Ham & Cheese Sandwich Frittata

Lindsay Dougherty


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.
