  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add potatoes and cook until tender but still firm, about 5 minutes. Drain and set aside to cool. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. In a cast iron skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add onions and cook slowly, stirring occasionally, until onions are soft.
  3. Stir in eggs, drained potatoes, ham, salt and pepper. Cook until eggs are firm on the bottom, about 5 minutes. Top frittata with shredded cheese and place in preheated oven until cheese is melted and eggs are completely firm, about 10 minutes.


  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

Used this as a base recipe. Used 4 egg whites, 4 eggs, turkey bacon, garlic, parsley,mushrooms,green onion, spices, cheddar cheese, 5 potatoes. Really tasty, easy and good.

I must be out of my mind. I have absolutely no reason to cook tonight as I have leftovers from yesterday's party and the kids are sleeping at friends. However, after over indulging yesterday, I ...

very good-i found that adding some worchestershire sauce to the eggs helped bring out the flavours.

I made a frittata once before using shredded potato, and it was a disaster. This turned out much better! I used sliced sandwich ham (it needed using up) and I also added some more seasoning. It ...

When sauting the onions, I added some fresh chopped broccoli and some chopped green bell peppers. Very good, easy to make and ohhhh so delicious. Will repeat this for sure!
