    2 tablespoons butter
    1 small onion, chopped
    1 green bell pepper, chopped
    ½ teaspoon salt
    ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
    8 slices (6 ounces) ham, chopped
    8 large eggs, at room temperature
    ¼ cup water
    ½ cup (2 ounces) shredded Cheddar (optional)


    1. Melt 1 tablespoon of the butter in a large nonstick skillet over low heat. Add the onion, bell pepper, ¼ teaspoon of the salt, and ¼ teaspoon of the black pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are crisp-tender, 3 to 4 minutes. Stir in the ham and cook, stirring occasionally, for 1 minute. Transfer the ham mixture to a plate.
    2. Separate the eggs, placing the yolks in a medium-size bowl and the whites in a large bowl. Whisk the yolks with the water and remaining ¼ teaspoon of salt and ¼ teaspoon of pepper. Beat the egg whites with an electric mixer, until they form stiff, but not dry, peaks. Fold the yolks into the whites.
    3. Melt the remaining 1 tablespoon of butter in the skillet over low heat. Pour in the eggs and spread them evenly with a rubber spatula. Scatter the ham mixture and cheese (if using) over the eggs, cover, and cook until the eggs are set, 25 to 30 minutes.
    4. Slide the frittata onto a plate and serve it immediately. (Puffiness will subside in 5 to 7 minutes.)
