    Wait a second..Crumble feta or ‘shave cheese paper thin’? Thanks!

  2. My family all enjoyed the Frittata. Because I needed to double the recipe I used a 9″x13″ casserole covering it with foil. However, I did need to bake it about 15 min longer before uncovering it for the final browning step. I didn’t double the amount of veggies, used 1 1/2. Would certainly make this again.
