One part open-faced ham-and-cheese omelet and two parts crustless quiche Lorraine, this frittata combines Canadian bacon with sautéed shallots, Gruyère cheese, and a bit of thyme for a dish that’s equally appropriate for breakfast or for a light dinner.
What to buy: Canadian bacon is often sold in 6- or 8-ounce packages. We made this frittata with both amounts and found it delicious either way.
Game plan: A frittata goes well beyond breakfast—try it between slices of toasted baguette for lunch or paired with a green salad for dinner.
