I changed out the cheddar cheese and replaced it with 4tbspn of ricotta whole milk cheese, blended gently with a fork and right before serving placed under broiler ( making sure pan handle is not.in oven) until litely browned. Major differnce on taste - that is the Italian method.
A perfect centerpiece for a lazy Sunday brunch. I was tempted to add sun-dried tomatoes but held off, and glad I did. As presented, the asparagus really shine through and are well complemented by the cheese, in my case a mix of soy gouda and soy mozzarella. I made a slightly lighter version by replacing 2 of the eggs with 4 egg whites and all the butter with a single tablespoon of fancy extra extra virgin olive oil. (Thank heavens for a good non-stick skillet.) Served with a mixed green and strawberry salad and a roasted tomato sauce on the side. Thanks!
Wonderful main dish method of preparing asparagus! I add freshly grated parmigiana reggiano and torn basil leaves to mine. Spectacular frittata!
Nice lunch recipe!! I was cleaning out the fridge and used jalapeno jack cheese-- this was a mistake as the taste kind of overwhelmed the asparagus! Next time I will try less cheese and something more appropriate. By the way, I don't have an ovenproof skillet; so I warmed a metal 8x8 pan in the oven, melted the butter in it and poured in the eggs. 20 minutes at 400 degrees and it was perfect.
Just had this for a light supper and it was delicious! Love the little snap of the asparagus in this. Great easy recipe! Thanks cookiedog!
Lovely!! I doubled the cheese and added a teaspoon of chopped garlic and a few twists of fresh pepper...definitely a keeper!
Very quick and easy way to do a frittata. The asparagus cooks very quicky, on about 3-4 minutes and mine were tender. I finished in the oven which took about 8 minutes to doneness. Thanks! Go JEFES! Made for ZWT4
a fabulous asparagus, i used europes best frozen bd the store ones were woody.
I had forgotten how quick and easy frittatas are until I prepared this. There is very little effort for a whole lot of flavor. I did not boil the asparagus, but steamed them in the microwave instead, which really sped things up. I agree with Lavender Lynn that this invites varied ingredients, and will definitely be playing with this for a long time. Thanks for a great, easy recipe. Made for ZWT4.
