Ha ha ha you’re a frittata ta ta

Irisa Raina 9


There really is no special story behind this recipe.

I love to do frittatas and quiches with left over ham and when you throw in lots of vegetables you just can’t go wrong.

I served this with a garden salad loaded with mixed greens, cherry tomatoes, red onions, fresh spinach & yellow bell pepper. I topped it with my “honey mustard salad dressing “ posted here on JAP.

What a perfect summer Sunday dinner!

How to Make Ha ha ha you’re a frittata ta ta


  1. Cut the ham into bite size pieces.
  2. Put the butter into a medium sautéing pan, and when it it’s all melted add the onions and sugar. Cook for about 10 minutes on a very low flame, stirring often.
  3. After that time, add the red peppers and cook for about 10 more minutes on low.
  4. Add a good helping of fresh ground pepper and the spinach to the onions and peppers.
  5. Cook this for only about 1 minute longer, all you’re looking to do is wilt the spinach. Turn the heat off and give it a few more cranks of pepper.
  6. In a bowl put the heavy cream, salt and the eggs and yolk and mix thoroughly.
  7. Lightly spray the pie pan.
  8. Put the hash browns on the bottom of the pan.
  9. Then do a layer of cheese “ ½ of the 2 cups “.
  10. Then add the ham, I do a couple of grinds of pepper on the ham but that is optional.
  11. Then add the onion mixture.
  12. Add the rest of the cheese.
  13. And then pour the egg custard over the top and put the pie pan on the lined cookie sheet and bake at 35o for 45 minutes after that amount of time cover the frittata loosely with foil and bake for an additional 15 minutes.
  14. Bake till the top is beautifully browned. Let this rest for about 10 – 15 minutes before cutting to set the custard.
  15. Baking times will depend on your oven…so you’ll have to adjust the time and temperature accordingly.
