  • 1
    Preheat oven to 200°C.

    In a 20cm non-stick, oven-proof frying pan, melt half the butter on medium. Cook ham for 4-5 minutes until beginning to brown. Remove from pan.

    In a large bowl, lightly whisk eggs and cream together. Season.

    Heat remaining butter in pan. Pour in egg mixture, stirring with a wooden spoon a little to loosen from base. Swirl around edges until starting to set. Scatter over parmesan then tomatoes, spinach, capsicum, ham, onion and dollops of ricotta.

    Bake for 8-10 minutes until just set and golden. Serve in wedges scattered with micro parsley and accompanied with mixed salad.

Notes

Serve with sour dough toast and crispy bacon if liked. Prepare your own char-grilled capsicum or use one purchased from the deli or in jars.
