"If you want to use the tomato, look for a roma plum tomato at the grocery store; it's perfect. This is a great lunch or supper for one person, and the recipe easily doubles too."

  1. would this work in a glass Anchor Hocking container in replacement for the pie pan?


  2. Please tell me if you think this will be good. 6 rashes of bacon, dice up and fry in a cast iron skillet. Chop up 2 cups of cauliflower and add to the browned bacon, stir together and soften the cauliflower a bit. Turn off heat. On top of this layer the cut up green onions. Pour your egg mixture over this. Top with mexican blend cheese. Decorate the top with strands of green onion and cherry tomato halves. I want to make this for two over the holidays along side hashbrowns.




  1. It was so good! And the cooking time as well! I made them into cupcakes for fun :) Perfect breakfast!!

  2. This was a wonderful start. I never had made a fritatta before. The first time I made it in a regular pie plate but it came out too thin. So I went on Amazon and found mini pie plates that ended up making the perfect size. This morning I used two large eggs with a couple of teaspoons of milk mixed in: a little ground sea salt and pepper into the eggs. I sauteed in butter, a few sliced mushrooms, a little red onion and green onions, a leftover cooked sausage patty crumbled and a few cooked leftover diced potatoes as that is what I had. Next time, I will use more veggies like diced tomatoes and spinach or kale. As a reminder, don't forget to grease your baking dish. I used coconut oil spray.


  3. This is a great recipe on the basic making of a frittata! I had never made one before, so this recipe was perfect on teaching me the basics! The first time I used this, I used a pie plate, but the second time I used a little round cake pan, and it came out just as great! DON'T forget to grease a pie plate WELL if you're using one. This recipe is so perfect, it's the same baking time pretty much for however many eggs you add! Thanks for teaching me to finally bake one of these things! No more basic omelets for this gal!


  4. Loved it! Used all veggies from the garden including kale, eggplant, beans, onion, carrot, and tomato. I also increased to 3 eggs since it looked like it needed it. Used parsley from the garden too! It's best to use a strong cheese, I think. Will definitely make again, and thanks for posting.


  5. This made a really quick and delicious lunch for us today. I used leftover veggies....asparagus, mushrooms, chopped baby potatoes (boiled & sauteed), cheddar cheese and seasoned with chives, basil, salt, pepper and garlic powder. I made this for two so I used 5 eggs and it was perfectly sized for a standard pie tin. I hate throwing away small amounts of cooked vegetables so this is a great recipe to use them up for lunch the next day. I'll definitely be making this again, especially as soon as my chicks grow up and start giving me fresh eggs! Thanks for the recipe Lennie :)

  1. I made this for breakfast this morning. DH and I are just starting on a diet. We're not going fanatic on it, but just trying to make sure what we put in our mouths is healthy. I used olive oil instead of butter, and used broccoli instead of zucchini, and added some chopped green pepper, sliced carrot, and shallots. I added a little skim milk to the beaten eggs, a few slices of swiss cheese in addition to the cheddar, and sprinkled some nutmeg on the top. It was great - DH said, "That's actually sort of good." Believe me, that's a compliment!


  2. A tasty weekend breakfast dish - and so much healthier than those fat loaded sausages or bacon! I used fresh from the garden chives instead of green onions, mozarella cheese & threw in a handful of Cavendish Farms frozen hash browns.Since I doubled the recipe & I was concerned about overflowing, I placed the veggies into a deep dish pie, poured the eggs over top, then added the cheese & a liberal shaking of lemon pepper. I probably won't use zucchini next time as I found it too squishy. Thanx Lennie!
