Spanish-style frittata needs quite a lot of eggs.
And you can basicly throw in anything that sounds good, like leftover chicken,chorizo sausage,bacon,
onions,greens and peppers etc.

I'm definatly a pickled eggs girl. I'd never heard of them till I moved to the NE and our lad proudly served me one up on a fork dipped in salt. The look he got! But it was DIVINE! I now go nuts for them, so, pickle em all!
