Broccoli & Cheddar Fritatta

Blogger was down yesterday but now that Blogger is back up, I can finally post my latest frittata: Broccoli, Cheddar & Ham.  I'm enjoying these fritattas for breakfast, lunch or an easy dinner. This one turned out good.

8 eggs
2 T olive oil
3 T water
1/2  small red onion, chopped
1 1/2 cups cooked broccoli florettes (frozen or fresh)
1 small garlic clove, minced (or 1/4 tsp. of garlic powder)
1/2 cup ham, cooked and diced
1/4 tsp. sea salt
ground black pepper to taste
1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese

Put oil in skillet and saute the onion, 3-5 minutes.  Add water and broccoli to the skillet, sprinkle with salt and pepper.  Cover and cook over med-high heat a few minutes until steamed soft. Remove the lid, add the garlic, and allow the liquid to cook off while the broccoli and garlic begins to lightly brown.

Meanwhile, whisk together the eggs. Add in the chopped ham, then pour mixture over the broccoli in the skillet. Reduce heat, cover, and cook several minutes until the edges start to firm and set, about 5-7 minutes. Sprinkle with cheddar. Then place the skillet in oven under broiler for 1-2 minutes.

(edges starting to set)

Serve with a toss salad or a fruit salad, and cheddar-garlic biscuits or crescent rolls.

I'm off this morning to two soccer games, followed by graduation at the university. My husband is giving the faculty speech and one of my former public speaking students is giving the student speech. Happily, I don't have to speak at all.


  1. Oh, my... now this one makes my mouth water... too bad my whole fam doesn't indulge in broccoli. May have to try this one anyway! Happy Saturday!

  2. I was / am going to say the same, it does look good and makes mine water as well. Hi Tamara nice to see you on this Saturday morning. Hope you both have a great Saturday.


Chime in.
