Pre or Post Holiday Frittata
I don’t know about you, but right before and after a holiday (especially one centering on food), I have no desire to make dinner. But it comes around every day just the same, and people are hungry for it. So what’s a momma to do? Make a quick frittata of course!
When I think of egg dinners, I usually think of quiches, but frittatas are great in that they don’t require the crust of a quiche (although that is one of my favorite parts) or the time, but you still get most of the flavors. This combination is great for when you want a yummy meal but don’t want to work for it.
So if you are overwhelmed with turkey day prep or lethargic from the tryptophan, this dinner is sure to hit the spot.

1 cup of shredded cheese (I used cheddar)
2 cups of thawed frozen broccoli
1 cup of ham cubes
1 tablespoon butter
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt (or 1/2 teaspoon table salt)
1/4 teaspoon fresh cracked pepper
1/4 cup fresh parsley
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
Melt the butter in a large oven-safe skillet over medium heat. Add the ham cubes and thawed broccoli. Saute until broccoli is soft and warmed through.
In a separate bowl beat the eggs. Then mix with the cheese, salt, and pepper.
Pour the egg mixture over the broccoli and ham, stirring just to distribute the vegetables and meat evenly. Let it cook until almost set (about three minutes).
Sprinkle the parsley on top and put the whole skillet in the oven. Bake for about 5-6 minutes until egg is cooked through and puffy.
Slice, serve, and eat!
