"This is a beautiful frittata. We eat it for breakfast, lunch or dinner. With fresh fruit or salad depending on the meal. Enjoy"

"This was my first attempt at a frittata. I thought it would be difficult, but it was so easy. I did have to make a couple of changes because I had to use what I had on hand. I used Pepper Jack cheese instead of Feta and instead of 1 cup chopped onion, I used about 1/2 cup chopped fresh green onions. I would recommend this to anyone. What a great dish for those cold winter nights!!!!"
"I used an entire box of frozen spinach, opted for mushrooms and passed on the ham. Served it with fresh fruit and toast. Everyone was pleased. Update: used 1 cup smoked ham, 3/4 cup mushrooms, 1 cup feta, 3/4 cup moz, 9 eggs and whole box frozen spinach. Wonderful again!"
"Absolutely sensational frittata. I used a 10-inch pie plate so slightly upped most of the ingredients, which meant the cooking time was a bit longer. My only real change was to use a bunch of chopped fresh English spinach rather than frozen. This really is a fabulous, fabulous, fabulous frittata, and so quick and easy to make. Thanks so much for posting."
"Awesome - added diced roasted tomatoes, artichoke, feta, italian sausage, colby jack cheese, and baked it in a square buttered casserole - delicious with an organic sourdough loaf."
"This was JUST the type recipe that I was looking for, for brunch. My friend did NOT have a cast-iron skillet, which is what I normally make frittatas in, so being able to make the entire thing in a Pyrex pie pan was crucial. We didn't want to add the meat so we made this following the recipe except the ham. It turned out so good and so flavourful that there were no leftovers! I'm so glad that you posted this basic and easy recipe. Thanks!"
"YUMMMM! Easy, quick and delicious. Served for Father's Day Brunch and everyone loved it. I changed it a little to my taste - used 9 eggs, a whole pack of spinach, and added garlic powder, oregano and dill to the spinach mixture. Also left off the mozzarella topping. Will make this often!"
"Really good....and great for to add to a brunch buffet. I made it exactly as the recipe stated and I will certainly be making this for company in the future!"
"Very good--had this for dinner last night and lunch today. I used a whole package of spinach and some turkey sausage, but left out the mushrooms. I know it says "salt and pepper to taste", but I forgot to salt the spinach and onion layer and it really needed it. I'll also leave out some of the onions next time. I also only had a sprinkle of grated cheddar to put on the top, and I think that was enough."
"YUM! This is soooo good- but I do have to admit I changed it a bit but simply because of what i had on hand and because we are in the middle of a huge kitchen remodel and are cooking with a barbeque and a microwave! I used 3/4 bag of fresh baby spinach instead of frozen and crumbled leftover bacon instead of ham. I sauteed onion and mushroom on the barbeque side burner then added the fresh spinach to wilt it and poured the egg feta mix on, lowered the burner, put on a lid and let it cook that way. It only took a few minutes and added the mozarella on top last few minutes. My husband's addition was the best however - some wonderful bloody marys to go with this perfect sunday breakfast."
"I made this last night for my husband and I to eat for breakfast over the next couple of days. I used 3/4 package of fresh spinach rather than frozen spinach, added 2 additional eggs and left the ham out. I also used fresh grated mozzarella. It was excellent!"
"We did not have any ham."
"yummy and easy to make :-)"
"I used egg beaters, fresh (wilted) spinach, chopped fresh garlic, feta, ham, and shredded romano, because that's what was in the 'fridge. Delicious!"
"This was very good and so easy! I made a few changes to use what I had on hand. This is an excellent recipe for customizing to your personal tastes! I added the whole package of spinach (why not?), 2 cloves of garlic, and fresh basil. We don't eat meat, so I left out the ham. It was delicious! You really could add any of your favorite omelet ingredients."
