ham & onion frittata

Try this for brunch. It's simple and full of flavor. Extra bonus --- minimal clean-up because you only need to use one bowl and one skillet.

ham & onion frittata
1 1/2 cups cooked ham, cubed
1 onion, chopped
3/4 stick butter
9 large eggs
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
1 cup Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup shredded cheddar/jack cheese
12 ounces ricotta cheese

Melt butter in a large cast iron skillet or an oven-proof non-stick skillet on your stove top. Add chopped onions to the pan and saute until softened. Add ham, salt & pepper and continue to saute until onions and ham just start to brown slightly.

Beat eggs in a large bowl. Whisk in 3/4 cup of the Parmesan, all of the cheddar/jack, and all of the ricotta. Leave some clumps of ricotta. Add the egg & cheese mixture to the skillet. As the egg begins to cook, mix the onion and ham into the egg so it becomes evenly distributed and not all sitting at the bottom of the skillet. Cook on the stove top until the edges are just set (about 10 minutes).

Transfer to the over and bake frittata in the skillet at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes. Let cool about 10 minutes. Serve warm.
