Ham and Cheese Frittata

September 11, 2015

I love omelets. But one downfall about making omelets is that they are pretty labor-intensive. It requires the use of more than one pan as well. Typically I use two for omelets….one for the eggs and the other to saute vegetables or cook up some sausage.

But I do have my own series of litmus tests that any cookie recipe must go through before it is accepted in my house. This one definitely passed….and it is definitely far better than the…
