What is it with people and the need to spoil movies for others? I am not talking about movies that have been out a few weeks. I am talking movies that just came out last night. I am not unrealistic. I know I can’t help hearing things about, say, Game of Thrones, Season 7. It came out last summer. Have all the spoiler filled conversations you want. I’ll just excuse myself until the subject is changed. It isn’t reasonable to think people won’t be taking about it in public after a year. It’s not your problem I haven’t seen it yet after a year.
But if a movie just came out last night, please be respectful that not everyone can get to the midnight showing or any showing for the first week. I have avoided all social media, places were the fan boys will be talking, like comic shops. I just want to enjoy a movie I have been looking forward to for a long time.
I couldn’t avoid having to work next to you and having you look right at me after I asked you to please stop because I haven’t seen the movie yet and having you proceed to tell me everything about it. It isn’t funny. It isn’t cute. It is mean and a total bitch move so just stop. End rant.
Okay, now on to the food portion of this post. One of the last times I posted, I gave you a recipe for Italian Sausage. This post I am giving you a recipe to use Italian sausage. Isn’t that funny how that works?
From The 21 Day Sugar Detox Cookbook
1/2 lb ground pork
1 1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/2 cup tomato sauce
1/2 tsp basil
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp granulated garlic
1 TBS olive oil
1 bell pepper, sliced
5 mushrooms, sliced
3 green onions, sliced
1/2 cup black olives, sliced
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a medium bowl, combine the pork and Italian Sausage Seasoning Blend. Mix the pork and seasonings with your hands until well blended. Heat a large oven safe skillet over medium heat. When hot, add the pork and cook until no longer pink, breaking up the meat as you go. Remove the pork from the skillet and set a side.
In a small bowl, whisk together the eggs, salt, and pepper. In another small bowl, combine the tomato sauce, basil, oregano, garlic, and the remaining salt. Set both bowls aside.
Heat the pan you cooked the pork in over medium heat. Add the oil, when hot add the bell pepper and cook until it starts to soften, about 5 minutes. Add mushrooms and coo until they soften slightly, about 2 minutes. Add the meat back to the pan with most of the green onions and olives. Stir to combine.
Pour the egg mixture into the pan and shake back and forth until the eggs cover the entire bottom of the pan. Let cook for about 5 minutes or until the edges begin to set.
Drizzle the tomato sauce over the eggs. Place the pan in the oven and cook for 8-10 minutes or until the eggs are set. Insert a knife in the center of the fritatta, if it comes out clean it is done.
