I'm giving this a 4 for flavor, though we won't be making it again in our house. It was very tasty, but the egg/cream cheese/milk mixture was not an agreeable texture to any of us. I let it cook for a little over an hour and the mixture was still soft, though not liquid. I guess we all just like our eggs cooked hard.

We enjoyed this recipe, I cubed the potatoes instead of slicing and I used cream cheese, also did some amount adjustments, thanks for sharing pattikay!..Kitten:)

Roasting the potatoes and onions gave the frittata lots of flavor! I sliced the potatoes into 1/8" slices and roasted them with the onions in a large roasting pan. I also cut the recipe in half, which was just about right my (very hungry) husband and myself. Thanks Pattikay!
