Asparagus and Swiss Cheese Frittata

Frittatas are the perfect breakfast or brunch. Also ideal for preparing meals. I usually do them with whatever I have on hand. In spring, asparagus goes wonderfully with Swiss cheese, but you can also use mozzarella or Havarti. Some other egg dishes you might love will be tomato zucchini frittata, spinach feta frittata, or broccoli cheese quiche.

Asparagus and eggs in a pan

This is really filling, and the leftovers are perfect for lunch or breakfast the next day. They’re inexpensive and a great way to clean your refrigerator. A great option for a meatless dinner on Monday too, with a side salad.

When asparagus is in season, I buy it and steam it right away so that I can use it for quick recipes all week. It’s great to add eggs, salads, chilled with a simple Dijon vinaigrette, or even paninis (LOVE these asparagus and ham panini)!

Asparagus is full of nutrients, is a great source of fiber, vitamins A and C, and is full of antioxidants, which makes it a superstar in my book!

Variations

  • Make It Dairy Free! Violife makes some wonderful dairy-free cheese options!
  • Protein: I like to fluff up frittatas by using partial egg whites, but you can use whole eggs as well.
  • Switch it over! Instead of shallots, onions or shallots can also be used. Swap the cheese for anything you like or have on hand.
