Nutritional Facts

One serving (3 frittatas with 3 tablespoons salsa)) equals 283 calories, 11 g fat (4 g saturated fat), 183 mg cholesterol, 954 mg sodium, 28 g carbohydrate, 2 g fiber, 19 g protein. Diabetic Exchanges: 2 lean meat, 1-1/2 starch, 1 fat.

Directions

  1. In a nonstick skillet, cook sausage over medium heat until no longer pink. Remove with a slotted spoon to paper towels. Discard drippings. In the same pan, saute potatoes, onion and garlic in oil until potatoes are golden brown, about 5 minutes. Add water, seasonings and sausage; cook and stir over medium heat until the water has evaporated, about 1 minute.

Bake at 350° for 20-25 minutes or until a knife comes out clean. Carefully run a knife around the edge of cups to loosen frittatas. Serve with salsa. Yield: 4 servings.

These were delicious and perfect portions! I served them with bourbon glazed ham (also in TOH) and they were a hit.
