I made this recipe for breakfast this morning. I have to say it turned out great. The only think I didn't have was bell peppers and I left them out. I also decided to add in some cream instead of milk as I had a little cream left over and wanted to use it. All in all, it was very enjoyable. I would recommend trying it.

Mmmmm this recipe sounds heavenly. I am going to make it tomorrow for breakfast. I will come back and post how it turned out. I am always looking for something filling lately as I have to eat gluten free and I'm finding filling up at breakfast time quite difficult.

Glad you like the recipe moseleyrogerv, Let us know how it turns out!

Sounds very good! I make Chicken Frittata often and will try this.
