When looking for inspiration, browsing the Food and Drink board on Pinterest is one of my favourite things to do.

I came up with this recipe after seeing bacon-wrapped frittatas – which gave me the idea for this recipe.  I’ve used ham instead of bacon and I’ve added some spinach to squeeze in some vegetables.
