1 frittata


  • 10 large eggs

  • 1 ½ cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese

  • ½ cup finely grated Pecorino Romano or Parmesan cheese

  • 4 - 6 thin slices smoked ham, torn into pieces

  • 2 tablespoon butter

  • 2 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1 large spring onion or 4 green onions, sliced into thin rounds

  • 10 ounce mixed baby greens, such as chard, kale, and/or spinach


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. In a large bowl whisk together eggs, cheeses, ham, and 1/4 tsp. black pepper. In an oven-going 10-inch skillet heat 1 Tbsp. butter and 1 Tbsp. oil over medium heat until butter is melted. Add onion; cook and stir 2 minutes or until tender. Gradually add greens; cook and toss 2 minutes or until wilted. Transfer to a colander to drain, pressing out excess liquid. Stir greens into eggs.

  2. In the same skillet, heat remaining butter and oil over medium heat until butter is melted. Pour in egg mixture. Bake 20 minutes or until slightly puffed and set. Remove; let cool 10 minutes before serving.
