Mushroom Asparagus FrittataPrint This
- 10 large eggs
- 1 – 8 ounce package fresh mushrooms, sliced
- ½ cup yellow onion, diced
- 1 cup asparagus, ends removed and sliced into 1 inch slices (20 spears)
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 cup feta cheese, crumbled
- ½ cup whole milk
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon black pepper
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Place your oven rack in the center of the oven.
Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium low heat. Add the mushrooms and saute for 4 minutes, until the liquid starts to render. Add the asparagus and onion to the pan and cook for an additional 3 minutes until the asparagus is bright green and the onions are translucent. Remove from the heat. Cool for 5 minutes.
In a large bowl, beat the eggs with the milk, salt and pepper. Stir the cooked vegetables and the feta cheese into the egg mixture.
Spray with cooking spray or grease a 9” deep dish pie plate. Pour the egg mixture into the pie plate.
Place in the oven and bake for 30 minutes or until the top of the frittata is just set.
Directions to bake as mini frittatas:
Equally distribute the mixture into your prepared custard cups or muffin pan.
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes. The custard cups will require a few more minutes than the muffin tin. The tops should be totally set and lightly browned.
