I tried this recipe this morning for the crew at work and got rave reviews. I was a bit reluctant with all the cheeses in it, but forged ahead. It was DELICIOUS!!! The only changes I made was to add some dried basil and thyme to the cheeses before stiring into the beaten eggs, and substituted cooked link sausage for the ham. I definitetly will make this again. Thanks Barb.
Excellent frittata When my family was young (and poor) at the end of the month, before pay day, I would make a similar dish where using left over veggies. (We called it "slop de jour") It was always different depending on what was in the fridge. Now that my sons are married their wives asked me one day, "how do you make slop de jour?" They had looked on the internet but couldn't find a recipe. We all had a good laugh when I explained that it meant slop of the day and changed with the seasons. I gave them this recipe and explained how to use whatever veggies they had on hand. We ALL love this recipe and Frittata sounds so much nicer than slop. Thanks for a great recipe
This is a delicious way to 'clean out your fridge'! I had odds and ends and found this recipe that used, basically, odds and ends and, boy, was it good! I used low-fat mozzarella and ricotta because of what I had on hand. I left out the ham and served this with a side of Chinese BBQ ribs. Also, I halved the recipe for my little family and have enough leftover for my lunch tomorrow. Thanks Barb, great recipe!
