Asparagus Frittata

Asparagus Frittata

It is finally feeling like summer, but never too sunny for a delicious and easy Frittata. Sure do miss my quiches, but when you don’t have the time this Frittata is pretty darn close. Here is the perfect answer to that kind of comfort food. It’s healthy, delicious and takes hardly any time to put together! I have made a few lately but this one is hands down my favorite. You need very little ingredients for a super filling meal. Here’s all you do:


8 Eggs

1/4 cup half and half

1 teaspoon italian seasoning (always use fresh if you have it)

Salt & Pepper to taste

1/2-3/4  cup chopped onion

1 cup sharp cheddar cheese

Asparagus – 5 to 6 stalks, trimmed

3 small tomatoes, sliced in 1/4″ slices

Preheat oven to 350˚.  Grease a pie dish spreading evenly.  Saute onion in a tablespoon of olive oil. Set aside to cool. In a medium bowl mix all the eggs, then add the milk and the spices. Fold in cheese and onions. Pour into prepared pie dish.  Place asparagus stalks around the pie plate, adding the sliced tomatoes in between the asparagus. Place foil on top of the frittata and bake 30-35 minutes. Keep an eye on this, as it can brown easily but still be wet in the center. Let cool 5 minutes before slicing. This is BEST right out of the oven and served. But, any leftover is always just as delicious.

Serve with salad or sliced potatoes. Sweet comfort!

Bon Appétit!
