Frittata With Ham and Roasted Pepper
This recipe comes from Coup de Pouce, issue February 2008. I'm posting it for ZWT 4 Italy.
- Ready In:
- 5 eggs
- 1⁄2 cup milk or 1/2 cup half-and-half cream
- 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
- 1 cup crouton
- 1⁄4 cup ham, chopped
- 1⁄2 cup fontina or 1/2 cup provolone cheese, grated
- 1⁄4 cup roasted red pepper, drained and chopped
- 1⁄4 cup green onion, finely chopped (green part only)
- In a bowl, with a whisk, whisk eggs, milk and Dijon mustard. Add croutons, ham and half the cheese, half bell peppers and half green onions. Pour the mixture of eggs in a greased pie plate of 9 inches or an 8 inches greased square pan. Sprinkle with remaining cheese, bell pepper and green onion.
- Cook in a preheated oven of 350 F for about 20 minutes or until the frittata is golden and the eggs are set. Keep cooking under the preheated grill for about 2 minutes or until frittata is golden and is lightly puffed. Put the pan on a rack and let cool for 5 minutes. Use a spatula to loosen the edges from the pan and cut in wedges.

Does the recipe call for roasted red peppers, or bell as later referenced? Both probably work, but I think the distinct flavor of the roasted, combined with (absolutely prepared Dijon rather than dry mustard - again completely varying flavors - are fantastic compliments BUT none carries this dish over the edge of greatness as the grated PECORINO, as opposed to soft, and mildly flavored provolone which does nothing for flavor, but make for a fun melty texture (given that fontina is given as the alternate, and has yet another very distinct and strong powerful flavor and odor haha I dont see provolone as it's runner up-it is only comparable to a mozzarella anyway even milder in flavor) But a finely grated good quality pecorino Romano has true elitist status whence perfecting a truly superb recipe - it just brings it all together oh so perfectly! Now, these "tweaks" worked out so well, I am convinced they were the original recipe long ago lost in translation? Oh, the horror!!1Reply
Your pictures look soo delicious. OMG! Your frittata will save me so much time. My husband and the kids love this kind of dish but i had't got the time. The green onion surely will add to the overall taste. I also think to substitute the mustard with dry mustard as @puppitypup suggests. Great recipe, once again!1Reply
