Country Ham and Broccoli Frittata

About the recipe

Think of a frittata as a crustless quiche, or an omelet without any pressure of the ever-treacherous flip. It’s a great one-pan wonder that can easily feed a small group, and can be a perfect outlet for any cooked meats or vegetables you may already have in your refrigerator. The only special equipment you’ll need is a large nonstick skillet.

Serves: 4 to 6

Hands On Time: 25 minutes

Total Time: 25 minutes


8 large eggs

1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese

1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

1 tablespoon unsalted butter

1/2 cup diced country ham

1 cup cooked broccoli florets, cut into small pieces


Heat the oven to 350 degrees.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, cheeses, salt and pepper.

Melt the butter in a large cast iron or nonstick skillet over medium-low heat.

Add the country ham and broccoli, and cook, stirring, until heated through, about 3 minutes. Add the egg mixture to the pan and cook, stirring with a rubber spatula, until the bottom and sides have just set, about 5 minutes.

Transfer to the oven and bake until the center has set and the frittata has turned a light golden brown, 8 to 10 minutes.

Flip the frittata out onto a cutting board, cut into equal wedges and serve immediately.
