One of my favorite things about this time of year is festive brunch gatherings. And Christmas morning brunch is especially magical. My mom is the queen of Christmas morning breakfast recipes. Every year we are totally spoiled with food on Christmas. From pancakes to muffins to sweet pastries there is never a shortage of yumminess!

This appropriately red and green Sun-Dried Tomato Pesto Ham Frittata will definitely be making an appearance this year! Utterly delicious, full of flavor and most importantly EASY. It’s even made in one pan!

All of the ingredients were bought ready-to-go, including the tasty spiral sliced smoked ham (but use any ham you have on hand). Ham is always a centerpiece on our holiday table, and it can also be a lovely addition to soups, salads, sandwiches and more. If you don’t have smoked ham, feel free to use a thick sliced deli ham.

Sun-Dried Tomato Pesto Ham Frittata for Christmas!

I can’t imagine a more satisfying and easy breakfast recipe. A hearty frittata is a favorite for anytime of the year, but also absolutely made for Christmas morning. It’s awesome, too, that there’s only one pan to clean up after all the food has been eaten. More time for opening the presents! Keep it simple. Keep it delicious. Make it your own. Just make it. Invite friends and family. Sit around the kitchen and enjoy!

I adore this frittata for a couple of reasons. First of all, it feeds a large group with ease. Secondly, it’s the perfect destination for your leftover ham and any other veggies you need to use up. Lastly, it’s totally appropriate to serve it for breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner and looks beautiful on a holiday buffet too!

Ingredients
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ cup chopped onion
