    PanNan's Note:

    This frittata is different from most because the egg whites are stiffly beaten before adding the egg yolks, creating a beautiful light and puffy golden edge/crust. Use the vegetables and cheese of your choice. It's based on a recipe in Martha Stewart's Everyday Food magazine. She suggested leeks, grape tomatoes and crumbled goat cheese, but we used onion, garden tomatoes and light cheddar, and it was fabulous.

      Can't even remember how long ago I'd saved this recipe to make, forgot about it and found it today and decided to make it for breakfast. Was DH happy I did!! It's so light and fluffy and really looked pretty. I used onions, bacon, fresh tomatoes, spinach and swiss cheese that I sauted in the bacon grease. Then followed the very clear directions, YUM!! It diffently is not the same texture as most frittatas but a lovely change that we very much enjoyed, and a plus is it's fast and easy to put together.

      I made this tonight as directed, it was more like a baked omlette, it was VERY fluffy, perhaps like a souffle frittata. I was really wanting a frittata, it was lovely - just not what I was wanting.

      This recipe is just fabulous! I made it as written but in future I'll adjust the veggies to suit my family's taste. It's a wonderful base frittata recipe. Made for ZWT Frittata Challenge.
