Corn Frittata With Cheese

"This recipe comes from the Better Homes and Gardens test kitchen. It was printed on an advertisement. Since DH is diabetic, I am always looking for ways to add veggies to his diet. Having them in a frittata in the morning works well. We enjoyed this hope you do too."

  1. I made this for the frittata challenge for ZWT4. I did have to subsitute some of the veggies. My DH had already used my zucchini and I am not big on tomatoes with my eggs. I added green peppers, onion, mushrooms, & corn. I had a family brunch and this went over great. As Nebraska corn farmers my father & brother really like the corn in it. Made for team CHIC CHEFS
  2. Delicious! My hubby and I like egg dishes for dinner and this one was a treat. I omitted the zucchini and used chopped green bell pepper instead. I used dried basil as I didn't have fresh. Increased the cheese, using shredded low fat Cabot Cheddar. I did add more spices, a couple of shakes of Tony Chachere's Cajun Seasoning jazzed up the flavors. Scallions (green onions) add color and flavor. Tonight I'll use a can of Green Giant steamfresh sweet corn instead of frozen. Also, I found that I didn't need to turn on the broiler to melt the cheese, since I used a skillet that wasn't ovenproof. All you have to do is cover the skillet, lower the heat, and the cheese melts perfectly! Great recipe to use various veggies and cheeses on hand!
  3. We really enjoyed this frittata. I loved the addition of corn and zucchini in this. It makes a very colorful and flavorful dish! Made for Zaar World Tour 4 for the Italy Forum Frittata Challenge for the Tastebud Tickling Travellers.
  4. I overcooked the eggs on the stovetop, so my frittata came out a little rubbery, but that was more my fault than the recipes. I used fresh corn, which went well with the vegetables and added some nice nutrition. Overall, the flavor was a little bland for my taste. An easy fix for that would be to add a little pepper. There's probably a better, more subtle, approach of adding another herb to bring out the corn like the basil does the tomato.
  5. Wasn't sure about the corn in this recipe, but the corn worked perfectly with the other ingredients. The flavor of the frittata was really good. Thank you. Made for ZWT4, Italy, Frittata Challenge. The Mamma Mias


I came to this site in March of 2004. It was then called Recipezaar. This site was the first on-line site that I ever joined. I first popped in 2003 while searching for a Peach Cobbler Recipe. In March of 2004, DH was having shoulder surgery and I was looking for a Split Pea Soup. Once again I found myself on Zaar as it came to be called. Over the years I hung out and learned from some of the best home cooks in the country, I posted over 700 recipes on the site, reviewed over 3500 recipes and posted over 3000 food photos. Over the next 10 years the site made many changes and in 2010 it was sold to to Food Network and became Until last year we played games, talked and shared with one another. As a result of the community and the relationships I built I got to meet some wonderful people from all over the country. I also have a great number of friends that I have never meet face to face. Some of us still hang out at various places across the net. Zaar was more than a cooking community. It was an internet community of friendship. Life is an adventure ever changing.
