MY REVIEW

"This was a great recipe! Mine took longer for the eggs to set, but it was worth it. I used regular onion, regular potatoes (salted and peppered) cooked in oil, white sharp cheddar cheese, and 1/4 tsp of rosemary. I added some chopped ham when I put that potatoes in towards the end of cooking and it added great flavor."

"One of my favorite frittatas. I substituted shallots for the red onion for a milder flavor. Delicious!"

"this was wonderful! i made it a classic frittata and it came out beautifully. i included about 6 strips bacon that needed eating and next time i might include more veggies like peppers, mushrooms,corn or peas. also i will do this as written just to see the difference."

"Only change is put both onions and potatoes on the bottom. It forms a nice sturdy base."

"This was pretty good. I do wish it was not as greasy though....next time I will use a bit of canola oil or cooking spray instead of ALL THAT BUTTER. I made this out of the "best loved recipes" cookbook. I think this would be a 4 or 5 star recipe to me w/out all that butter."
