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.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

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 we really loved was the butter toasted bread addition - so yummy. While the recipe calls for deli ham, this would be great with leftover baked ham too. The Test Kitchen

How to Make Ham & Cheese Sandwich Frittata

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. On the stove, preheat a cast iron skillet to medium heat.
  2. Cut bread into cubes, leaving the crust on. Also, chop deli ham into small pieces. Set both aside.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, and spices. Set aside.
  4. 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.
  5. Add last Tbsp of butter and chopped ham to skillet and cook for another 2-3 minutes until ham starts to sizzle.
  6. Pour egg mixture over bread and ham in skillet. Remove skillet from stove and place in oven.
  7. Bake in 350 degree oven for 12-13 minutes until eggs are firm in the center.
  8. 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.
  9. Let cool for about 5 minutes. Cut into 8 slices and serve with a dollop of sour cream on top, if desired.
