    CountryLady's Note:

    From Food & Drink - the best of the decade, this "crustless quiche" or "flat omlette"is good for breakfast, lunch, brunch or a light dinner!! You can vary the fillings - leek & bacon, smoked salmon & chives, use your imagination - but the method stays the same.

      Dear C.L., I do make frittatas often. Made this recipe for tiffin yesterday and got an update from DH that he loved it. I added minced roast beef that I had made the previous night and some chopped green chillies and coriander leaves instead of the chives(was not avlbl in the supermarket) and cheddar cheese instead of the gruyere cheese (never used it it is avlbl they say but never seen it myself) and followed the rest of the instructions very religiously. (I did keep some for DS and meself too for b'fast and we gave it a thumbs up too. Fay

      Wonderful brunch! I left out the vegetable oil and used only butter. I washed the spinach and leaving some moisture put it in a microwavable bowl and microwaved for 45 seconds, drained and chopped before adding to the egg mixture. Instead of whipping cream I substitited fat free half-and-half. Instead of putting in the oven, I covered the pan with a tight fitting lid and allowed to cook until set. Served this with my whole wheat sourdough biscuits and fresh fruit.
