Spring Brunch Asparagus Frittata Ingredients

Here is a list of the delicious ingredients used in this frittata. The exact measurements are in the recipe card at the bottom of this post.

  • Grape tomatoes
  • Large eggs
  • Half-and-half or milk
  • Butter
  • Fresh spinach
  • Asparagus
  • Shredded fontina cheese
  • Fresh dill
  • Fresh basil
  • Goat cheese

Kitchen Tools Needed:

All you to make this spring frittata is an oven-safe 10-inch skillet, preferably nonstick. I like to use my well-seasoned cast-iron skillet.

You will also need a whisk to beat the eggs, a sharp knife is handy when chopping the vegetables, and a heat-resistant spatula is needed to saute the veggies.

How to Make This Asparagus Frittata

This simple Asparagus Frittata is a quick and easy recipe, requiring only a couple of steps.

It is cooked first on the stovetop and then finished under a broiler.

Step 1: Whisk the Eggs

Whisk together eggs, half-and-half, salt, and pepper in a large mixing bowl. Set aside

Step 2: Saute the Vegetables

Heat butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add the chopped asparagus and saute until crisp-tender, then raise the heat to medium-high and saute the tomatoes for another minute. Finally, add spinach and cook until beginning to wilt.

Step 3: Add the Eggs and Cook

Pour in the egg mixture, and sprinkle with cheese and herbs. Reduce the heat to medium-low and cook until the frittata is almost set but still runny on top.

Step 4: Broil

Place the skillet under the broiler and cook until the top is set and golden brown; about 5 minutes.
