Mini Sausage Frittatas {made with a Whoopie Pie Pan}

Have you heard about Whoopie Pie Pans? I wasn't exactly sold on them to begin with, but now that I have one - I am in love! Within a day of receiving my Sweet Creations {from Good Cook} Nonstick Whoopie Pie Pan I whipped up these Mini Sausage Frittatas and some Brownie Ice Cream Sandwiches. The Whoopie Pie pan made both of these dishes a breeze, and I am all about an easy dish!

This recipe was inpsired by my husband, the meat lover. I grabbed a pound of sausage {a new find, Jimmy Dean Country Mild!} with my trusty new Whoopie Pan and got to work.

I did my best to divide the sausage over the 12 Whoopie Pie cavities and then popped them in the oven at 400 degrees for 10 minutes.

While the sausage patties were baking I mixed together eggs, green bell peppers, onions, cheese, salt and pepper. After taking the sausage patties out of the oven, I poured {easily by using a measuring cup with spout} the egg mixture evenly over the top of them. Then back in the oven for about another 6 minutes. {halfway through I added additional shredded cheese to the tops of 6}

Not only did they turn out beautiful, they easily popped out of the pan without any non-stick spray.

The possibilities are endless on ingredient combinations, I can't wait to play around with this basic recipe.

Mini Sausage Frittatas {made with a Whoopie Pie Pan}
yields 12
1 lb ground sausage {I used Jimmy Dean Country Mild}
4 eggs
¼ cup green bell pepper, diced
2 tablespoons onion, diced
¼ cup cheese, grated
¼ teaspoon ground black pepper {I really like pepper, so feel free to cut back}
⅛ teaspoon salt
1. Heat oven to 400
2. Divide ground sausage over 12 Whoopie Pie Pan cavities. Bake for 10 minutes.
3. Mix together eggs, green bell pepper, onion, cheese, salt and pepper.
4. Immediately after removing sausage patties from oven, pour egg mixture over the top of them. Return to oven for about 6 minutes or until eggs are done to your likeness.
5. Remove from oven and serve immediately.

I served the Mini Sausage Frittatas with Thomas Mini Bagels and they were a hit with adults and kiddos alike. The frittatas are good enough on their own and I love how personal-sized they are, especially for the kiddos.

The Whoopie Pie Pan I have is a Sweet Creations {from Good Cook} Nonstick Whoopie Pie Pan with 12 wells. It makes 12 perfectly sized Whoopie Pie pieces for 6 uniform Whoopie Pies. They are regularly $14.99 but on sale right now {11/15/2013} for $9.74. The whole line of Sweet Creations is pretty amazing, I totally recommend checking it out if you like baking. They have a variety of baking pans, decorating supplies, seasonal baking products and more - really useful & adorable products.
