So, here is her version of a Turkey Sausage And Veggie Fritatta:
frit·ta·ta (fr-tät, frt-tät)
An open-faced omelet with other ingredients, such as cheese or vegetables, mixed into the eggs rather than used as a filling.
[Italian, from fritto, past participle of friggere, to fry; see frit.]

This frittata I made was so full of ingredients that it fell apart when I was taking it out of the pan. So, I shaped it on my plate like an omelet. A girl has to have attractive food, you know! Since I have been in Italy, I like the Italian word, so mine is still being called a frittata, though it appears to be more like an omelet. This frittata/omelet recipe is a perfect breakfast and quite spicy.
- 1 small zucchini
- 1 slice of a large onion, chopped
- 15 grape tomatoes
- 1/4 green bell pepper, chopped
- A handful of spinach leaves

- 2 big squirts of Sriracha Chile Sauce
- Salt, Pepper and Tony Chacheres….to taste
- Chop veggies. Sauté the bell pepper, onion, tomatoes and zucchini in the oil. Once tender, add the, sausage, garlic and spinach. Stir until the spinach is completely wilted and the sausage is heated through.
- Whip the eggs and Sriracha Chile Sauce in another bowl and pour over the veggies. Sprinkle the salt, pepper and Tony C’s on top.
- Cover and let cook on low for about 10 minutes, or until the eggs are almost completely cooked. Top with dots of cheese.

Hi, my name is Susan and Permanent Posies (Creative Chaos) is my blog and my subject matter is…well, that depends on the day and the mood. But, for the most part, I love cooking, watching the Food Network, reading cookbooks and, of course, eating. I am also an artist and spend time each week in my studio (bedroom) oil painting. I am a mother of four and a grandmother to 5 and that, along with my husband and 2 dogs, take up my most of my time. I am a side-tracked Home Executive and I had the privilege of being a stay –at-home mom so, you might say that my passion is the home and making a haven for those I love. I am quite skilled at shopping 🙂 and finding a bargain just makes my day.
