Leftover ham pairs great with eggs. An elegant way to serve eggs for dinner is in the form of a frittata. Besides ham, this hearty frittata is filled with potatoes, cheese, and caramelized onions. A generous sprinkle of finely grated parmesan cheese adds a rich finish to the baked frittata. With a glass of chilled white wine and a crisp green salad, you can have a wonderful meal in no time.

8 extra-large eggs
2 tablespoons heavy cream
1 cup grated Gruyere cheese
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
