    I've made Ina Garten's smoked salmon frittata and my husband and I both thought it was delicious. Here's a link to the recipe:

      This recipe calls for extra-large eggs. Do you have a conversion factor between extra-large and large eggs e.g., 12 extra-large=14 (or whatever) large?

        I like that one a lot, too. I'm getting some thck yummy bacon from the Greatful Palat...so I need something that uses or goes with bacon.

        Now we're doing "Breakfast For Dinner" as we have an apointment with the veterinarain and can't do brunch.

        Here's my loosely planned menu:

        Sweet Potato Biscuits with honey and butter and Pepper Jelly to Smear on.

        Gourmet bacon.

        Some sort of omelette or frittata

        Home Fries? Potato cakes?

        Hebrew "Origin" ale. Hot spiced apple cider (not hard)

        Fruit compote

          I made that frittata for a brunch a couple of weeks ago and it really is delicious. Everyone raved. As for the large/extra large egg thing, just throw in an extra egg or two if you're working with larges. Unlike a fancy cake, for instance, a frittata is pretty forgiving.

            Interesting. I never use a recipe when I make egg breakfast/brunch-type dishes. Do most of y'all? The most I'll do is look at a recipe to see if there are any ingredients I might throw in that I hadn't thought of.

            Cook's Country just published a Diner-Style Omelette recipe. I have made 7-8 of them in the last month. That should tell you how good they are. They work perfectly and my family loves them.

            You whip the eggs to lighten the omelette and you also whip a few tablespoons of whipped cream as well to be folded in. Their filling recipes are great too.

            The best omelette I have ever had...
