"Eggs for dinner! Or lunch, or a brunch by the sea. You crack a bunch of eggs and cook them with some filling. I say asparagus, potatoes and cheese, but you can say anything you please—maybe tomatoes, mozzarella and pesto, maybe corn and peas."

Easy Cheesy Dinner Frittata

Ingredients

For 4 Person(s)

Recipe

  • 8 organic, free-range eggs
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoons salt
  • 1 pinches pepper
  • For the filling:
  • 2 tablespoons butter or olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons diced red onions
  • 1/2 cups diced potatoes
  • 1/2 cups chopped asparagus
  • 1/2 cups cubed mozzarella, Gruyère or Fontina
  • 1 tablespoons chopped soft herbs like basil, dill or parsley

Easy Cheesy Dinner Frittata Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to its broil setting. In a medium-size bowl, using a fork, whisk together the eggs, Parmesan, salt, and pepper. Set aside.
  2. Heat a medium-size, nonstick, oven-safe pan over medium-high heat. Add the butter and let it melt. Add the onion, potatoes, and asparagus to the pan and sauté for 8 minutes or until the potatoes are soft.
  3. Pour the eggs into the pan and reduce the heat to medium-low. Stir with a rubber spatula once. Cook for 4 to 5 minutes or until the egg mixture is starting to set (thicken). Top with the mozzarella cubes.
  4. Place the pan into the oven and broil for 3 to 4 minutes, until lightly browned and fluffy. Remove from the pan and cut into wedges. Garnish with herbs.
