Although it makes a delightful breakfast, the frittata could also be served with a green salad for a lunch or light dinner.

    Made this for brunch with a side of cornbread and found it really tasty and easy to make. I didn't have an iron or similar skillet that could go from stovetop to oven, so in lieu of cooking the eggs on the stovetop prior to baking, I just poured them over the sautéed vegetables into a baking pan and baked them for a bit longer in the oven (about 5 extra minutes). I would recommend two changes next time: smaller scallion pieces, and more cheese.

    This was such a simple but delicious dish! I cannot believe how lovely it was with a salad for a light dinner! Will definitely be using again and again!

    People, People!!! Please stop whining about nutritional values for each recipe! Just do as KT556 suggests, and buy a book...it's not hard to figure it out for yourself. I have one, and it's really not hard to do! Step out of your comfort zone and do it yourself!! mags98366

    I made this for dinner a couple of nights ago, it was super easy and delicious. Definitely going to make it again, especially because it was so simple and quick! I do think that it needs garlic, so next time I'll be adding chopped garlic when the veggies are half cooked.

    Come on Folks -- It's a 6-ingredient-recipe. Don't be so lazy. Get yourself a good Calorie / Carb / Fat counting book (under $10) and figure it out. Don't forget to add / subtract according to how YOU make the recipe i.e., different veggies, cheese, "fat", etc IF YOU ARE DIABETIC and can't tell at a glance how many carb servings and/or exchanges are in this recipe, GET YOURSELF TO A DIABETES EDUCATOR IMMEDIATELY!

    Yummy! Great quick breakie for dinner recipe. Will definitely eat this again! I do agree that putting it in the broiler for a few seconds after it is baked gives a very dark, crispy topping.

    For being such a simple recipe, this has a lot of flavor. I have used cheese and chive flavored egg beaters in place of some of the eggs, and had great results. It did not puff up, though, so I will try adding the splash of milk next time. Thanks for the tip!

    I just made this and it was a big hit! Just a few suggestions: Put a splash of milk (or heavy cream) in the egg mixture for extra fluffy and airy results. Use the broiler to brown the top for 2 to 4 minutes once the inside is already cooked through and your top is still yellow. Fritattas are a great way to use up left-overs!

    Made this yesterday (01/04/09)! I used Shitake mushrooms and added a bit more Parmesan Cheese to the top. I also used Egg Beaters in place of regular eggs. Didn't have an "ovenable" skillet, so I cooked it in a regular skillet and transferred mixture to a casserole dish. It required more baking time (20-30 min.), but it came out a beautiful golden brown and was very robust in flavor w/half the calories! Two thumbs up!

    sounds wonderful. You can add any veggie you like. Add Romano Cheese right in the mixture before baking, tastes better
