Whip up a delicious breakfast for the one you love this Valentine’s Day with this easy frittata recipe.   Made with just a few simple ingredients you probably already have on hand, it takes only 20 minutes to make and is just the right size for two.  Switch up the veggies, cheese, and meat to your liking. Frittatas are completely customizable, just like your favorite omelet, but they’re much easier to make.


1 Tbs. butter

1/3 C. chopped red onions

2/3 C. hash browns, thawed

1/2 C. grated cheddar cheese

6 large eggs

1/4 C. heavy cream

1/4 tsp pepper

1/2 tsp salt

1 Tbs chives (or green onions), chopped

3-4 slices black forest deli ham

Sliced cherry tomatoes and fresh dill for garnish (optional)

Cooking Instructions:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. 

Place an 8 inch oven safe skillet on the stove top over medium heat.  Melt the butter and add the onion.  Cook until the onion begins to soften.

Add the hash browns and cook until golden brown. Flatten the hash browns down with a spatula and sprinkle the cheese over the top.  Allow cheese to melt. 

Place the eggs, cream, salt and pepper into a bowl and whisk to combine.  Pour the egg mixture into the skillet over the cheese.

Cook the frittata on the stove top for 2-3 minutes just until the edges start to set.  Top with the ham slices.  Transfer it to the oven and bake 10-12 minutes until the eggs are fully set. 

Remove from the oven and let the frittata cool five minutes before slicing it into wedges.

Serve as is or garnish with a little fresh dill and sliced tomatoes if desired. 

*Recipe easily doubles for four people, just double all ingredients and use a 10 or 12 inch skillet.
