Great way to use up left-over ham and to incorporate more spinach into our diet. I didn't have any red bell peppers on hand so I just left them out still delicious but I think it would have been even better with the peppers. Other than no peppers I followed the recipe exactly but I did have to cook it a lot longer than 7 to 10 minutes to get the center set. After cooking for 16 minutes on the stove-top the center was still not set even though the edges (and bottom) were nice and brown. I would have turned up the flame but didn't want to burn the bottom so I just transferred the skillet to the oven and broiled it for 3 minutes on the top rack set as close as possible to the heating element and that finished it nicely. Cooled for 5 minutes before slicing to allow the whole thing to firm up a bit. I'm wondering if I didn't get the spinach dry enough or maybe my skillet was smaller than the ones everyone else used making the frittata thicker (a little over an inch thick in the center) in any case it came out great so try finishing under the broiler if yours seems to be taking too long to cook.

Great idea but not enough eggs to make it a true frittata. The bottom of mine burned while the eggs were cooking. Read More

Pretty tasty although with the ham already being salty I found it a bit too salty so would probably either not add any additional salt or maybe just half. I'm trying to get my 12 month old to eat more spinach and eggs and she ate a bit of it! I added 2 more eggs as I found it quite spinach dense with only 3. A tasty dish, even better with salsa on top!

My family and I really enoyed this recipe. I did modify it a bit by : omitting the ham, subing cream cheese for the feta, cheddar instead of mozerella, fresh spinach, cipollini onions, and butter instead of oil. Had to make due with what I had on hand... ;) I doubled the recipe for 4 kids and 2 adults and although we were very full, we all wished for seconds. Read More

Really enjoyed this frittata. Used fresh spinach and lots of it so had to increase the eggs to 5. We cut the ham into the tiniest pieces. Thanks Stephylouwhoo! This is a keeper. Read More

Very tasty. But it should go into the oven to finish cooking. This will prevent the burned bottom problem. The way a frittata is cooked is what sets it apart from an omelet or other similar dishes. To make a frittata, the eggs are cooked on the stove in a hot skillet, along with the fillings, for a few minutes until the outer edges are set. Then the pan is transferred to the oven where the eggs finish cooking. I cooked mine on the stove until I saw the edges firm and then transferred it to an oven at 350 degrees for about 5 minutes. It came out perfect with no burned bottom. Would definitely recommend this to others. Read More

This was wonderful! I changed up the ingredients a bit - fresh spinach red onion broccoli sun-dried tomato garlic salt pepper & zaatar spice but still used 3 eggs to keep it light. This was my first time finishing a frittata on the stove-top as opposed to the oven. Love love love the technique! Read More

Heed the instructions to thaw the spinach. I didn't and I think that's why the bottom burned before the middle set. Read and heed! Otherwise a good recipe: easy tasty nutritious and makes a good quick supper. Read More
