Filled with sausage and bell peppers, this frittata is a savory dish that works well any time of day. Fruit salad is a great fresh and naturally sweet dish to serve on the side. This meal last appeared in 2017 when we suggested it as a possible Christmas brunch. It would work great again at that meal if you are celebrating the holiday this weekend.
