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.

    Have you tried this with turkey ham? I don’t eat pork but do use turkey ham and occasionally smoked turkey leg in the place of ham in recipes. This sounds really good and I think it would work well with turkey ham or smoked turkey. What do you think?

    I don’t see why not. I could see using turkey ham as well as regular or turkey bacon. Really I think it’s versatile enough to use most any breakfast meat.
