Ingredients for servings

    Frittata with Ham & Green Peppers

  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter divided

  • 1 small onion chopped

  • 1 medium green bell pepper

  • 0.5 tsp salt

  • 0.5 tsp black pepper

  • 8 slices ham chopped (certified gluten-free if necessary)

  • 8 large eggs at room temperature

  • 0.25 cup water

  • 0.5 cup shredded cheddar cheese optional


  • Melt 1 tablespoon of the butter in a large (12-inch) nonstick skillet over low heat. Add the onion, bell pepper, 0.25 teaspoon of the salt and 0.25 teaspoon of the pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until tender-crisp, 3 to 4 minutes. Stir in the ham and cook for 1 minute, stirring occasionally. Transfer to a plate.
  • Separate the eggs, placing the yolks in a medium-size bowl and the whites in a large bowl. Lightly beat the yolks with the water, the remaining 0.25 teaspoon salt and the remaining 0.25 teaspoon pepper. Beat the egg whites until they form stiff peaks. Fold the yolks into the whites.
  • Melt the remaining 1 tablespoon butter in the skillet over low heat. Pour in the eggs and spread them evenly with a rubber spatula. Scatter the ham mixture and cheese (if using) over the top, cover, and cook until the eggs are set, 25 to 30 minutes. Slide the frittata onto a plate and serve immediately (puffiness will subside in 5 to 7 minutes).
