"In spite of the glowing reviews, we didn't like this recipe. Using the bread crumbs made it dense. Still, try it and form your own opinion, but we'll be looking at other recipes for something that's more like an actual frittata."

"I added ham and a couple extra eggs and used cheddar cheese instead of mozarella for this recipe. It was very good. Will make again."
