My Mom’s apple & gruyere frittata has to be one of our family favorites now! It is soooo good, I had to learn how to make it! This is my go-to recipe for any bridal or baby shower brunches. Everyone loves it!
i’ll admit that I have never been a big breakfast eater. its always the meal that i don’t mind skipping (i know this isn’t healthy!!) it probably has to do with my love of sleeping in…but also because breakfast foods just aren’t my favorite. until now. when we were home last weekend, my mom taught me how to make this delicious and easy meal…and man was it a hit! pat, mr. subdued, really loved this meal and wants me to make it again and again! i know you will love it too.
the ingredients are totally customizable, although please please PLEASE try it with the apple. for some reason, this just really works. it adds such dimension to the dish. it isn’t an overwhelming addition, but trust me you should try it! i also really recommend the gruyere cheese. you should be able to find it at any grocery store, and it is delicious. soft and creamy and perfect with the ham and apple.
this recipe is VERY easy, but does have quite a few steps. hang in there with it, you won’t mess it up. and you will be so proud of yourself! one important step is pre-browning the hash browns. cook them until crispy and light brown on one side, and then flip and cook the other side. only flip once. detailed instructions for everything else are below in the recipe card :)
stay tuned for recipes for the pecan pie mini muffins, and aunt lily’s famous orange juice. the perfect breakfast combination! i just couldn’t wait to get this one up on the blog, it is so delicious!
