Ham and Gruyere Frittata

Posted by moderndaygourmet on April 13, 2008

This is a great breakfast-for-dinner type meal.  It makes just enough for two to three people.   You can double it and use a larger pan for more of a crowd.

Ham and Gruyere Frittata

1 tablespoon butter
1/4 chopped onion
2 red potatoes, diced
5 eggs
1 tablespoon milk
1/2 cup grated Gruyere cheese
Salt and pepper
1/2 cup chopped smoked ham

Melt butter in a small iron skillet or other ovenproof pan over medium heat. Add onion and potatoes and cook 10 minutes or until soft. Whisk eggs, milk, cheese, and salt/pepper and pour over the onion and potatoes in the skillet. When the egg starts to cook, pull the frittata away from the sides so the uncooked egg can fill the space. When the eggs are about halfway cooked, add the ham. Put the skillet in a preheated 400 degree oven for 10-15 minutes or until the egg is done and the top is puffy.

Sweet potato/banana quick side

Posted by moderndaygourmet on April 8, 2008

This isn’t rocket science, but tasty and easy.  Cut up one sweet potato into chunks and boil for 10 minutes or so till fork-tender (you could also roast it, but that takes longer).  Drain water and mash potato chunks along with one banana.  Add about 1/2 tablespoon butter, a spoonful of brown sugar and a little cinnamon.

We ate this with jerk-seasoned shrimp and black beans and rice – all very Caribbean.
