I made this recipe at work and it was marvelous. This is definitely not a light breakfast. The crabcakes bring a richness and body to the fritatta that would not be there with just crab meat. The crab meat itself is a great addition to the eggs as it tends to combine well with the fluffy eggs. The avocado give the frittata pockets of creaminess lodged in the matrix of egg and crabcakes. The cheese just nicely rounds out the flavors and the hot sauce really ties it all together.
