This was nice,
I also tried this with veggies, do not eat pork, it was delicious I even added a yello pepper. It was prety and good.

We used this one as a veggie meal with broccoli (sorry no peppers in our frittata) and it was great. I like it a little over cooked, but as you all know by now, I am just a little weird. LOl
