    This is a great recipe for feeding a bunch of hungry visitors in the morning. I do make some changes however. I omit the potatoes & substitute a hashbrown crust on the bottom. I also add broccoli & mushrooms & any other veggies on hand. I did need to cook this for almost an hour & to finish it off I broiled it for a couple of minutes, but I also used more eggs. Go crazy & experiment with additional ingredients! Add some dill weed or fresh rosemary for added flavor.  -  04 Jan 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Great one course meal! Few changes:Mix everything in skillet but when to add potatoes, I removed the mixture,saute the baked potato slices..then everything on top [easier to remove from skillet] also used cheery tomatoes sliced in half). Please do brown for a few minutes: makes a great presentation!... with a saled served it at dinner! Received raves !!!  -  19 Sep 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was my first frittata and it was so pretty and easy to make, even the kids could do it! Next time I am putting extra cheese on because I like it to be artery clogging, mmmn. Oh! Just a tip: I had to cook it a bit longer (30 minutes) maybe my oven is a bit dodgy? Watch the middle of the pie to see if it's set.  -  01 Apr 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
