Have a Frittata!

A frittata is egg-based and can be very versatile as many different ingredients can be mixed and matched for a different outcome every time. It’s like a quiche without a crust. Make sure you use a skillet that can be used on top of the stove as well as under the broiler.

6 eggs, beaten

1 oz. Parmesan

Pinch Salt

1 tsp. butter

½ cup roasted asparagus

½ cup ham, chopped

1 T. Parsley, chopped

I roasted the asparagus and onion with a little olive oil for about 30 minutes.

Preheat oven to broil.

In a medium bowl blend eggs, cheese, pepper and salt.

Heat a 12 inch, nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add butter and allow it to melt.

Add asparagus and ham to skillet. Saute 2-3 minutes.

Pour egg mixture into skillet and cook 4-5 minutes or till set on the bottom.

Sprinkle with Parsley.

Place under the broiler 3-4 minutes until the top is done and slightly brown.

Cut the frittata into wedges and serve. Pair it with a nice salad and your favorite white wine.
