Not having made a frittata in the microwave before, I thought this was a good basic recipe to try, adding my own touches. Since there are just my two of us, I used 5 extra large eggs; diced half an Idaho potato and sautéed it with green onion and a touch of garlic; then sautéed diced mushrooms - setting aside extra for a topping at the end; I then added some sautéed diced Black Forrest ham, mixed the lot into the whipped egg; cut in a little Cheddar and Jack cheeses, covered the dish and set the timer for 3 minutes. I then uncovered the dish, spread on some Pico de Gallo (fresh salsa), added more cheese on top; covered the dish again and microwaved an additional 3 minutes (full power, 1100 watts) until done. I let it rest for 5 minutes, topped with the remaining mushrooms and served. It came out just right, not dry or wet, and delicious. Frittatas are great for experimentation. A nice glass of white wine was the perfect finish.
