Cream Cheese Frittata

Martha Price Recipe

By Martha Price Karenella

Oh, yum! You know that anything with cream cheese just HAS to be good, and this is! I adapted this recipe from a Martha Stewart magazine; it is a reader submitted recipe. It is very good as is, and makes a great meatless meal. However, you can add sausage, potatoes, etc., if you like, and any other herbs or spices. - You may need to increase the liquid/egg content if you make additions - I'm not sure, I have always just made it as printed. Just so yummy!
I really like that this recipe makes a smaller amount than most frittata recipes, for smaller families, like mine!
