    If you like to sleep in on the weekends, but don't want to starve your family by making them wait for an hour or more while your casserole cooks, this recipe is for you! I have never cooked eggs in the microwave before, so I was a little skeptical...but this came out really good! I think the only thing I might do differently next time is sautee the onion first for a little sweetness. Well, I might also add more cheese into the mixture (but we LOVE cheese). This is a very good base recipe that has plenty of room for experimentation. -Try serving with a sliced tomato...mmm! Thanks for a quick and tasty brunch, Sunedan!  -  06 Jan 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I didn't microwave this recipe, but used it as a guide to make a baked frittata because I liked the ingredients in it. It turned out very well. I also didn't put any cheese on it. Everyone liked it but I can't rate it as a microwave recipe.  -  02 Jan 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    The cooking time is way too long for a 1,000 watt microwave, and I even took it out early. I had to use bacon instead of ham, it was really salty, but that's my own fault. I will not make this recipe again, but try another recipe for microwave frittata.  -  26 May 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
