Ham and Cheddar Zucchini Frittata is filled with two cups of zucchini, ham, and cheddar cheese. It has such amazing flavor and will be devoured in no time at all!
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.
This frittata is ready in just about 30 minutes and you are going to love all of the flavors inside. It makes the perfect balanced breakfast and you will want to make it again and again!
- 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
- 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.
- In a medium bowl whisk the eggs and heavy cream. Stir in the ham, cheddar cheese, salt and pepper and add the zucchini.
- Pour the mixture into the skillet and bake for 20-25 minutes until it is set.
