A frittata is an egg-based dish which includes other great additions like meat and vegetables. This frittata features delicious ham, spinach, garlic, and spices to make it a one dish, yet memorable meal!
A frittata makes one of our favorite simple recipes that we love as much for breakfast or brunch as we do for a light supper. So, when Smithfield asked me to use their Smithfield Signature Spiral Sliced Ham in a leftover makeover recipe, I knew just what I’d make! This frittata! So easy to pull together, a frittata makes an elegant dish to serve when entertaining guests for the weekend. Knowing that Easter is just right around the corner followed by a season of showers, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and so many other special occasions, I just knew this frittata recipe would be one you’d want to include in your arsenal of simple recipes!
I love the ease of this frittata recipe in that you can quickly whip together your eggs and milk, toss in your leftover ham that you’ve diced, add in a package of spinach you’ve thawed and drained, and the stir in a few more items, pour it into a skillet, toss it into a preheated oven and in a few minutes you have a glorious meal that everyone will love!
Packed with protein, it sure would be great to wake your family up to this for breakfast with a side of fresh fruit and juice to kick off their day in a wonderful way. As amazing as this frittata is for breakfast, it would be just a fabulous served for a quick supper later in the week.
