Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 3 tablespoons onion chopped
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 cup cream or milk
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese
  • 2 ounces thin sliced ham chopped

Instructions

  • Heat oil and butter in your oven-safe skillet over a medium flame. Add the onion and sauté until translucent, about 4 minutes.
  • Meanwhile preheat the broiler on low.
    Whisk the eggs, garlic, salt, pepper, milk, and parmesan cheese in a bowl. Then pour into skillet and stir to distribute the onions evenly and add the ham evenly over the top. Cover and cook until the egg is almost set, about 2 minutes.
    Then uncover and place the skillet under the broiler about 7 inches from the heat source, until the top is set and golden brown and fluffy, about 4 minutes. Cut into slices, garnish with fresh herbs, and serve.

Notes

  • Frittatas are a great way to use up leftovers. Try this gluten free frittata with ham or let your imagination take over and create your own combination.
  • Frittatas pack well so you can bring a few slices on a picnic or bring a slice to work for lunch.
  • I used a cast-iron skillet to make this frittata, but I have also used this oven safe skillet.
  • Frittatas are also an excellent make-ahead dish! Just refrigerate and heat them up when you want to serve.
