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.

pinch tips: How to Poach an Egg


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

Directions Step-By-Step

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. On the stove, preheat a cast iron skillet to medium heat.
Cut bread into cubes, leaving the crust on. Also, chop deli ham into small pieces. Set both aside.
In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, and spices. Set aside.
Melt 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.
Add last tbsp. of butter and chopped ham to skillet and cook for another 2-3 minutes until ham starts to sizzle.
Pour egg mixture over bread and ham in skillet. Remove skillet from stove and place in oven.
Bake in 350 degree oven for 12-13 minutes until eggs are firm in the center.
Remove 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.
Let cool for about 5 minutes. Cut into 8 slices and serve with a dollop of sour cream on top, if desired.

I must say, YUM! I did a half batch of this, and I just have to say that it is impossible to screw this up! I did add a little Mrs Dash to it, but that was it. I cubed up the bread (4 slices) and plopped a glass pie plate in the oven while I crisped up the bread in my electric skillet. Added only 1 piece of ham, it was all I had, then by the time that was ready to go, the plate was heated, threw it into the pie plate and put the eggs on top (may add one more next time). I pushed the bread down to kind of get the eggs to soak in and baked it for 13 min. Then put about a half cup of shredded cheese on top, turned off the oven and put it back in to let the cheese melt. Yum! I didn't know it would turn out as well as it did because I did not have a cast iron skillet but it was great! Thanks!!!

I did make it again this morning... now I am getting addicted... and used3 pieces of bacon and did add additional eggs to it...so total of 6 eggs for the half batch of bread worked out well and 1/4 tsp of the Mrs Dash worked out great... just in case someone is wondering on amounts for a smaller batch.
