A healthy, satisfying cheesy baked potato frittata with ham. An easy, classic frittata recipe that's perfect for any meal and a great way to use leftovers.


  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil — divided
  • 1 cup chopped Yukon gold potato — (heaping) scrubbed, skin-on, approx. 1/2-inch diced (about 2 small potatoes)
  • 8 large eggs
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon  kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • ounces cooked ham — cut into 1/2-inch dice
  • 1/3 cup shredded gruyere — swiss, cheddar, or other similar, melty cheese
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives


  1. Place a rack in the center of your oven and preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large (12-inch) ovenproof skillet over medium low. Once the oil hot, add the potatoes, and cook for 8 to 10 minutes, until the potatoes are very tender and browned, stirring gently from time to time so that the potatoes cook evenly. With a slotted spoon, remove the potatoes to a plate and set aside.
  3. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, beat the eggs, Dijon, milk, salt, and pepper with a fork until well combined.
  4. Return the skillet to the heat over low and add the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil. Once the oil is warm, pour in the egg mixture, then sprinkle the reserved potatoes, ham, cheese, and chives over the top. Bake for 18-24 minutes, just until the eggs are set (the cooking time may vary based on your skillet, so keep an eye on it). Slice and serve immediately.
