A frittata is a flat Italian style omelette in which the ingredients are mixed into the eggs instead of being stuffed like a traditional omelette. The top layer is the creative, artistic finishing touch. I like to serve a gorgeous frittata by using vibrant colored vegetables. Like a traditional omelette, a frittata can be healthy, or not.
How to make a healthy frittata:
Use egg whites
Add healthy vegetables
Sprinkle in chia seeds
In this frittata, I wanted to use some beautiful prosciutto cotto. Prosciutto cotto is the highest quality Italian cooked ham with a smooth mild flavor. Perfectly paired with a gooey mozzarella or fontina on a panini, or in this case, baked into a frittata.
Prosciutto Cotto and Mozzarella Frittata
2 tbsp. milk
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella or fontina cheese
4 slices prosciutto cotto, chopped
1 small tomato sliced
2 tbsp. Oregano
2 tbsp. Parmesan cheese
Preheat oven 350 degrees.
In a small mixing bowl, beat eggs with a whisk.
Continue whisking while adding milk until egg turns pale yellow in color.
Add cheese and prosciutto cotto and stir.
Pour into a Pam coated 9″ round cake pan.
Top with sliced tomato, oregano, Parmesan, salt and pepper.
Bake 20-30 minutes or until the egg is cooked through and set.
