Garden Cheddar Frittata

The potato crust on this pretty frittata is so easy to make, and everyone will love the taste. I’ve made it with goat cheese, too, and it’s delicious. You can also use other vegetables if you like. —Harbour House Inn B&B, Eva Amuso, Cheshire, Massachusetts

    This was fairly simple, but not very flavorful.

    Yummy! I've made this twice, the first time I added some green bell pepper. The second time I added bell pepper and a little browned breakfast sausage!

    Great dish for a crowd. I doubled it and served it for a football party last year. I'm making it again for our "first game of the year" party.

    Quite tasty! We added some red and orange bell peppers, but you could add any of your favorite veggies for a nice, wholesome breakfast!

    Great recipe. I did not have a zucchini so I used broccoli instead. Also had some baby yukon gold potatoes, so no need to peel. Great way to use up some veggies without meat! We will make this again
