Ham and Cheddar Frittata with Peppers and Parsley

Here’s a perfectly yummy frittata I created for Smithfield.com today to help use up those Holiday Leftovers! Be sure to pop over and say hi, would ya?

I LOVE egg dishes, it’s as if I could eat them morning, noon and night. There are so many nights when I don’t know what I am making for dinner that we’ll break out the eggs and whip up a delicious meal. Love it!

I decided to go with ham and cheddar for my frittata with some sauteed sweet peppers, onion and parsley on top. When I tell you this is tasty, believe me 🙂

Hope you enjoy!

Pretty basic line up of ingredients for this one 🙂

Saute your onions then add in your sweet peppers.

Stir in your ham and give this a sniff….it’s incredible 🙂

Crack 6 large lovely eggs….

Sprinkle with salt…

….a little pepper

….and a splash of milk 🙂

Give a nice whisk and pour into your hot skillet with the ham and peppers.

Sprinkle your parsley on top and let the eggs cook for a few minutes scraping sides of skillet to get cooking 🙂

Sprinkle with some shredded cheddar and now it’s ready to go under the broiler.

Make sure your skillet is oven proof before heading to the broiler 🙂

How fun is this? I love how the edges puff. When you remove the skillet from the oven, watch as they fall right back to normal 🙂

If you are like me, then you’ll break out the hot sauce and a nice glass of OJ 🙂
