  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 7 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 1 thick piece of cooked ham cut into 6 equally long pieces
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh chopped flat leaf parsley to garnish


  1. Preheat a large nonstick skillet on medium low for a few minutes. Break one egg into a bowl, add 1 tablespoon of milk, and beat with a fork until combined.
  2. Drop the butter into the preheated skillet and slide it around as it melts to coat the pan. The butter should bubble and melt quickly, but should not sizzle loudly. If it sizzles loudly, the pan is too hot- reduce the heat.
  3. Once the butter is melted and coats the skillet, drizzle the beaten egg/milk mixture all around the bottom of the skillet. It will not cover the entire bottom of the skillet, but will make a base for the next step. Don't stir or scrape the egg.
  4. Place the ham pieces on top of the drizzed egg, making sure that each piece evenly radiates out from the center of the skillet. It will form six equal sections in the pan.
  5. Working quickly, crack an egg into a measuring cup and slip it gently into a section. Repeat with all the remaining eggs. Sprinkle the frittata with salt and pepper.
  6. To keep the eggs very yellow, simply continue to let the frittata cook until the whites are solid, approximately 10 minutes (time will vary based on skillet and temperature). To cook faster (and to make the yolks more done, less runny), cover the skillet while the frittata cooks. If you cover the skillet, check it in 5 minutes to see if it's done.
  7. When the frittata is done, jerk the pan sharply to loosen the frittata, then slide it onto a large round serving plate. Garnish with parsley and serve immediately.
