What’s for (Christmas) Breakfast – Frittata

I think this used to be called a “wifesaver” back in the day.  I originally got the recipe from Kraft Canada but it looks like they’ve changed it since I found it a few years ago.  I’ve made a few modifications based on our favourite foods, but you can use whatever veggies and meat you want.  It’s a tradition on Christmas morning in our household – I love it because I put it together the night before, then throw it in the oven in the morning and it bakes up while we open presents.



  • 4 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 cups frozen hash browns
  • 1 cup breakfast sausage, cooked and chopped
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 medium red pepper, chopped
  • 1 cup shredded cheese (we use whatever blend we have in the fridge)


  1. Combine the eggs, mayo and milk in a greased 8×8 baking dish.
  2. Add hash browns, sausage, onion and peppers; mix until well blended.
  3. Sprinkle cheese on top.
  4. Bake at 400° for 35 to 40 minutes or until the centre is set.
  5. Let rest for 5 minutes, then serve.

Merry Christmas from our home to yours!

    I made this Christmas Eve for breakfast for my mother and I the next morning… using ham in place of sausage and omitting the pepper becuase I didn’t have one, and it was DELICIOUS! We heated leftovers in the toaster oven this morning and it was so good day #2!
