6 frittatas


  • 2 teaspoons butter, or as needed

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil

  • 1 tomato, diced

  • ½ cup diced cooked ham

  • ½ teaspoon onion powder

  • ¼ teaspoon dried parsley

  • 9 eggs

  • ¾ cup shredded Cheddar cheese

  • 2 tablespoons milk

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Coat a large 6-cup muffin tin with butter.

  2. Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add tomato, ham, onion powder, and parsley. Cook and stir until tomato is warmed through and juice has evaporated, about 5 minutes.

  3. Whisk eggs, Cheddar cheese, and milk together in a large bowl with salt and pepper.

  4. Divide the ham mixture among the 6 muffin cups. Cover with egg mixture until about 3/4 full. Place muffin tin in a larger baking pan filled with hot water.

  5. Bake in the preheated oven until set, about 25 minutes. Cover with aluminum foil if tops start browning too much.

Cook's Notes:

These can also be made in six 8-ounce ramekins.
