Asparagus Frittata

I found the best recipe for an Asparagus Frittata on the Simply Recipes website.  It is so easy and absolutely amazing in flavor.  The only change I made was using onion powder instead of sliced scallions.  The family isn't that found of onions.

Not only is this recipe great, I love the fact it is cooked in one pan.  Yeah - hardly any clean up.  Great for busy nights or when you had a long day and you are just low on energy.

This Frittata is great for dinner - just serve it with a salad, or a nice brunch dish.

Asparagus Frittata
From Simply Recipes

Ingredients:
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 pound thin spear asparagus, tough ends snapped off, spears cut diagonally into 1-inch lengths
6 large eggs
3/4 cup cottage cheese
1 Tbsp minced fresh chives
1/4 teaspoon dried tarragon
1 cup shredded Gruyere or Swiss cheese
Directions:
1. Heat butter into a 10-inch oven-proof frying pan over medium heat.
Add asparagus and cook for an additional 3 minutes.
2. Beat the eggs and cottage cheese together, stir in the chives and tarragon.
Pour the egg mixture into the pan and cook until almost set, but still runny on top. While cooking, pre-heat oven broiler.
3. Sprinkle Gruyere cheese over the eggs and put in oven to broil until cheese is melted and browned, and the center is set, about 6 to 8 minutes.
4. Remove pan from oven with oven mitts and slide frittata onto a serving plate. Cut into wedges and serve.
