Ham and Vegetable Frittata With White Cheddar

Ham and Vegetable Frittata With White Cheddar
Recipe by Dragon

This is another great quick and healthy meal. I love it with ham but you can easily substitute sausage or chicken. The vegetables are also up for substitutions. Add whatever you have on hand. The one thing I never change is the cheese. I just love white cheddar. I can't live without it. Enjoy!

Makes 2-4 servings

Ingredients:
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/4 teaspoon hot pepper flakes
1/4 cup red onion, chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
2/3 cup ham, chopped
1/2 red pepper, chopped
1/2 yellow pepper, chopped
1/2 cup grape tomatoes, halved
1 teaspoon rosemary, chopped
6 eggs
Pepper to taste
1/3 sharp white cheddar, grated

Directions:
1. Preheat broiler. In an 8- or 9-inch ovenproof skillet combine butter, oil and red pepper flakes over medium heat.

2. When the butter is melted, add the onions and garlic cook until softened. Add the ham and peppers and cook for another 2 minutes.

3. In a bowl whisk together eggs, rosemary and pepper to taste. Pour egg mixture evenly over the skillet and cook for 2 minutes. Add tomatoes and cook for another 4 minutes, or until edges are set but center is still soft.

4. Sprinkle cheddar over frittata and broil about 4 inches from heat until cheese is bubbling, about 1 minute. Let frittata rest for a couple of minutes before cutting into wedges.

This looks scrumptious! I'm always excited when I'm having brunch at someone's house and they pull a frittata out from the under the broiler - my favorite savory brunch item.

Your frittata looks wonderful. The grape tomatoes pop out with color. This looks like a terrific recipe. The thing I like about frittatas is that you can serve them at room temperature. Sometimes I take them to potluck events and the men really go for them.

That looks/sounds great - I bet it'd make a nice change of pace for dinner, accompanied with just a salad.
