Crispy Ham and Shallot Frittata




We obviously like eggs considering this is the third egg post in a row!  They are so versatile and easy for any meal.  In this recipe I used a mixture of cheese that I had on hand, Monterey Jack and Pecorino Romano.  Use whatever cheese you prefer.

Ingredients for 2 servings:
  • 4 eggs, 2 yolks removed
  • 1/4 lb of ham, cubed (I used Whole Food's deli black forest ham but bacon with the fat rendered and discarded would be great too)
  • 1 large shallot, thinly sliced
  • 1 tsp butter
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1/3 cup of shredded cheese
  • salt and pepper to taste
Directions:
  1. Heat a pan to medium with butter and olive oil.  Add the shallot and cook for 5-10 minutes, until they are just browning. Remove and sets aside.
  2. Add the ham and cook for 10 minutes, it will be done when the ham appears browned and slightly crispy.
  3. In a bowl add the eggs, ham, cheese and shallot, reserve enough cheese to sprinkle on top.  Stir to combine.
  4. Add the egg mixture to the pan, slowly swirl until it is cooked on the bottom side and slightly runny on top.  Sprinkle remaining cheese on top and place under the broiler for 2-3 minutes, until the cheese is browned.
  5. I served this with roasted garlic broccoli.
