    I made this for dinner last night and it was absolutely delicious! And easy too. I didn’t have regular eggs on hand, so I used 1 & 1/3 cups of egg beaters and when I put it through the WW recipe builder, it came out to 3 points per serving. I’ll definitely be making this again.

    Thanks! =)

    I would like to add few notes (directly from Italy) to this easy but delicious and easy to prepare dish.

    1. Italian proper spelling is FRITTATA and not “fritrata”
    2. Very italian but for the mushroom that however sounds nice.
    3. Try this: do not sprinkle gruyere cheese but prepare some slices of:
    [sweet version] Asiago Cheese (or similar young and milky, mozzarella or provola (smoked) will work as well)
    [spicy version] some slices of gorgonzola chease or stilton or roquefort or bergarder (are all of the same family)
    Cook the frittata as described until the frittata is almost set but the top is still runny. Place cheese slices on top and fold the frittata as an envelope. Keep cooking few minutes more until the cheese internally has melted.
    Serve VERY hot and (carefully) enjoy.

    I wonder what you could use instead of Gruyere to make it Core? I can’t think of a creamy cheese like that, that is fat free. Any ideas?

    I feel like there are a few very very lowfat goat cheeses out there that would be an awesome substitute…also the laughing cow cheese has a lowfat variety that is incredible! Thats what I am going to use when I attempt this recipe!

    I like to put a chopped fresh tomato in this recipe and I use whatever cheese I happen to have on hand (parmesan or romano; cheddar or cheese slices (which is more creamy and lower in C’s). Sometimes, I slice up 2-3 turkey pepperettes and put that in as well; tastes like pizza, then serve with a bit of ketchup … yummy!
