Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

    Advertisement
  • Heat butter in a large ovenproof skillet over medium heat; cook and stir garlic and shallot in hot butter until shallot is softened, about 5 minutes. Stir mushrooms into shallot and garlic; cook and stir until mushrooms begin to brown, 8 to 10 minutes. Stir spinach into mushroom mixture, cover, and cook until spinach is wilted, about 5 more minutes, stirring occasionally.

  • Stir in ham, cook until ham begins to brown, about 5 minutes. Pour eggs evenly into skillet and cover.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until the frittata is set in the middle and lightly puffed, about 25 minutes. A knife inserted into the center of the frittata should come out clean. Sprinkle with Cheddar cheese, let stand until cheese has melted, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and black pepper.

Cook's Note:

We have made this all meat, all veggies, and a variety of combinations of both. The eggs will puff up a bit when covered in the pan; that is why the deep pan is needed. This can also be baked in a 13X9-inch oiled pan covered with foil or lid. You would have to add sauteed items to baking pan and then add eggs.

This was really good. I shorted the garlic a bit was afraid it might be too overpowering. Will add extra next time. I think this would be great with hollandaise sauce instead of the cheese as an alternative. Read More

Perfect the way it is. I also tried it with Jimmy Dean sausage (4oz cooked) and 5 eggs and used a meatloaf pan and it was really good. Read More
