potato broccoli cheese Frittata

“Put potatoes in a frittata and you are guaranteed superb results! This is a favorite potato frittata of mine, simple and delicious and it pleases even fussy eaters!  I will choose a frittata over an omelet or a quiche any day!  Frittatas are not folded like omelets, and they don’t have a crust like quiches. They are easy to make, you just have to master the technique of sliding and turning them over.  The end result is pretty impressive in a serving dish! 

A bonus to this recipe is a generous one-wedge serving is only 136 calories or 4 Weight Watcher Points.    Enjoy!”
