Country Frittata with Ham, Cheddar and Basil

Serves 4-6



1 tsp. extra-virgin olive oil

1/2 red onion, finely chopped

1/2 cup diced, cooked ham

6 fresh basil leaves

Salt and pepper

6 eggs

1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese



Preheat oven to 350 degrees.


Gently whisk eggs in a medium bowl and set aside. Chiffonade basil and set aside.


In a high-sided ovenproof pan, heat olive oil on medium. Once oil is hot, add chopped red onion and cook until soft, about 5 minutes. Add ham and cook for 1 minute. Add basil. Add salt and pepper to taste, and stir to combine.


Remove pan from heat and pour in whisked eggs. Place pan in the oven and bake for 12-14 minutes, or until the eggs are fully cooked. Remove from oven, loosen the sides with a knife and place whole frittata onto a cutting board or plate.
