Ham & Bacon Frittata

Ham & Bacon Frittata 092115

A great one-dish meal that works for breakfast (we had already enjoyed the first half when I thought to take the picture!), lunch or dinner. Easy to make ahead if you want something quick and easy for later. Also a great way to use up leftovers (both the ham and cooked bacon, in this case). Here is my recipe — the beauty is that you can use whatever types and amounts meat and cheese you like for nearly endless variations.

Ham & Bacon Frittata

Ingredients:
2 tablespoons bacon fat (or butter)
1 cup diced ham
2 slices cooked bacon, cut into bite-sized pieces
10 eggs
1/4 cup heavy cream
Pepper to taste
3/4 cup shredded cheese

Directions:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Heat iron skillet to medium heat. Melt bacon fat or butter and add diced ham and bacon to warm and soften, stirring occasionally. In a mixing bowl combine eggs, heavy cream and pepper; beat well, until eggs are fully incorporated.

Distribute meat evenly in pan and gently add egg mixture. Cook for 4 minutes, until set. Sprinkle cheese evenly over eggs and transfer skillet to oven. Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until knife inserted near center comes out clean.

May be served hot, warmed, or at room temperature. Store leftovers in refrigerator until ready for use.
