Have I mentioned that I puffy heart cast iron skillets? My cast iron skillet is quickly becoming my go to cooking skillet. I’m sorry, stainless steel. I’ve found another one to love. We’re going to have to part ways. I hope you understand.

My love affair with cast iron started a couple years ago after I made this Cast Iron Buttermilk Corn Bread. Best cornbread ever, yo. After that, I became a little obsessed. I made this Cajun Shrimp and Quinoa Casserole that will make you shout from rooftops. Can’t forget dessert. I also made this healthy Blueberry Peach Coconut Crisp that won’t make you hate yourself for eating it.

Ain’t nothin’ a cast iron skillet can’t do.

You’re only going to need a few ingredients to make this frittata. Eggs. Potatoes. Chicken Sausage. Onions. And some patience. Patience hungry belly, patience. You can always do what I do while waiting for food to bake – wash the dishes. It’s by far my favorite thing to do so I’m just as happy as a peach while I’m waiting to stuff my face. Can you sense the sarcasm there?

    Hi!!

    I have never paired red onion with eggs before! Only white onions, but I’m obviously more of a gardener than a cook. You’ve inspired me to try something new =) And for a super picky eater like me, that’s a tough thing to do!!

      Awesome! I’m so glad you are going to give red onions a try! Sweet onions are usually my go to onions but I love to change it up sometimes and use the red onions. Thank you so much for stopping by, Laura!
