Salmon, potato and scallion frittata
I love quiche, but I never make it.  The crust is what throws me.  That ingredient makes it simply to complicated for anything but a special occasion.

Twenty years ago I found myself in Venice, meandering down alley ways and over canals.  It was a sunny Sunday and the cafe's were full of people enjoying brunch.  In a spot I could never find my way back to I decided to join the trend.  It was at this little eatery that I enjoyed my first frittata. All the deliciousness of a quiche, all the simplicity of good Italian food.  Serve this for dinner or for a great brunch dish on weekends.
