The recipe was reduced to 3 servings and made a very nice lunch for DH and I. I subbed a grated white cheese for the Fontina. The frittata was cooked until almost set and then flipped onto a plate and slide back into the pan to cook the top in lieu of placing under the broiler. This was served with left over Recipe #59917 and fresh baked bread.
