Ham and Cheddar Zucchini Frittata

Zucchini season is just about here and soon you will have so much in your garden you won’t know what to do with it all!  Even though it is just about time for an overabundance of zucchini, I LOVE eating it year round.  Zucchini is actually my favorite vegetable with broccoli as a close second.  There is always zucchini in my fridge!

I had way to many eggs, zucchini on hand, and ham that I decided to make a frittata!

Frittatas are one of my favorite breakfasts.  They really come together in no time at all and I love that you can fill them with some of your favorite things.  Cheese is a must of course and ham is one of my favorite things as well.

The great thing about this frittata is that it is filled with 2 cups of zucchini!!  You can use up 2 whole cups in this frittata and it is delicious.  I love the green specks inside of the frittata and it is just full of so much egg, ham, and cheese goodness.

Serves: 4-6
Ingredients
  • 2 cups zucchini (about 2 small size)
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 6 large eggs
  • ¼ cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup ham, chopped
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Using the larger side of a box grater, grate the zucchini. Using several paper towels, place the zucchini in the center and wring the zucchini to remove excess moisture. In an 8 inch cast iron skillet melt the butter. Add the zucchini and saute over medium heat until the moisture evaporates and zucchini is tender.
  2. In a medium bowl whisk the eggs and heavy cream. Stir in the ham, cheddar cheese, salt and pepper and add the zucchini.
  3. Pour the mixture into the skillet and bake for 20-25 minutes until it is set.

  1. Is there a substitute for the heavy cream?

    • Yes – it will not be as creamy – but you can substitute half and half or just plain whole milk.

    • I don’t normally have heavy cream in my frig. So, I was thinking of trying sour cream or maybe half sour cream and half low fat milk.

  2. Thanks for this terrific recipe! I love all things zucchini. I didn’t even have all the ingredients and it still turned out fantastic. I cooked 3 slices bacon in the cast iron pan, removed, and chopped. Using a bit of the bacon fat + butter, I then sauteed about 1 heaping cup (all I had) of zucchini. Otherwise followed recipe exactly and it was SO GOOD! Served for dinner with side salad. My 4 year old gobbled it up and ate leftovers for breakfast the next day. For those who may have a child like mine that has banned all green food, just peel the zucchini. I also use the middle grate size on my box grater instead of the large with most zucchini recipes, which seems to help make the zucchini even more undetectable 🙂
