I’m not sure about you BUT I am SO ready for spring! I’m truly over all the unseasonable weather that has hit my neck of the woods the last month or so. I think Mother Nature forgot to “spring forward” last month but not me. I’m thinking spring and channeling the warmer weather with this Leeks and Roasted Asparagus Frittata.
Not only is this a quick and flavorful meal, it’s perfect for brunch, lunch or dinner. It also does not require a lot of prep. It just requires a simple saute of the leeks and mushrooms and a 10-15 minute oven roast of the asparagus. All of which could easily be prepared in advance if you like. Once the vegetables are prepared and cooled slightly, you just mix them together with your eggs and cheeses. To finish up the dish, just pour the egg mixture into a greased, non stick skillet and cook through on both sides. Transfer to a dish and serve warm.
This versatile frittata is my go to dinner on friday nights and when I’m in a pinch for a quick weeknight meal. The only thing missing on this menu is a nice fresh, spring salad. Whether you are wishing for the warmer weather like me or just looking for a great, flavorful meal, save this recipe below and you’ll be springing forward in no time. Happy Cooking!
