Ingredients
  1. 2 small russet potatoes, diced
  2. 4 large eggs
  3. 1/4 cup milk
  4. 1 teaspoon hot sauce, optional
  5. Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  6. 1 tablespoon olive oil
  7. 3 Italian sausage links, casing removed
  8. 1 red bell pepper, diced
  9. 1 green bell pepper, diced
  10. 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese, divided
  11. 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley leaves
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly coat a 9-inch baking dish with nonstick spray.
  2. Place potatoes and 1/4 cup water in a microwave-safe dish. Cover and place into microwave for 4-5 minutes, or until tender; drain well and set aside.
  3. In a large glass measuring cup or another bowl, whisk together eggs, milk and hot sauce; season with salt and pepper, to taste; set aside.
  4. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add Italian sausage and cook until browned, about 3-5 minutes, making sure to crumble the sausage as it cooks; drain excess fat. Stir in bell peppers and potatoes until tender, about 3-4 minutes.
  5. Remove from heat. Stir in 1/2 cup cheddar cheese until well combined.
  6. Place sausage mixture evenly into the baking dish. Pour egg mixture evenly over the top and sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup cheese.*
  7. Place into oven and bake for 35-40 minutes, or until the eggs are firm.
  8. Serve immediately, garnished with parsley, if desired.
Notes
  1. *This can be covered and placed in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours. When ready to reheat, let the covered casserole sit at room temperature for 1 hour.
