4 servings


1 tbsp (15 ml) butter
3/4 cup (175 ml) mushrooms, sliced
2 green onions, finely chopped
3/4 cup (175 ml) broccoli florets, small pieces
1/2 cup (125 ml) sweet red pepper, diced
5 oz (150 g) cooked ham, diced
8 (large) eggs
1/4 cup (60 ml) milk
1 tsp (5 ml) each salt and pepper, approximately
1/2 tsp (2 ml) Italian seasoning blend
1 1/2 cups (375 ml) Canadian cheddar cheese, shredded
1/2 cup (125 ml) chunky salsa


  1. Pre-heat oven to 375 F (190 C).
  2. In a large skillet melt butter. Sauté mushrooms, green onions, broccoli, and red pepper until tender. Add ham, cook for another 3 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
  3. In a bowl beat eggs, milk, salt and pepper, and Italian seasoning until foamy. Stir in 1 cup of the cheese, the salsa and the sautéed mushroom mixture.
  4. Pour into a lightly buttered 12 inch (30 cm) shallow oven proof baking dish. Sprinkle with the remaining 1/2 cup of cheese. Bake at 375 F (190 C) for 25 to 30 minutes or until a knife you insert in the middle of the frittata comes out clean.
  5. Remove from oven and let rest for a few minutes. Loosen the frittata away from the edges of the baking dish. Turn out onto a serving dish and cut into desired pieces. Serve with a light salad, more salsa and a glass of cold milk.
