Happy Friday! This has been a busy and super productive week, but oh my goodness I’m ready for the weekend! If I could insert the raise-hand emoji and blow it up to poster size, that would be me.
A couple nights ago I wanted to make a quick and easy dinner using ingredients we (mostly) already had on hand. I quickly landed on a frittata in our cast iron skillet. And it was de-licious. And fool proof. Praise!
I shared it on Insta, but thought I’d hop on and share the recipe. It’s super easy, and both Adam and Adeline DEVOURED it. Seriously, Adeline was climbing up the couch and kept sticking her hand all over my plate to grab more! I picked the ham out since she hasn’t tried any meat yet, but she loves eggs so this bad boy had her name (or so she thought) written alllllll over it.
I combined several different recipes I saw on Pinterest since I couldn’t decide on a specific one. Frittatas are so versatile, you can really throw in anything and call it a day. I opted for a lighter recipe, including broccoli and ham as my main ingredients.
Here’s my full ingredient list:
- 10 eggs
- butter (1 tsp), salt, pepper, minced garlic (1 tsp)
- 1/2 cup diced ham
- 1/2 diced yellow onion
- 1 bag of chopped steamed broccoli
- 1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
First, in a separate skillet, I sautéed the onions in light butter, then added the diced ham and garlic, and kept it on low heat for maybe 5 minutes. While I did this, I steamed the broccoli in the microwave, also for 5 minutes. Once the broccoli was steamed, I mixed it in with the onions and ham.
I whisked the eggs, adding salt and pepper, and lastly the cheese. Then, I poured the broccoli mixture into the cast-iron skillet, then poured the egg mixture on top, using a spoon to spread the heavy pieces around evenly.
I baked it at 350 for about 20-25 minutes, then cut into slices and served alongside our favorite salsa.
It reheats super easily as well, and we ate it for breakfast yesterday morning and Adeline had it for dinner last night.
So this weekend our plans consist of: two photo shoots (two family mini sessions), hopefully we can both hit the gym at least once, and of course as many family dates as possible! I’ve got to work on planning our beach trip that’s coming up in about two weeks, ANNNNNDD Adeline’s first birthday is already in the works! WHAT THE WHAT! Insane, I know. I can’t believe I’m already thinking about how we want to celebrate her on October 22! I’ll be sharing her party theme and some decor ideas soon! In the meantime though, I’ve got Florida on my mind! Eeek! Just go ahead and prepare for beach baby photo overload times a million here in a few weeks!
Have a great weekend, ya’ll!
Have you made a good frittata lately? What did you use? What are you doing this weekend?
