    JustJanS's Note:

    Yet another way to make use of those big blue crabs we are catching. 1 crab gave us 1 cup of beautiful meat for this.I can't do what I suggest in the last step as I don't have a griller (broiler) so I finished it with the lid on for a couple of minutes to set the top. That worked fine and would be good for camping. Just cook the onion and potato slower and longer if you can't access a microwave.

      DH and I made this frittata for brunch today. We enjoyed it and thought it to be a nice alternative to the traditional frittata that we are used to making (mostly herb and mushroom). We both thought it needed a little extra flavor, so we served with DH's homemade habanero sauce on top, which did the trick nicely. The recipe doesn't specify, so DH put the cheese on top of the frittata just before baking in the oven. All in all, this was a nice dish and could easily serve 3 people. Thanks!

      Great recipe but if increasing the quantity this cooking method doesn't work well. I did 10 eggs for 4-6 servings and followed the recipe, and the quantity was such that the frittata had to be finished in the oven, and the bottom was burned. I would bake in a 350 oven for the entire cook and use the broiler to brown the top if needed. We cut the bottom bit off and everyone loved it!

      This is a delicious light and fluffy frittata! I had some leftover shrimp so chopped that up and used it instead of the crab, and used some leftover oven-roasted potatoes so I didn't have to microwave them first. Easy, filling, delicious - thanks for sharing the recipe!
