This recipe comes from the Better Homes and Gardens test kitchen. It was printed on an advertisement. Since DH is diabetic, I am always looking for ways to add veggies to his diet. Having them in a frittata in the morning works well. We enjoyed this hope you do too.

I made this for the frittata challenge for ZWT4. I did have to subsitute some of the veggies. My DH had already used my zucchini and I am not big on tomatoes with my eggs. I added green peppers, onion, mushrooms, & corn. I had a family brunch and this went over great. As Nebraska corn farmers my father & brother really like the corn in it. Made for team CHIC CHEFS

We really enjoyed this frittata. I loved the addition of corn and zucchini in this. It makes a very colorful and flavorful dish! Made for Zaar World Tour 4 for the Italy Forum Frittata Challenge for the Tastebud Tickling Travellers.

I overcooked the eggs on the stovetop, so my frittata came out a little rubbery, but that was more my fault than the recipes. I used fresh corn, which went well with the vegetables and added some nice nutrition. Overall, the flavor was a little bland for my taste. An easy fix for that would be to add a little pepper. There's probably a better, more subtle, approach of adding another herb to bring out the corn like the basil does the tomato.
