Excellent recipe! Just combined the ingredients on the stovetop (minus the green pepper) to make scrambled eggs instead of a frittata. Wonderful!

Who doesn't love a good frittata? This is a good base for a great one and you can basically put anything you want to put into it.

Taking my cue from the name of the recipe, I've made this frittata with "what's in the fridge." Although once I did use crabmeat and Swiss cheese, I've also substituted those for turkey sausage and cheddar, spinach, tomato and feta cheese, and even chopped ham and jarlsberg cheese. The basic idea is great, easy to make and very tasty. I'm not a pepper person so omit and use whatever eggs I have in the fridge. Guess what? Comes out terrific every time!
