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! :-)
This was really tasty and filling. I would say it would easily serve more than four, probably more like six so next time I'll reduce it. I used potatoes that I had cooked earlier in the day and carmelized onions and pre-cooked bacon that I keep on hand in the freezer. This makes for very fast throw-togther meals like this one. Served with a garden salad on the side and enjoyed a nice dinner. Thanks for sharing your husband's recipe! We'll be doing this one again.
This was so delicious! Made for breakfast this morning. It took quite a long time to cook the potatoes, so next time, might cook them ahead. But they did have a good taste. Really good recipe; will make again!
