Mini Frittata Sandwiches 
Difficulty: Beginner  |  Prep Time: 30 Minutes  |  Makes 16 Pieces

  • 2 jalapeño peppers
  • ¼ cup 35% heavy cream
  • 8 Large Eggs
  • Kosher salt and pepper
  • 3 Tbsp canola oil
  • 8 breakfast sausages (about 1 oz each)
  • 1 small yellow onion, diced
  • 1 cup shredded aged Cheddar cheese
  • 16 prepared mini buttermilk biscuits, split
  • 1 large green tomato, quartered lengthwise and thinly sliced

Position oven rack in top third of oven. Preheat oven to broil. Place jalapeños on small baking sheet; broil, turning occasionally, for about 5 minutes or until charred. Transfer to small bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Let stand for 5 minutes; peel skin. Chop jalapeños coarsely into small pieces (remove seeds for less heat); set aside.

Whisk together cream, eggs and pinch of salt and pepper in small bowl.

Heat oil in 10-inch nonstick ovenproof sauté pan set over medium-high heat; cook breakfast sausages for 4 to 6 minutes or until browned, breaking up meat with wooden spoon. Using slotted spoon, transfer sausages to plate; set aside.

Reduce heat to medium; in same sauté pan, cook onion for 4 to 6 minutes or until lightly caramelized. Return jalapeños and sausages to pan, stirring to combine. Pour egg mixture into pan; cook for about 3 minutes or until frittata is almost set but top is still runny. Sprinkle Cheddar over top.

Transfer pan to oven; broil for about 3 minutes or until lightly puffed and cheese is golden brown. Turn off oven; let stand in oven for 5 minutes.

Arrange biscuits on parchment paper–lined baking sheet; place in oven to warm through. Using rubber spatula, loosen frittata from pan and invert onto cutting board; cut into 16 pieces. Sandwich frittata and green tomato slices in biscuits.

For an even meatier version, add a few slices of crisp bacon. Enjoy!
