Asparagus and Rosemary Fritatta
Well, last night we had AMAZING Cajun fish and asparagus for dinner! (I was going to take a picture and post but we devoured it so quickly I forgot!) I woke up this morning thinking about my delicious asparagus and that in the coming months the farmers market will be open and beautiful, in season, asparagus will be plentiful! I cant wait for that. But until then my whole foods frozen asparagus will do, its still delicious.
I wanted to make a hearty, healthy, satisfying breakfast and use some of my asparagus from last night. Then it hit me. I remembered watching someone on the food network whip up a frittata! I've never made one before today, and honestly have never given them much thought. Boy have I been missing out!! Frittata's are like omelets but without all the hard work. So I threw together some flavors I thought would be good, and it turned out WONDERFULLY!!
6 pastured eggs
salt and pepper to taste
a sprinkle of dry mustard (probably 1/2 teaspoon)
1 teaspoon of fresh chopped Rosemary
I whisked this all very well in my Kitchen aid until light and fluffy.
In an oven proof skillet I sauteed over medium heat:
(I used a good amount of coconut oil to saute)
1 small onion
5 spears of chopped Asparagus
1 small clove of garlic
once the veggies were tender I poured the egg mixture into the skillet so the eggs could set on the bottom. Then I transferred the pan into a preheated 350 degree oven for about 10 minutes or until set.
I loosened the edges of the frittata and flipped it onto a sering plate.
I topped the frittata with cheese and set under the broiler just to melt the cheese. (I used oven safe dishes, but you could leave it in the pan and just top with cheese and set under broiler)
Then I topped with fresh chopped green onion.
It was so easy and DELICIOUS. The possibilities are endless.
Do you have any good fritatta recipes??? Send them my way, I'm officially obsessed :)
Well, I'm going to go cozy up on the couch now with my coffee! Hope you have a great day :)
