Fabulous Frittata

This was so good, I had to write it down!

(All measurements are approximate.)

1 tablespoon butter
2 1/2 cups roughly chopped oven-roasted new potatoes and carrots* (combined)
1/2 cup chopped onion (red or yellow)
1/2 cup cubed or chopped ham
1/2 cup frozen peas
1/2 cup frozen corn
7 or 8 eggs
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper

Melt butter in a 9 or 10-inch oven-proof skillet over medium heat. Cook onion in butter for a few minutes. Add potatoes and carrots, ham, peas, and corn (I like to put the frozen vegetables in a sieve and rinse them with cold running water first). Cook for a few more minutes, stirring frequently. Meanwhile, whisk together eggs, cheese, salt, and pepper. When the vegetables and ham are thoroughly heated through, pour egg mixture into the pan. Cook over medium heat for 6 to 8 minutes. Transfer skillet to preheated 350 degree oven and cook for another 8 to 10 minutes, until the centre is puffy and cooked through.

*Halve or quarter new potatoes and carrots. Toss with a little olive oil, salt, and fresh ground pepper. Roast in a shallow pan in 350 degree oven for about 30 minutes.

Variation: Use whatever vegetables you have on hand! That's what we did.
