Spinach Ham and Cheddar Fritatta

Remember those Oven Roasted Home Fries from Wednesday? If you read my post you will remember I said I always serve my eggs with home fries or home fries with eggs. 
Nothing looks more elegant than a fritatta on the breakfast table. This Italian-style omelette called a frittata, is a simple, delightful egg dish for brunch or a light dinner. This has minimal ingredients and is ready in under 20 minutes! 

This is my go to breakfast almost every Sunday morning. You can pretty much add anything but the kitchen sink and it will still come out amazing. My kids love it which is a plus. I always include some type of vegetable. You cant go wrong with veggies, ham and cheese tucked inside the fluffiest eggs. My favorite version is this one 

Did you know you can totally freeze this as well? Freeze it whole or you can slice it up or slice it into squares and even make breakfast sandwiches on english muffins with them. Just wrap them up and freeze. Food is just so much more fun with so many possibilities!

1 tablespoon olive oil

9 large eggs

1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

1 teaspoon baking powder

kosher salt and black pepper

1 10-ounce package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed of excess liquid

1 cup Cheddar, grated

4 slices deli ham, chopped

Heat oven to 400° F. 

In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, dijon mustard, baking powder, salt and pepper. Mix in the spinach, cheddar, and ham.

Add the olive oil to a large skillet swirl to coat. Add the egg mixture to the skillet, stir once, and transfer the skillet to oven. Cook until the eggs are set, 12 to 14 minutes.
