Frankfurter Friday- Frankfurter Fritatta

I would not generally associate James Beard with frankfurters. It turns out though that in his book How to Eat Better for Less Money he provides quite a few frankfurter recipes. This fritatta recipe seems like it would be tasty and a budget pleaser:

Frankfurter Fritatta

6 tablespoons butter
1 medium onion , chopped fine
4 to 5 frankfurters, cut in shreds
6 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup chopped parsley
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon Tabasco sauce
Melt the butter in a skillet and cook the onion and green pepper until the onions are just golden. Add the frankfurters and cook until delicately browned and cooked through- about 5 minutes. Pour over them the eggs mixed with the cheese, parsley and seasonings and cook until eggs are just set. Put under the broiler for 3 to 4 minutes to brown the top a little. Serve cut into wedges with potato salad or Cole Slaw. Serves 4.
