Ham, Cheese and Hash Brown Frittata Recipe

The great thing about a frittata is that the basic recipe is very flexible.  You can use just about anything you have in the fridge and it will taste delicious.

I mixed things up a little for the frittata pictured here.  

What I did to vary from the basic recipe was to tear up a leftover whole-wheat hamburger bun into little pieces and spread at the bottom of the pan.  

I used turkey sausage crumbles and french fries instead of hash browns. (I almost always have the frozen “Potatoes O’Brien” on hand, these are the hash browns with peppers and onions, but not today)  

I also had some ricotta to use up, so I whipped it into the eggs.  (That’s what the white stuff on top is – I guess I didn’t whip it good enough, lol.)

Turned out beautifully… (even if the photos didn’t, lol!)

  1. This was exactly what I was looking for with the ingredients I had on hand. It tasted great. Thanks!

  2. could I use dehydrated hash browns, after rehydrating them in this recipe?

      1. Thanks for your reply, I will give it a shot!

  3. In my 10 inch cast iron pan, I sautés the onions, then add some bacon, fresh mushrooms, green pepper and whatever strikes my fancy at the time. Then go ahead with the hash browns (I used 2 1/2 cups) and spread the cheese over that mixture and pour the egg/milk over the whole thing. One pan, pop it right into the over and it comes out perfect every time. Thanks for this recipe, it is excellent.

  4. This is so easy and so good! I used 1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar and 1/2 cup parmesan. Sausage instead of ham. Wow! Try this!

  5. Yum yum yum! I made this for dinner tonight and it was delicious. Thanks! Found from meal menu Monday I think. Thank you,
