While I do love blue cheese, I have to agree that the blue cheese gave this frittata a slightly off taste, almost as if one of my ingredients had gone bad. I didn't have walnuts, so I used chopped pecans, which I sprinkled on top. I also used only about 6 ounces of spinach and it still seemed pretty full of spinach. Instead of egg substitute I used regular eggs (2C eggs substitute = 8 large eggs). Seemed to work out fine. I refuse to spray my non-stick skillet with cooking spray (that will ruin your pan!), so I just used a small amount of olive oil. I had to add another small dollop after a couple of batches of spinach. Despite the slightly off taste of the blue cheese, we still very much enjoyed this recipe, and I'd easily make this again with a different cheese (maybe feta!).

Not our favorite frittata at all. While the texture cooked very nicely, the blue cheese added a sourness that we didn't care for, and some did not like the crunchiness of the nuts. Won't make again.

Delicious! I've made this several times. It's good for any meal or occasion, and it's very easy to make.

This is a wonderful dish. I made it using eggs rather than egg substitute. It is great for breakfast, lunch or dinner. I also made it for a couple in my church. The husband had had surgery and we were providing meals for them.. They are big fans of blue cheese and really loved this dish. They ate the left overs for breakfast the next morning with fruit.

excellent! I have made this multiple times. So good! Just be prepared that it takes a good long while to bake in the oven, mine is in for as long as an hour to get it totally browned and solid in the middle.

Hubby and I thought the blue cheese flavor was a little too intense, so the next time, I used gorgonzola instead and we liked it much better.
