I love grilled ham and cheese, so I wanted to use those flavors in a breakfast-type dish. I came up with this frittata and it turned out great. Call me crazy, but I even added a little dollop of sour cream to my slice. I tried this out on my husband and he loved it. This recipe is simple, quick and very filling.
bread, cubed (i used whole grain white)
deli ham (i used honey ham)
salt & pepper (to taste)
shredded cheddar cheese
sour cream, garnish (optional)
1Preheat oven to 350 degrees. On the stove, preheat a cast iron skillet to medium heat.
2Cut bread into cubes, leaving the crust on. Also, chop deli ham into small pieces. Set both aside.
3In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, and spices. Set aside.
4Melt 3 tbsp. of butter in the skillet and add the cubed bread. Gently toss with spoon until bread begins to brown and becomes crispy, about 5 minutes.
5Add last tbsp. of butter and chopped ham to skillet and cook for another 2-3 minutes until ham starts to sizzle.
6Pour egg mixture over bread and ham in skillet. Remove skillet from stove and place in oven.
7Bake in 350 degree oven for 12-13 minutes until eggs are firm in the center.
8Remove skillet from oven and sprinkle shredded cheese over the top. Return to oven and bake for another 3-4 minutes until cheese begins to bubble.
9Let cool for about 5 minutes. Cut into 8 slices and serve with a dollop of sour cream on top, if desired.
