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.

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
This quick and easy frittata is great for brunch but is hearty enough for a tasty dinner. Packed with the garlic, onion, and mustard you taste those flavors in every bite. What I really loved was the butter toasted bread addition - so yummy. While the recipe calls for deli ham, I think this would be great with leftover baked ham too.

Ingredients

8 slice
bread, cubed (I used whole grain white)
4 Tbsp
butter, salted
8-10 slice
deli ham (I used honey ham)
8
large eggs
2 Tbsp
low-fat milk
1/2 tsp
garlic powder
1/4 tsp
onion powder
3/4 tsp
dry mustard
salt & pepper (to taste)
1 c
cheddar cheese, shredded
1 tsp
sour cream, garnish (optional)

Step-By-Step

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.
