Vegetable sausage is easier to crumble if you microwave it at HIGH for 15 seconds.
1 green bell pepper, chopped
1 (8-ounce) package presliced mushrooms
4 (1.3-ounce) frozen vegetable protein sausage patties, thawed and crumbled
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 cup egg substitute
1/4 cup fat-free half-and-half
1/2 cup (2 ounces) shredded reduced-fat sharp Cheddar cheese
How to Make It
Place a 12-inch ovenproof nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add chopped bell pepper and mushrooms; sauté 3 minutes. Add sausage, salt, and pepper; reduce heat to medium-low, and cook 1 minute.
Combine egg substitute and half-and-half; carefully pour over sausage mixture. Cover and cook 6 minutes. (Frittata will be slightly moist on top.) Sprinkle with cheese.
Broil 1 to 2 minutes or until cheese melts. Cut into 8 wedges.

This recipe is basically an omelette in a different form. Needs spices, like onion, chives, oregano maybe. Strangely, I added two jalapenos because my husband and I like heat, but we could not taste them - no heat. I think the dairy may have neutralized the jalopenos.
