This frittata was absolutely delicious! I prefer a little less rich and next time will use whole milk instead of half ‘n half.
But I disagree – it does not freeze well. I made a double batch and froze one. The crab texture was awful after reheated.
I’ve found that all of the frittatas are little soggy after freezing and reheating, so I just make one on the weekend, keep it in the fridge and have it for breakfast during the week.
