A healthy and delicious frittata recipe!

Makes: 6 servings
Active Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes


  • 8 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons dried dill
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 leeks, white and light green parts only, diced
  • 1 5-ounce bag baby spinach, chopped
  • 1/2 cup diced ham
  • 1/2 cup shredded havarti or Muenster cheese


  1. Preheat to 450°F.
  2. Whisk eggs, dill, salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Heat oil in a large ovenproof nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add leeks; cook, stirring, until softened, about 4 minutes. Add spinach and ham; cook, stirring, until the spinach is wilted, about 1 minute.
  3. Pour the egg mixture over the vegetables and cook, lifting the edges of the frittata so uncooked egg can flow underneath, until the bottom is light golden, 2 to 3 minutes. Sprinkle cheese on top, transfer the pan to the oven and bake until the eggs are set, 6 to 8 minutes. Let rest for about 3 minutes before serving. Serve hot or cold.
