    This is a great and simple frittata that is perfect for a quick breakfast that can last a couple of mornings or for when you have company in town. Also great as quick morning breakfast egg muffins, just place in regular-sized muffin pan and bake at 350 until fluffy and egg is set. - 6/28/09

  • Thank you for sharing. I'm a big fan of Cooking light and I love their recipes. This particular recipe is a good meal it has your basics and yet it's not too high on Na+. It's easy to make and you can tweak the ingredients to suit your tastes. It's good for lunch too! - 7/10/09
