    My BF says it is good for what it is. I like the fact that it only has 4 egg yolks. We made this for dinner. I think you could definitely serve this at a brunch. I don't think it was the best thing I ever tasted but for light eggs it was very nice.

    This is SO good - definitely on rotation in my dinner cookbook. I have never had problems with the recipe. I follow the recipe to a T except for the fact that trader joe's doesn't carry smoked cheddar, so i use reduced fat smoked gouda instead. SO delicious. I always have these ingredients on hand, as I can make 4 frittatas with one bag of frozen potatoes. Tonight I added sliced fresh mushrooms once I cooked the potatoes, onions and ham for a bit, and my boyfriend said it was the best ever. DELICIOUS! TRY IT!

    Not the best frittata I've ever made, lacks flavor. I followed the recipe using smoked mozzarella that I had on hand. Even with the 1/2 teaspoon of tabasco it just didn't have anything interesting about it.

    I made this recipe as written except for the amount of eggs: since I didn't have the required 8 and was cooking for two, I used 5 whole eggs. I used Tillamook Smoked Medium Cheddar, and cooked everything in my 8" Calphalon frittatta pan set. It was delicious, and the leftovers were good, too. I served it with a fruit salad.

    We love this. I'm not really a huge egg yolk fan, so that may influence my opinion :) I actually used 7 egg whites and 2 whole eggs. We used smoked cheddar, and that really helped add flavor, since there aren't as many yokes. This is a really healthy breakfast. I make this on Sunday night as I'm cooking dinner, and then we eat it on workday mornings. It reheats beautifully.

    This was excellent!! I made a couple of changes/additions. I subbed real bacon bits for the Canadian bacon; used whole eggs; added chopped mushrooms; and I couldn't find any smoked cheese so I added an 1/8 tsp. of liquid smoke to the mixture. It was perfect!! Warm, creamy, smokey . . . a perfect light weeknight meal with salad greens. Yum!!

    This was delicious! And SO easy. I also made a double recipe in a 13x9 casserole pan, and cooked for 350 for 15 minutes, then broiled on high for 2 minutes. Same overall effect, but easier to keep/transport.
