Breakfast meets dinner in this marinara- and mozzarella-topped Italian sausage and pepper frittata affogato. Fittingly, the Italian word “affogato” means drowned, which explains the marinara topping. It lends this dish a vibe somewhere between a breakfast frittata and pizza, meaning it’s enjoyable for pretty much any meal of the day. Follow it up with an affogato—the Italian dessert featuring gelato doused in espresso.

Once you’ve gotten the hang of this version, try any number of variations. Top it with dollops of pesto and ricotta instead of mozzarella, or swap in mushrooms instead of sausage for a vegetarian version.

  1. Preheat broiler to high. In a medium bowl, whisk eggs, basil, milk, salt, and pepper.
  2. In a 10″ ovenproof nonstick skillet over medium-high, heat oil. Add bell pepper and onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until just tender, about 3 minutes. Push vegetables to one side of skillet and add sausage to the other side. Using a wooden spoon, break up sausage into small bits, then stir to combine with vegetables and cook, stirring occasionally, until sausage is golden brown and cooked through and vegetables are tender, 4 to 6 minutes.
  3. Pour egg mixture into skillet with sausage and vegetables. Cook, slowly stirring with a spatula and scraping bottom and sides of skillet to form large curds, until eggs are almost set, 2 to 3 minutes. Spread into an even layer.
  4. Transfer skillet to oven and broil until golden in spots and puffed, about 3 minutes. Remove from oven. Spread marinara over and sprinkle with mozzarella. Continue to broil until sauce is warm and cheese is melted and bubbly, 3 to 5 minutes more. Let cool about 5 minutes before serving. Sprinkle with basil.
