      The recipe was reduced to 3 servings and made a very nice lunch for DH and I. I subbed a grated white cheese for the Fontina. The frittata was cooked until almost set and then flipped onto a plate and slide back into the pan to cook the top in lieu of placing under the broiler. This was served with left over Roasted Rosemary Potatoes with Garlic and fresh baked bread.

      It tasted very good. I halved the recipe (small pan), used all butter instead of half butter half olive oil (this may be why my frittata's bottom was overly brown?), added an extra egg white (left over). Next time I will try adding meat and season with garlic or some other herbs.

      The second time I made this dish I found what works better for me. With my half recipe, I added 3 egg whites with the 3 eggs, increased whipping cream to 1.5 tbsp (approx.) while keep the amount of salt & pepper the same. In addition to asparagus and tomato, I added mushroom cooked in cream (left over, from Pluto's) which really gave and extra kick. When serve, I topped the frittata with that same mushroom in cream sauce.
