Green Bean, Ham, and Cheese Frittata


2 teaspoons olive oil
1 pound green beans trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces
1/2 pound thinly sliced deli ham cut into thin strips
2 bunches (12 to 16) thin scallions cut into 1-inch pieces
8 large eggs
1 cup shredded (about 4 ounces) Fontina cheese
Coarse salt and ground pepper


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Heat oil in a 10-inch nonstick ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Add green beans, ham, and scallions (skillet will be full). Cover and cook, stirring occasionally until green beans are crisp-tender, about 6 minutes.

In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, cheese, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper; add to skillet, and tilt to distribute evenly. Gently press down on vegetables to cover them with egg mixture. Cook, without stirring, until edges are slightly set, about 1 minute.

Transfer to oven; bake until center is set, 25 to 30 minutes. Run a wooden or rubber spatula around edges; slide frittata onto a platter, and cut into 4 wedges.
