Recipe Creation: Spring Asparagus + Feta Frittata

I love that we are finally getting to enjoy the produce of spring.  Asparagus is one of those bright green veggies I associate with the the onset of this wonderful season.  This frittata is the perfect dish for Easter brunch or any lazy spring day.  It's actually just as delightful for dinner or as leftovers.  It's so easy, yet looks and tastes divine. Enjoy!

Serves 2-4


  • 2 tbsp. unsalted butter
  • 1/3 cup minced shallots
  • 1 pinch kosher salt
  • 1 lb. asparagus, ends removed and sliced diagonally in 1-inch pieces
  • 6 large eggs, beaten
  • 3/4 cup crumbled feta


-In a 10-inch ovenproof skillet, heat butter over medium heat.
-Add the shallots and cook, stirring occasionally, for 3 minutes.
-Add the asparagus, cover, and cook on medium-low for 3 minutes.
-Add a pinch of salt to the eggs and pour the eggs over the asparagus. 
-Cook for 5 minutes, or until set, and preheat the broiler.
-Sprinkle feta over the eggs and place in the oven for 5 minutes, or until cooked.
-Remove from heat and let cool on a platter.
-Slice and serve with a simple green salad.  

~Happy Easter~
