Prep Time: 15 minutes | Cooking Time: 25 minutes | Total Time: 40 minutes


8 ounces sausage
1/2 onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 cup ricotta cheese
1/2 cup heavy cream
4 eggs
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 cup salsa
1 cup Cheddar cheese, shredded
Salt to taste


Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Lightly grease a 9-inch oven-safe skillet or baking dish.

In a large skillet, cook the sausage over medium heat until it is browned and cooked through. Use a wooden spoon to break it up into small crumbles.

Add the chopped onion and minced garlic to the skillet with the sausage. Sauté until the onions become translucent and fragrant, about 3-4 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.

In a mixing bowl, whisk together the ricotta cheese, heavy cream, eggs, cayenne pepper, and a pinch of salt until well combined.

Pour the egg mixture over the cooked sausage and onions in the skillet. Gently stir to evenly distribute the ingredients.

Place the skillet in the preheated oven and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the frittata is set and lightly golden on top.

Remove the skillet from the oven and sprinkle the shredded Cheddar cheese evenly over the frittata. Return it to the oven for an additional 2-3 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.

Once cooked, remove the frittata from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes. Slice it into wedges and serve with a dollop of salsa on top.
