Western Omelette Frittata has all the great flavor of a traditional Western Omelette but in a baked dish. It’s made ham. eggs, onions, bell peppers, cheese. There’s a small twist with hash browns that gives it more flavor.
Brunch is my favorite meal. Don’t get me wrong I have a strong affection for breakfast, lunch and dinner. However my heart will always belong to brunch.
One of my favorite parts of brunch are omelettes. Most mornings I don’t have a lot home time to make eggs for breakfast. So when we go out for brunch or even when I make breakfast for dinner omelettes are almost always on the table.
Recently I saw a recipe for a frittata on Pinterest that was made with ham and potatoes. That recipe inspired me to turn my favorite omelette into a frittata.
Begin by melting butter in an oven safe skillet. Once butter is melted cook potatoes until they are tender and then remove from heat.
In a large bowl, I used my largest mixing bowl, whisk together six eggs. Then add peppers, onions, ham, cheese, salt and pepper. Whisk until well combined.
Pour egg mixture over hash browns then sprinkle cheese over the top. Place in a 350º oven for 25 – 30 minutes. When the eggs are firm in the middle the frittata is done. I use the highly scientific method of wiggling the skillet from side to side. If nothing wiggles back it’s done.
