"What's in the Fridge" Frittata Recipe

Great for a last-minute breakfast, brunch or lunch, guests rave about the crab and Swiss combination in this frittata. I also like to use sausage and cheddar with asparagus or whatever's in season—and in the fridge. —Deborah Posey, Virginia Beach, Virginia

"Taking my cue from the name of the recipe, I've made this frittata with "what's in the fridge." Although once I did use crabmeat and Swiss cheese, I've also substituted those for turkey sausage and cheddar, spinach, tomato and feta cheese, and even chopped ham and jarlsberg cheese. The basic idea is great, easy to make and very tasty. I'm not a pepper person so omit and use whatever eggs I have in the fridge. Guess what? Comes out terrific every time!"
