Asparagus frittata in a cast iron skillet

I’ve been obsessed with asparagus lately, which you may have guessed by now. I’ve been eating roasted asparagus like crazy, and my creamy asparagus soup is perfect for the cold spring weather we’ve been having.

This Asparagus Frittata recipe is a perfect example of how wonderful asparagus is for breakfast as well.

Frittatas are one of my favorite breakfasts to prep because they’re low carb, satisfying and I can pack them full of veggies or whatever I have on hand.

My mushroom and spinach frittatas are favorites, but the asparagus and goat cheese make it feel a little extra fancy.

The combination is a match made in heaven, and I’m thinking that I need to make it again very soon. 🙂

Ingredient notes

  • Eggs. I’ve used large eggs for this recipe and have not tested it with any other size. If you have leftover egg whites in the refrigerator that you’d like to use up, they will work great in this frittata. A good rule of thumb is subbing two egg whites for one whole egg.
  • Asparagus. If you’re not a fan of asparagus or it’s not in season, substitute it with your favorite veggies and/or greens.
  • Goat cheese. The goat cheese adds a nice tangy flavor that marries well with the asparagus. If you’re not a fan, substitute it with your favorite cheese or omit it to make it dairy-free.
  • Milk. Use your favorite dairy or non-dairy milk.
  • Tarragon. The flavor of tarragon is the perfect compliment to the asparagus, but if you don’t have any hand it may be substituted with your favorite fresh or dried herbs.

How to make this recipe

This asparagus frittata recipe is very easy to make. It cooks up in one pan and it’s ready in about 30 minutes.
