Bring It On! Oven-Baked Frittata

Competition in the HEB Meal Maker Challenge begins NOW! Looking forward to making some cool dishes.  The goal is to make a family-friendly meal in under 30 minutes with 7 ingredients or less.  I’m competing with 9 other excellent food bloggers and you get to vote for your favorite recipes.  Try out the dish, then PLEASE vote for me here >> VOTE.

Full disclosure: The kind folks at HEB & ConAgra have provided products and compensation to me so I can participate in this challenge. The recipes are my own. Best of all…any compensation I receive will be donated to Meals On Wheels And More.

I’ll be featuring 4 dishes over the next 4 weeks. Each week we use a tasty ingredient provided by HEB and ConAgra.

This week’s featured ingredient is Egg Beaters and we cooked up a good one.  A very tasty Oven-Baked Frittata.  Taste-tested by the ultimate judges:  Kids.  It got an A+.  Everybody loves it and it’s a great dish for any time of day (my family had it for dinner!)  Best of all it’s easy to make.

Here’s how you do it:

Ingredients:

1 Single Serve 4 -oz cup Egg Beaters
2 Eggs
8 oz. boneless ham steak (Diced into 1/4 inch pieces)
1 cup 2% shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1/4 cup fresh chives – diced
2/3 cup Half & Half

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Apply non-stick cooking spray to 9-inch oven safe pie dish.

Place the diced ham chunks into the bottom of the dish then place shredded cheese over the ham.  Next, add the chives.

Whisk the Egg Beaters and eggs for one minute. Add the Half & Half and whisk for an additional 30 seconds.

Pour egg mixture over the ham, cheese and chives. Bake on the top rack of the oven for 20 minutes. Test for doneness by inserting a knife in center of the frittata and remove. The blade should be moist but not dripping wet.  If it’s wet, bake for another 3 minutes.

Cut the pie into wedges and serve immediately.  Accompany with French baguette and apple slices.  Total prep time: 5 minutes.  Cooking time: 20 minutes.

Tasty. Hope you like it. We sure did!
