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.

Ham, Gruyere and Caramelized Onion Frittata


  1. 8 extra-large eggs
  2. 2 tablespoons heavy cream
  3. 1 cup grated Gruyere cheese
  4. Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  5. 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  6. 1 small onion, diced
  7. 4 small red potatoes, diced
  8. 1 cup diced smoked ham or Canadian bacon
  9. 1 cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano, for finishing top
  10. 1/4 cup sour cream
  11. 1 bunch chives, chopped


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, cream, Gruyere cheese, salt, and pepper until foamy.
  3. Melt butter in a cast iron pan over medium heat.
  4. Add the onion and potatoes and cook thoroughly.
  5. Pour the egg mixture over the top. Pull the edges away from the sides of the pan with a spatula so the eggs flow to the bottom of the pan. When the frittata is half set, add the ham.
  6. Transfer the pan to the heated oven. Bake for 10 minutes until puffed and golden.
  7. Shower with grated Parmesan and serve garnished with sour cream and chives.

Serves 4-6.
