Recipe by Irmgard
This frittata combines two of my favourites vegetables, asparagus and mushrooms. You can serve it for brunch or for a light dinner with a salad.

Well I went to the store to get mushrooms and Asparagus, got home no mushrooms - The woman behind me must have ended up with them. I had two large mushrooms at home so I cut them up but that looked a bit skimpy so I added 4 thin slices of prosciutto chopped I browned the mushrooms as suggested and then baked the Frittata in 375 oven for 25 minutes - I added the cheese half way through the baking when the egg was set but not fully cooked . Lovely dinner thanks Irngard

- Drain the liquid from the skillet; heat the remaining butter and olive oil over medium heat, swirling to coat the pan.
- Combine the eggs, parsley and pepper; pour into the skillet.
- Cover and cook over medium-low heat for 5 to 7 minutes or until the top is almost set.
