Asparagus Ham and Potato Fritatta

Asparagus, Ham & Potato Fritatta
  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 60 minutes
  • Total Time: 1 hour 10 minutes
  • Yield: 8


  • 2 red potatoes
  • 7 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1/4 cup milk or cream
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 cup tablespoons onions, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, chopped
  • 1/3 cup asparagus
  • 1/2 cup ham, cut into chunks
  • 1/4 cup havarti, gruyere, or white cheddar cheese, cut into chunks
  • fresh ground pepper
  • fresh chopped parsley


Pierce potatoes with a fork and cook in microwave for 3-4 minutes, or just until tender. Remove and cut into bite-sized chunks.

In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, flour, milk, and salt. Set aside.
Place a Good Cook 10-inch skillet or cast iron skillet on a large stove burner. Turn heat to medium.
Melt butter in the skillet, add onions, garlic, and chopped potatoes. Cook until the onions are caramelized and slightly golden brown.
Pour the egg mixture into the skillet. Sprinkle asparagus, ham, and cheese chunks around the skillet. Sprinkle with fresh-ground pepper. Immediately turn the heat to low. Cover skillet with a lid (or a large plate). Doing so will allow the frittata to cook evenly through the center, without burning on the bottom. Leave covered and allow to cook over low heat for 10-12 minutes, or until the center of the frittata is set. Remove from heat and allow to set for 1-2 minutes before slicing and serving. Garnish with fresh chopped parsley, if desired.

Holiday Breakfast Casserole: Easy, Cheesy Sausage and Potato Bake

How to Make a Christmas Breakfast Casserole
Breakfast is such a special time of the day in our house on holidays and weekends.

Throughout the week, the mornings are rushed. Everyone grabs a bowl of cereal or microwaves themselves some oatmeal. If we’re really lucky, there might be a leftover muffin or two to devour. Weekday breakfasts are hurried, as we’re all getting ready for work and school. 

Weekends, however, are perfect for a hearty breakfast. Something hot and filling, full of protein and maybe some veggies, served to a table full of family dressed in pajamas. It doesn’t get much better than that, does it? 

Of course, just because I like to serve a big breakfast on weekends and holidays, this doesn’t mean that I like to spend my entire morning cooking. No, weekends are my lazy time. 

Cheesy potatoes and spicy sausage make this easy breakfast casserole a family favorite!

Enter this simple sausage and potato breakfast casserole. With a short list of ingredients and minimal prep time, it’s the perfect option for a family breakfast. 

I keep this extra easy by using a well seasoned sausage. My family loves the “hot” breakfast sausage, but mild will work as well. You might consider trying the maple sausage as well, for a sweet and salty twist to this recipe. 

I also keep the prep work to a minimum by starting with a bag of frozen hash browns mixed with peppers and onions. Most brands call these potatoes O’Brien and they’re a great way to cut time in the kitchen. No need to chop your own veggies and dirty extra dishes here! 

Everything bakes up hot and bubbly, oozing with cheese and bursting with flavor, in a Good Cook AirPerfect 9×13 Baking Dish. This heavy-gauge nonstick pan is my favorite – it’s so versatile and goes from breakfast casserole to brownies in the blink of an eye. Not that you’ll be needing brownies anytime soon after munching on this filling breakfast! 

This is especially good on Christmas morning. At my house, the kids get lots of candy in their stockings, so serving something hearty and savory like this breakfast casserole is a must to keep them from having too much sugar first thing in the morning.

These ham and cheese quiche cups are perfect for a quick healthy on the go breakfast!

I’ve been on a mission lately! A mission to feed my kids healthy, protein packed, homemade goodness for breakfast.

You see, we’ve been a cold cereal family for a long time and the guilt has finally gotten to be too much for me. I cook for a living! I should be providing my kids something warm and nourishing in the morning, right?

Well, they mostly disagree, because they love that sugary cereal. Then I came at them with these little handheld cups of ham, cheese, potatoes, and eggs and they saw the light!

Breakfast doesn’t have to take forever to make and it can be fun to eat.

These ham and cheese quiche cups are perfect for a quick healthy on the go breakfast!

I made a dozen of these quiche cups for our family and just stored the leftovers in a dish in the fridge. The kids have been popping them in the microwave for a quick breakfast each morning, but I’m noticing that they’re even warming them up for an afternoon snack.

They really are filling with all of the protein from the ham and eggs, the carbs in the crispy potato crust will give them energy to start their day, and the cheese just brings it all together and adds a great flavor!

We used the Good Cook muffin tin for these and, while I did spray the tin down with some non-stick cooking spray, I am happy to report that none of the quiche cups stuck in the muffin wells! Success!

These ham and cheese quiche cups are perfect for a quick healthy on the go breakfast!

We thought these were much better than a full sized quiche, because they’re portable and every kid (and, yeah, me!) loves eating with their hands. Who has time for utensils on a busy morning? Not to mention, less dishes is always a winning factor!

Please don’t be limited to the ham and cheese variation you’re seeing here, though! Get creative and have a little fun with these guys. Bacon and sausage are obvious choices, but what about leftover taco meat? Add in some pepper jack cheese and a little onion and you could have a fiesta for breakfast!

You can skip the meat and load these up with veggies as well. Spinach, bell peppers, leftover green beans, really anything goes!

So, tell me! Which flavor combination are you going to try first?

Ham & Cheese Mini Quiche Cups

These easy quiche cups are perfect for a grab and go breakfast!

  • Prep Time: 10
  • Cook Time: 15
  • Total Time: 25 minutes


  • 2 cups refrigerated hash browns
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 1/4 cup sweet onion
  • 1/2 cup diced ham
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 6 eggs
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup cheddar cheese
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper


Preheat oven to 375ºF. Spray a 12-cup muffin tin liberally with non-stick cooking spray. In a medium bowl, combine the hash browns and flour. Press the hash browns evenly between 10 muffin wells to form the crust. Bake for 15 minutes or until the edges are beginning to brown. While the hash browns are baking, dice the onion. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the olive oil. When the oil is hot, add the onions and cook 5 minutes, stirring often, until softened. In a medium bowl, beat together the eggs and milk until frothy. Stir in ham and cheese, salt and pepper. Add in the onion. Remove the hash browns from the oven and pour the egg mixture evenly into each muffin well lined with hash browns. Return to the oven for 15-17 minutes or until the quiche has set and the top is still a little moist looking. Run a butter knife around the edges of each quiche to loosen and remove to a plate. Serve warm or at room temperature.
