Crispy Prosciutto and Scallion Frittata


Cook time: 10 Minutes

Total time: 30 Minutes

Yield: 4



  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 6 scallions (white and light green parts) thinly sliced on the diagonal
  • 4 ounces thinly sliced prosciutto torn into 1-inch pieces
  • 8 large eggs
  • 3 tablespoons whole milk
  • 1/2 cup (2 ounces) grated Parmesan
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 cups arugula (about 2 bunches)
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 4 ounces goat cheese crumbled


  1. Heat oven to 350° F. Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large ovenproof nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the scallions and cook, stirring, for 1 1/2 minutes. Add the prosciutto and cook, stirring occasionally, until slightly crisp, 3 to 4 minutes. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, Parmesan, and pepper. Add the cooked scallions and prosciutto. Pour the egg mixture into the skillet and stir to distribute the ingredients. Bake until browned around the edges and puffed (a knife should come out clean when inserted into the center), 15 to 20 minutes. Meanwhile, divide the arugula among individual plates. Drizzle with the remaining olive oil, sprinkle with the salt, and top with the goat cheese. Cut the frittata into triangles and serve with the salad.
