Frittata Recipe

Making a frittata is super easy, and it’s just like a quiche – without the crust!  This one is a version that I call Western Omelette Frittata since it has ham, onion, green peppers and cheese.

A frittata is versatile!

You can add pretty much anything to a frittata, and it’s a great way to use up leftovers.  I made this one because I got a dozen eggs for free at the grocery store, and packages of ham steaks were buy-one-get-one-free.

Frittata ingredients

Frittata recipe:

  • pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees
  • use cooking spray, and grease a 9 x 13″ baking pan.
  • beat 10 eggs with 1 cup of milk  (this is the base for any frittata)
  • dice ham into small cubes and spread over the bottom of the pan
  • dice a small onion and spread over ham
  • add diced green peppers over the ham & onions
  • shred cheddar cheese, and spread that on top of everything
  • carefully pour the eggs and milk mixture over everything
  • add salt & pepper to taste
  • bake for 30 minutes
Western Omelette Frittata – DONE!

How easy was that?  And if you use leftovers, it will take even less time to make.

Other versions using the basic frittata recipe:

  • canned crab meat and asparagus with muenster cheese
  • all veggies – mushrooms, onions, peppers – whatever you have in the fridge – with cheddar
  • a “chicken pot pie” frittata with diced chicken, peas, carrots, diced & cooked potatoes, green beans with muenster or Monterrey Jack
