I made this with onions I had already caramelized in the crockpot. Otherwise made this recipe as directed. The flavor is so-o very good! I'll be making this one again! Made for Aussie #17.

This frittata was really good, didn't lack any richness despite only having four egg yolks in it. I made mine with one large onion, caramelized that and then made up the rest of the weight with leek because I had one to use up. I'm looking forward to the leftovers for lunch tomorrow. :D

YUMMMM! I made this for the March recipe swap in the Austraila/New Zealand forum. This is fantastic! I actually halved the recipe and used canned potatoes that I diced. The sage and onion with the potato is really nice! I love the sweet/salty and nutty (from the parm) combo. As a vegetarian, I am always looking for lowfat protien quick meals. I will be making this again! Thanks for posting little wing!
