La Frittata

h2Chef’s note/h2
pA frittata is an Italian version of an omelet/quiche. It is easier to make than an omelet because it does not have to be folded. ONLY your imagination limits the kind of frittata you create. This is one of MY favorites: fried ham, roasted tomato, and cheese. I do the filling in advance./p
