Ham, Potato, and Cheddar Frittata

Breakfast/brunch is one of my favorite meals of the day. Usually I don't wake up early enough to take full advantage of such a luxurious event and am relegated to a bowl of cereal at my desk, but MAN! is it great when I can indulge. Unfortunately, those times haven't really occurred recently due to my rather hectic schedule of interning and working the brunch shift at a restaurant—however, I wait with baited breathe for my morning feasts to return. I'm a much bigger fan of the savory side of life, so what better than meat, potatoes, and cheese?

That's what I thought.

  • 2 medium potatoes, peeled and diced
  • oil
  • salt
  • black pepper
  • garlic powder
  • 1 cup diced ham
  • 4 eggs
  • 4 Tbsps. half-and-half (can substitute milk)
  • 1/2 cup (or more) shredded cheddar cheese
  1. Preheat your oven to 450˚F.
  2. Fry the diced potatoes in a skillet with some oil. Season with salt, pepper, and garlic powder.
  3. When the potatoes are almost done, add in the ham to sauté with the spuds.
  4. Beat the eggs with the dairy (the half-and-half/milk helps tenderize the eggs) and add to the skillet.
  5. Sprinkle cheddar cheese on top and place in the oven for about 15 minutes.
  6. Remove from oven, cut into wedges, and serve.
