Ham & Cheese Frittata



Serves 6.


  • 1 cup diced fully cooked ham
  • 1/2 cup diced sweet red pepper or green pepper
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 6 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 3/4 cup cottage cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 plum tomatoes, sliced
  • 1/4 cup shredded Cheddar cheese


  1. In a large ovenproof skillet coated with nonstick cooking spray, saute the ham, red pepper and onion until ham is lightly browned and vegetables are tender.
  2. In a bowl, combine the eggs, cottage cheese and pepper; pour over ham mixture. As eggs set, lift edges, letting uncooked portion flow underneath. When the eggs are almost set, broil 4-6 in. from the heat for 1 minute or until top is set. Top with tomatoes and cheddar cheese. Broil 1 minute longer or until cheese is melted.
