What exactly is a frittata? I always thought it was like an omelet. When I went to cook this recipe I noticed the amount of milk compared to eggs seemed off for a traditional omelet or scrambled egg recipe. I Googled it and found that the definition of frittata is “an Italian egg dish made with fried beaten eggs, resembling a Spanish omelet.”
I ran across this recipe while I was home for Christmas. If you think I have a lot of recipes, you should see my mother’s house. One of the lessons I learned over the years was to get rid of recipes you will never make. This often means tearing recipes out of cookbooks and putting them in three ring binders. I also throw away recipes that I made and don’t love enough that I think I want to make them again. My mother refuses to do this so she has LOTS of recipe books. Two of her most recent purchases include Taste of Home and Simple & Delicious cookbooks. They were very colorful and filled with lots of great recipes. This is one I made while I was home for the holidays.
Spray eight muffin cups of a muffin pan. Put in ham and top with cheese. Beat together all remaining ingredients. Pour over ham and cheese. Bake at 375 degrees for 22-25 minutes.
- I felt like the eggs would have been better if I had used more milk.
- I used Egg Beaters Whites for the egg whites. Way easier and healthier for you.
- Be sure to spray the entire cup good with cooking spray or use silicon muffin cups. My recipe stuck a little more than I would have liked it to.
