Prep Time10 mins
Cook Time35 mins
Total Time45 mins
Servings: 8

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 large shallot finely chopped
  • 4 ounces sliced mushrooms of choice
  • 1/2 pound baby asparagus ends trimmed and cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme finely minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • salt and black pepper
  • 8 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 4 ounces crumbled goat's cheese
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese
  • chopped fresh parsley for garnish

Instructions

  • Preheat your broiler.
  • In a medium to large-sized skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the shallot and mushrooms and cook until tender, about 8 minutes. Add the asparagus, Italian seasoning, thyme, crushed red pepper and a dash of salt and black pepper. Cook for an addition 3-4 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove from heat.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, heavy cream and a pinch of salt and black pepper. Stir in the goat's cheese, 1/4 cup of the parmesan cheese and the veggie mixture.
  • Wipe the pan out with a dry paper towel, and then spray generously with a non-stick spray and heat over medium. Pour the egg mixture into the pan, and cook for 8-10 minutes or until the edges are set but the middle is still runny. Slide a rubber spatula around the edge a couple of times during these 8-10 minutes to prevent sticking and to allow the uncooked mixture to flow underneath. Remove from heat and sprinkle on the remaining 1/4 cup of parmesan cheese.
  • Place the frittata under the broiler and broil until set and golden brown, about 3-4 minutes depending on how hot your broiler gets. Remove from heat, garnish with fresh parsley, cut into 8 equal-sized wedges and serve immediately!

Notes

I like to make a frittata at the beginning of the week and eat for breakfast throughout the week. Simply cook the frittata as instructed above and cut into 8 equal-sized pieces. Let it cool completely and then individually wrap each wedge with a piece of foil. When you go to heat it up in the morning, just place the entire parcel in the oven at 400 degrees and cook until warm.
