This frittata takes only six ingredients usually found on hand. It's so easy to put together. Though I've only made it with Jarlesberg Swiss, you can use your favorite cheese(s) such as fontina, mozzarella, provolone, jalapeno jack, asiago; or a combination of a couple. I increase the olive oil to a tablespoon. Recipe from Simply Recipes online.
