Ham and Potato Frittata Recipe
Easy and delicious, this hearty dish's been appreciated whenever I've served it...breakfast, lunch or dinner. Reheated or cold, the leftovers are also great! We—my husband, our 8-year-old daughter and I—live in a suburb. But our back windows look out at mountains, farms, horses and cows.
- 1 pound red potatoes, cooked and sliced
- 3 tablespoons butter, divided
- 1-1/2 cups thinly sliced fresh mushrooms

- 2 teaspoons minced fresh garlic

- In a 10-in. cast-iron or other ovenproof skillet, brown potatoes in 2 tablespoons butter over medium-high heat; remove and set aside.
- In the same skillet, saute the mushrooms, onion, red pepper and ham in remaining butter until vegetables are tender. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer; drain. Remove and set aside.
