Potato-Asparagus-Gruyere Frittata

Ingredients

1/4 cup Gruyere cheese, shredded
2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
3 smalls red potatoes, sliced thin (ΒΌ inch or less)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
6 scallions, sliced thin
12 pieces asparagus, tough ends removed and chopped into 1-inch pieces

Preparation

1
Whisk eggs, egg whites and milk together in a large bowl. Gently stir in the cheese and set aside.
2
Spray a 10 or 12 inch ovenproof skillet (I love using my cast-iron Lodge skillet for this) with olive oil. Saute potatoes with salt and pepper over medium-high heat until they are soft and browned. Set aside.
3
Heat butter in the same skillet and saute scallions and asparagus until just tender. Set aside.
4
Arrange potatoes so that they cover the bottom of the skillet, top with asparagus and scallion mixture, pour the egg mixture over the top. Cook over medium-low heat until the bottom of the egg mixture has begun to set up. Do not stir!
5
Meanwhile, preheat broiler (set at medium).
6
Place the skillet about 5 inches from from the broiler and cook until the frittata is cooked through and the top browned.
7
Cut into 4 wedges and serve with whole-wheat toast.
