I found this recipe a few years ago and tried to make it with it with a few changes. I'm diabetic, and this fits into my low-carb and low-fat diet. Every time I serve a brunch, the frittatas are the first thing to disappear, and nobody knows they are low fat! —Susan Watt, Basking Ridge, New Jersey

"I used 7 whole eggs and one egg white and omitted the salt (I NEVER add salt when ham is an ingredient), and baked it for 20 minutes. It made 12 mini-frittatas. 3 of us polished them off in less than 5 minutes."

"Followed the recipe to a "T", too salty and it's texture was akin to rubber...I'll keep searching."

"Excellent! Made these for brunch today. I omitted the salt and used Mrs. Dash's Garlic and Herb Seasoning instead. Recipe actually made 12 mini frittatas."

"Delicious! I used Canadian bacon instead of ham and egg substitute for the egg whites. My muffin tin must be smaller cuz I ended up with a full dozen muffins and ended up cooking them about 27 mins."

"These were really good, I had no problems with water from the ham and did not reduce the salt. I guess it depends what kind of ham you have."
