A wonderful Frittata!!! I made this for breakfast and received rave reviews. The only thing I did different was pre-cook the potatoes the night before in order to save a bit of time. What a quick and easy breakfast or brunch!! Thank you Babyoil for sharing this great recipe and be sure to thank you husband also. I recommend this dish to everyone! :-)
