INGREDIENTS

  • 1 tablespoon Unsalted Butter Stick
  • 2 tbsp chopped Onions
  • 1/2 medium (approx 2-3/4" long, 2-1/2" dia) Sweet Red Peppers
  • 8 oz, boneless, cooked Fresh Ham
  • 3 tbsp Parsley
  • 9 large Egg (Whole)
  • 1/4 cup Heavy Cream
  • 1/4 cup Tap Water
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Italian Seasoning
  • 1 cup, shredded Swiss Cheese

DIRECTIONS

  1. Heat broiler.
  2. Melt butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat; add white onion, diced pepper, cubed ham and half the parsley. Cook 5 minutes, until onion is softened.
  3. Combine eggs, cream, water, salt, Italian seasoning and half the cheese.
  4. Add egg mixture to pan. Cook, stirring constantly, until the eggs form soft, creamy small curds, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat; sprinkle remaining cheese over top of eggs.
  5. Place skillet under broiler; cook until cheese is bubbly and golden, about 3 minutes. Cool slightly. 
  6. To remove frittata whole, tip skillet to one side and use a spatula to loosen edges. Slide onto a serving platter; top with remaining parsley.
