Spicy Chard & Ham Frittata

Spicy Chard & Ham Frittata


  • 1 bunch chard (rainbow or Swiss) 
  • 3 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • ⅓ lb thick-cut Two Brothers Canadian Bacon, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, sliced
  • ¼ tsp red pepper flakes
  • 8 eggs
  • ¼ lb Two Brothers Colby Caliente (1 large piece), shredded
  • ¾ tsp salt


  1. Heat oven to 400° F. Separate leaves and chard stems, roughly chopping both. In a 10-inch skillet, heat 1 tbsp olive oil on medium. Add Canadian Bacon and cook 4 minutes, stirring occasionally, to brown. Add garlic and red pepper flakes; cook 1 minute. Remove with a slotted spoon to a plate. 
  2. Add 1 tbsp olive oil and increase heat to medium-high. Add chard stems to pan; cook 5 minutes. Stir in chard leaves and cook until tender and water is absorbed, about 4 to 5 more minutes.
  3. While chard is cooking, whisk eggs in a bowl. Whisk in cheese, cooked bacon and salt.
  4. Once chard is cooked, reduce heat to medium. Add 1 tbsp olive olive and stir to coat pan. Pour in egg mixture and cook 2 minutes.
  5. Place skillet in oven and bake at 400° F for 12 to 15 minutes, until set. Rest 5 minutes, then loosen edges and bottom with a nonstick spatula. Transfer to plate and slice into wedges.
Heinen's Grocery Store

By Heinen's Grocery Store

In 1929, Joe Heinen opened the doors of a small butcher shop on the east side of Cleveland, Ohio, aiming to establish himself as the city’s purveyor of quality meats. As customers came into Heinen’s new shop for their meat purchases, they began asking him to carry groceries as well. Joe added homemade peanut butter, pickles and donuts and by 1933, business had grown enough to include a line of produce and canned goods. Heinen’s Grocery Store was born.
