The holiday season is a joyful time spent making memories with those we love most. During this season, many of us find ourselves happily hosting out-of-town family and friends. Amid holiday house guests, keeping stress at a minimum is key. One way to reduce your to-do list, is preparing breakfast in advance. This colorful breakfast frittata is the perfect healthy make-ahead breakfast. Bake this the day before your loved ones arrive. When breakfast rolls around, all you and your guests have to do is reheat a slice, grab a cup of coffee, relax, and allow the merrymaking to commence!
First, Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. and lightly coat a 9-inch baking dish with butter. Place potatoes and 1/4 cup water in a microwave-safe bowl. Cover and place into microwave for 4-5 minutes, or until tender; drain well and set aside.
Then, 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.
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.
