Sweet Sausage, Sweet Pepper Frittata
Frittatas are fun to make, but this one goes beyond the norm. It’s topped with fresh arugula, red onion and a splash of vinaigrette! Preparing the whole dish with canola oil, which has the least saturated fat of all common culinary oils, helps keep it good for you, too.
Kids will love this hearty, fun dish to start the day. It is high in protein and filled with Mexican flavors.
Eggs simmered in a robust tomato-chorizo sauce and served with a crispy tortilla – is there a better breakfast? (Or heck, lunch or dinner!) Canola oil’s neutral flavor lets the spices and other ingredients take center stage. Plus its high heat tolerance is ideal for frying tortillas.
