My mom rarely cooked us breakfast, but when we had company she went "all out". This is a very simple recipe. There are probably lots of similar ones out there, but this one is dear to my heart because it was TRULY a "special occasion" whenever my mom made this. I still love it to this day, although I've embellished it plenty from time to time--YUM! Note for Zaar World Tour II: Frittatas are Italian in origin.
