      To finish cooking, place frittata under a preheated hot grill for 1 minute; cut into wedges and serve with hot buttered toast or with a spicy chutney.

      Scaled this down to 2 egg just for me. Caramelized one onion, added some cooked grated potatoes and some sautéed green peppers. Used Monterey Jack cheese. Great breakfast! Made for Variety is the Spice of Life event.

      Such a quick and easy dish ~ and delicious! I created my own variation using one onion, 8.5 ounces (drained) quartered artichoke hearts, several kalamata olives, two eggs, 1/4 cup half & half, parmesan cheese, feta cheese, pepper, and thyme leaves. Served with sliced Kumato tomatoes. Tagged for The Variety Event 2014.

      Wonderful! I made this for dinner! My variation to this dish was I added mushrooms and red bell pepper to the onions after caramelizing. I then cooked the peppers and mushrooms until tender, and added some bacon to the mixture. The cheese I used was Monterey Jack. It made for a delicious meal. Made for the Variety Event 2014.
