Easter Frittata

Serves 15 Generously

24      Large Eggs

1        Lb. Whole Milk Ricotta, Drained

1        Lb. Italian Sausage, Cooked and Cut into Small Dice

1        Lb. Ham Steak, Cooked and Cut into Small Dice

1        Tablespoon XVOO

Preheat oven to 350º.

In a large bowl, gradually beat the eggs into the ricotta.  Beating two or three eggs at a time into the ricotta will keep the lumps away.  Add the sausage and the ham to the egg mixture and thoroughly combine.

Over medium low heat add the oil to a Non-Stick 10” skillet with 3” high sides.  Heat the oil until warm and add the frittata mixture to the pan.  With a heat-proof rubber spatula, gently begin pushing the sides of the frittata towards the center, flattening out the frittata as you go.  Do this over and over until the frittata begins to set, about 15 minutes.  After it is loosely set, transfer the frittata to the oven and bake until completely set and golden brown on top, about 20 – 30 minutes.

You will know it is done when a thinly bladed knife inserted into the center comes out clean.

Remove from oven and let rest in pan for 15 minutes.  Invert frittata to a serving platter.  Serve immediately or cool to room temperature before serving.  Either way is wonderful.


Happy Easter!!!!

    I should have added that we will be joining Wendy and her family and some new extended family, not for brunch, but for dinner. Looking forward to that.

    Hey, will be making the frittata tomorrow. Hope it turns out as good as last year. I will not put in the romano cheese but will add diced pork. Bonnie is finishing making the lamb cakes, nine this year, some for our new neighbors. Hope your Easter is fine, say hi to Jim.

    Well, I just put the frittata in the oven hopefully it will turn out as good as your’s and Aunt Mary’s. I have never made one without pork, parsley and tons of Romano cheese. I think the cheese turned off some people so this recipe might turn my grandchildren into frittata lovers. Bonnie is cleaning up from making the lamb cakes which have turned out perfectly. Brunch is at Gina’s tomorrow with enough people to have a football game,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,wrong season. Happy Easter to you and Jim.

    Love you
