March 27, 2013

This lovely Asparagus and Spinach Frittata recipe is the perfect side dish to an Easter ham or lamb, or served along with a nice green salad for a spring brunch.

Asparagus and Spinach Frittata

2 tablespoons butter
1 1 12- ounce bunch thin asparagus, trimmed, cut on diagonal into inch pieces (about 2 ½ cups)
8 large eggs
1 cup diced Fontina cheese, divided
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 cups fresh spinach, chopped
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Preheat broiler. Melt butter in a heavy broiler-proof 10-inch-diameter nonstick skillet over medium heat.

Add asparagus, sprinkle lightly with salt, and sauté until tender, about 6 minutes.

Whisk eggs, 3/4 cup Fontina cheese, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper in medium bowl.

Add spinach and egg mixture to skillet; fold gently to combine. Cook until almost set. Sprinkle remaining 1/4 cup Fontina cheese and Parmesan cheese over.

Broil until frittata is puffed and cheese begins to turn golden, about 3 minutes.

Cut into wedges and serve.

This looks delicious! I love asparagus, quiche type dishes, cheese definitely, and I try to figure out ways to eat spinach as cooked, it's not one of my favorites :) Tagging this one to try! Like the pic too with the placement of the flower. Thanks
