Green Eggs and Ham Frittata

Happy New Years! I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and a safe New Years! We sure did! Over Christmas and New Years, we just loved our new little Tinsley to pieces and enjoyed being lazy! We enjoyed some excellent family time with my immediate family and TONS of great food!

I love using leftover holiday food and turning it into another scrumptious meal. That's exactly what I did with our leftover Christmas ham. I wanted to make a frittata and load it with lots of ham and cheese. And to bump up the nutrition, I added a bunch of chopped spinach. That's where the "green" comes in. I didn't actually use green eggs, but you already knew that.

Green Eggs and Ham Frittata

Green Eggs and Ham Frittata
     makes 6 wedges
Vegetable oil for skillet
1/2 red onion, diced
1 clove garlic
1 10oz box frozen chopped spinach, thawed
1/4 tsp grated nutmeg
1 1/2 C ham, cut into cubes
1/2 C shredded smoked cheddar cheese
12 eggs
Salt and pepper
1/2 C skim milk

Rub a 10 inch cast iron skillet or oven proof skillet with vegetable oil and preheat oven to 400 degrees. Heat skillet over medium heat and sauté onions and garlic. Drain spinach of excess water and add to skillet. Stir in nutmeg and heat everything through. Add in ham and heat through.

In a bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, salt and pepper. Pour egg mixture over spinach and ham mixture and stir together.

Add cheese to the top and gently stir cheese into egg mixture.

Bake for about 30 minutes or until eggs are completely set. The top of the frittata will rise slightly,

while the edges will slightly crisp up and get nice and golden brown.

This frittata is tall and dense. If you like a little smaller frittata, you could just 8 eggs and less milk. 


This is my first frittata on this blog using whole eggs instead of just egg whites. I've posted a few frittata recipes with egg whites only. Truth be told, I'm still getting used to eating egg yokes. I know. Time to grow up! Anyway, here are the egg white only frittata recipes if you want to check them out:
