EASY BAKED FRITTATA
6 tbsp canola oil
4 cups frozen shredded hash brown potatoes, thawed
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp garlic salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1 lb fully cooked ham, cubed
12 whole eggs
6 tbsp low-fat milk
1/4 tsp dried oregano
1/4 tsp dried basil
2 cups shredded Mexican-blend cheese
1 1/2 cups your favorite chunky salsa
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large skillet, over medium heat, heat the canola oil. Add the hash brown potatoes. Sprinkle the potatoes with the garlic salt and the pepper. Cook for about 8 minutes until almost browned. Add the ham to the potatoes. Cook another couple of minutes, turning occasionally with a spatula.
Blend the eggs, milk, salt, oregano, and basil while the ham and potatoes are cooking.
Spray a 9 x 13-inch casserole dish with nonstick cooking spray. Place the potato mixture evenly in the casserole dish. Gently stir the egg mixture into the potato mixture. Bake, covered, for 15 minutes at 350 degrees. Remove from the oven and sprinkle the cheese over the top of the casserole. Return to the oven and bake for another 15 minutes or until the cheese has melted and the eggs are set.
Turn the oven to broil and cook for about 2 or 3 minutes until nicely browned. Watch carefully while the oven is on broil. Remove from oven and allow to cool for about 10 minutes before cutting. Cut into squares and place on serving plate.
Heat the salsa and serve spooned over the frittata.
