Fool-Proof Ham and Feta Cheese Frittata

Frittata. It's the Italian man's omelet. Perfect for breakfast, brunch or lunch. Frittatas are healthy, filling and easy to make. Once you learn the technique, you can basically use ingredients you have on hand to make a delicious meal. Leftovers are great for dinner too!
8 eggs
1/4 cup of milk
1/2 cup of diced cooked ham from the deli
1/4 cup of crumbled feta cheese, plus 1 tablespoon for garnish
1 tablespoon of chopped thyme
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1/2 teaspoon of pepper
1/2 tablespoon of butter
Handful of chopped parsley for garnish
Kitchen Essentials:
10'' nonstick pan
Oven mitts
Mixing bowl
Measuring cups and spoons
Cutting board
Butter knife
Spatula or wooden spoon
Serving platter
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Chop the ham into small 1/2 inch cubes. Chop the herbs.
Crack and whisk the eggs in a bowl for 30 seconds to incorporate air, which results in a fluffier frittata. Add the milk, thyme, ham, feta cheese, salt and pepper into the eggs.
Heat the butter in a non-stick pan over medium heat. Swirl the pan around to fully coat with butter. Pour the mixture into the pan. Scrap the mixture out of the bowl with a spatula and evenly distribute the ham and cheese throughout the pan. Allow the frittata to cook for the next 5-7 minutes. Resist the urge to mix, whisk, scramble, or stir. Watch as the edges of the frittata bubble and brown and listen the hissing sound of the air bubbles.
Once you can lift the edge of the frittata with a butter knife, place the pan in the middle rack of the oven. Cook for an additional 15-20 minutes. Don't forget to use your oven mitts to take the pan out of the oven! The handle will be extremely hot!
Garnish you golden beauty with fresh parsley and feta cheese crumbles. Slice and share the wealth of a healthy balanced meal with family and friends.
