Grandma’s Asparagus Frittata


This frittata is one of the easiest things you can make and it not only makes a nice breakfast, but a great light lunch, too.

I use fresh eggs from a local farm that come in a range of beautiful colors.

You can use whole stalks of asparagus or slice it into 1 inch pieces.

When you make this frittata, make sure your broiler is ready to go.

Once you steam the asparagus, the frittata takes only a minute to make.

 You don’t even have to have a skillet with an oven proof handle – it will barely be under the broiler for 20 or 30 seconds.

SERVINGS:2

Ingredients:

  • several stalks of fresh asparagus
  • 4 fresh eggs
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmigiano Reggiano cheese

Instructions:

Preheat your broiler.

Break eggs into a bowl and beat with a fork.

Add the cheese to the eggs.

Steam the asparagus until tender.

Heat a 10″ nonstick skillet. Spray with cooking spray or add a little olive oil or butter.

Add egg mixture and place asparagus into the eggs.

Cook over medium heat for about 30 seconds.

Place under broiler until top is barely set, but not overdone.

Do not overcook the eggs.

They should still be just a little soft.

Slip frittata out onto a serving plate.

Cut into 4 wedges.
