There are certain flavors that I love putting together.  Peanut butter and chocolate (obviously!), lemon and blueberries, and my all time favorite is ham and cheddar cheese.  With an absolute abundance of fresh herbs in the garden right now, I decided to whip up a ham and cheddar frittata recipe with fresh herbs.  However, instead of doing a traditional frittata, I cooked it in an 11 x 7 pan in the oven which made it incredibly fast and easy.  I am all about fast and easy!  Keep reading for the recipe as well as some great info about an Eggland’s Best Eggs food photography contest and giveaway that you may want to enter!

A lot of the frittata recipes I see contain onions and vegetables.  That’s great, however, I find that those ingredients tend to make my final results a bit too ‘wet’ for my liking.  The fresh herbs, however, give this frittata squares recipe lots of flavor and a dash of color without adding to the moisture level of the final dish.

The types of herbs you choose to add to your frittata are totally up to you.  I have been planting and pruning herbs like crazy for the last few weeks.  They absolutely LOVE the cool spring temperatures and I have already dehydrated several batches to save for use this winter.  If you are a foodie, you really need to start growing your own herbs.  It will save you a ton of money at the grocery store and the flavor is so much better than the dried stuff!

I used a glass 11 x 7-inch pan to cook this frittata squares recipe.  It was the perfect size but if you don’t have one, you will have to play around with cooking times for a different size pan.  Basically, you want your frittata to be starting to brown on top and the center should not be jiggly anymore.  Once it is set and golden brown, you know it is cooked through.  I chose to line mine with parchment paper to make sure it came out nicely but as long as you grease the pan, I don’t think you need the paper.

  • 10 Egglands Best Eggs
  • 1/3 cup half and half
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 1/2 cups diced ham
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 TBSP olive oil
  • 3 to 4 TBSP fresh herbs, finely minced
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. In a saute pan, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Toss in the ham and garlic and saute on medium-high heat 3 to 4 minutes until heated through. Remove from heat.
  2. In a large bowl, beat the eggs and half and half. Salt and pepper as desired. Go light on the salt since the ham and cheddar will be salty.
  3. In a 11 x 7 greased, glass pan, layer the ham on the bottom, then the cheddar cheese, then the herbs. Pour the egg mixture over the tops and spread gently with a wooden spoon to mix.
  4. Bake in a 350 degree F oven for 30 to 35 minutes or until top is lightly browned and center is firm.
  5. Remove from the oven and let cool on a wire rack slightly before cutting and serving. Sprinkle with more herbs to serve.
