I sauteed the mushrooms with some onions before combining it with other ingredients. I also added shredded mozzarella to the mixture and on top. I added about 1/4 teaspoon of salt in the mixture as well. It was delicious and a definite make again!

This is a very nice basic recipe that has lots of room for alterations based on what you like in your frittata. I had a bunch of veggies in my fridge that I knew wouldn't be used quickly enough before they spoiled so I tossed in broccoli, mushrooms, green onions, and grape tomatoes. Sauteed everything except tomatoes in a pan before mixing with ricotta cheese and eggs. Instead of parmesan I used a Mexican blend of 4 cheeses I had leftover from a taco dinner. Added cayenne and nutmeg to the other spices. Sprinkled more cheese on top and baked for 30 mins. I might have baked it a few minutes too long because it was a little dry but it was definitely a nice change from same old boring eggs and toast breakfast! Next time I might add some garlic, green peppers and potatoes. Would also be great with some bacon or sausage in there too. The possibilities are endless!


This was good and healthy and also easy to make. The kids ate it up. However I thought it needed it a something else maybe a little strong cheese such as feta and a little nutmeg? However quite good!
