      I make several different breakfast frittata's and this one is different (in a good way) & tasty. I increased the bacon abit & used olive oil for the margarine. Threw in some green onions, jalapeno & a couple sliced fresh mushrooms. I cut back the tomatoes and glad I did because I think it would have overpowered the flavours for us otherwise. Nice change to our normal breakfast recipes, thanks for sharing.

      This was made for the Diabetic Tag Game in TOTM. It made a very filling brunch dish for DH and me. I substituted mushrooms for the zucchini. Delicious and filling. Thanks Nan for posting.
