Have you ever tried a frittata before?  Actually, a better question may be this?  Do you know what a frittata is?  A frittata is basically- "an Italian dish made with fried beaten eggs, resembling a Spanish omelet."  That sounds pretty good, right?

There are some fantastic frittata recipes and tutorials on how to make them online.

Well, the UK Cooperative Extension Office has developed an excellent frittata recipe that combines a little bit of Italy with some Kentucky flair and flavor. This morning, Kelly Bland shared the recipe with us on the WBKR morning show.

And, to make this even more appetizing, the recipe is quick, easy and fuss free. Here's how to make it!
