Fresh Asparagus Frittata

While asparagus is fresh and in-season, there’s no better vegetable. If you get carried away with your asparagus purchases the way we do, a frittata is a simple and delicious way to enjoy asparagus at its best.

Tip: If you choose to use leftover asparagus that’s already cooked, add the asparagus to the pan with the eggs instead of the onion.

Ingredients

  • 6 large eggs
  • ¼ cup skim milk
  • ¼ tsp. garlic salt
  • ½ cup shredded, reduced-fat Swiss cheese
  • ½ cup chopped onion
  • ½ cup chopped bell pepper
  • 1 cup chopped asparagus

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine eggs, milk, garlic salt, and cheese. Mix well.
  2. Spray 10″ skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium. Sauté onion, pepper, and asparagus until tender (5-8 minutes).
  3. Reduce heat to low and pour egg mixture into skillet. Cover and cook until set (15-20 minutes).
  4. Cut into slices to serve.
