Crustless Vegetable Frittata Recipe

Wednesday, October 1, 2014
I love vegetables and this crustless vegetable frittata recipe is so versatile to whatever you like!


When I was a child growing up we would have this for dinner often mixed with sausage, pepperoni or leftover meat in the fridge even cold cuts added in.









Breakfast really consisted of pizza fritta in our house which was fried dough most of the time. Sometimes, my grandmother, Victoria would have coffee lots of cream, add a little sugar and then she would put in crushed saltine crackers to her coffee for breakfast. I would just stare at that concoction and wonder where she came up with the idea. She called it ah zupa. Not sure the spelling. Grandma was from Rome Italy, broken English and grew up poor. Everything we had leftover would never go to waste. She would even freeze the leftover coffee into ice cubes. A darn good concoction it was! Great memories.
