  1. Delicious! I made this for a use up fridge store before heading on vacation lunch. I didn't expect it to be quite so good, but it was really really tasty. I made pretty much as stated and will be making again. Thanks for a great and healthy meal!
  2. Absolutely wonderful! Here are the modifications I've incorporated, to rave reviews. My preference is for yellow-flesh potatoes, so I use those whenever possible. Once in the skillet, sprinkle potatoes to taste with black pepper and oregano. To avoid burning, I tend to use a medium low heat and cook the potatoes until they are mostly browned on at least 1 side, up to 20 minutes. After the spinach has wilted I add 2 sundried tomato halves, julienned and cut crosswise, and 2 TB fresh basil, chopped, in addition to the garlic and green onions; substitute 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese for the cheddar. It takes about 30 minutes for my eggs to set on low heat when covered.
  3. I have made this recipe a few times now and it is a keeper. Simple to put together and delicious! Almost anything you like can be added to this Frittata to match your tastes (e.g. bacon, sundried tomatoes, etc.) Great recipe, thanks for sharing!
  4. Made this for Christmas brunch! DH and I loved this frittata! Sadly, time was running away from me, and I had to bake my potatoes in the microwave to soften them (tacky, I know) but it got the job done. I halved the spinach but added a small handful of mushrooms! Yummy! Great recipe, thanks for posting!
  5. This was quite tasty and easy to prepare. I left out the garlic (not for breakfast) and added some crumbled bacon. I bet mushrooms would have been good if only my DH would eat them. I had to cook it about 10 minutes for the eggs to fully set. I'll definitely make this again.
