Recipe: Green eggs and ham frittata
Posted April 19, 2012
Here's an easy recipe for a weeknight meal, using fresh, seasonal produce.
Green Eggs & Ham Frittata
Time: 30 minutes
8 large eggs
1 tablespoon fresh dill
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
2 leeks, white and light green parts only, diced
1 bunch (5 ounces) baby spinach, chopped
1/2 cup diced ham
1/2 cup shredded havarti or Muenster cheese
Position rack in upper third of oven; preheat to 450°F.
Whisk eggs, dill, salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Heat oil in a large ovenproof nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add leeks; cook, stirring, until softened, about 4 minutes. Add spinach and ham; cook, stirring, until the spinach is wilted, about 1 minute.
Pour the egg mixture over the vegetables and cook, lifting the edges of the frittata so uncooked egg can flow underneath, until the bottom is light golden, 2 to 3 minutes.
Sprinkle cheese on top, transfer the pan to the oven and bake until the eggs are set, 6 to 8 minutes. Let rest for about 3 minutes before serving. Serve hot or cold.
