Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Heat the oil in a large saucepan
  3. Add the sausage to the pan - remove bulk sausage from the casings if using sausage links
  4. Cook the sausage, using a wooden spoon to break into small pieces, until it is cooked through and no longer pink
  5. Place the thawed spinach on a clean dish towel
  6. Twist the dish towel to drain as much water as possible from the spinach
  7. Spread the shredded potatoes in a 9x13 pan -I prefer a glass pan like Pyrex, but a metal pan will work too
  8. Add the sausage, spinach and 1 cup of the cheese to the pan and gently mix together
  9. Add the roasted red peppers to the pan (if using). See the recipe for roasted red peppers on the blog if you want to make your own.
  10. Crack the eggs into a bowl or large measuring cup
  11. Add the half & half, milk, salt and pepper to the eggs and beat with a fork until well blended
  12. Pour the egg & milk mixture into the baking dish, mix the ingredients together with a fork and spread the remaining cheese on top
  13. Bake the torta until golden and puffy, about 60 minutes.
  14. Remove from oven and let rest for 15 minutes before serving.
  15. To make the torta ahead, let it cool completely, cover and refrigerate. To reheat, cover with foil and warm in a 325 degree oven for 30-45 minutes.
Recipe Notes
