Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil divided
  • 1 medium leek white and light green parts only, halved and sliced into half moons
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 8 ounces cremini mushrooms stemmed and sliced
  • 8 ounces asparagus cut into 1" pieces
  • 1 cup diced ham I used Wellshire Farms black forest ham
  • 8 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup half and half substitute with the milk of choice
  • 1/2 cup grated jack and cheddar cheese blend or your favorite
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • Freshly chopped Italian flat leaf parsley for garnish (optional)

Instructions 

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  • Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a 9 or 10" non-stick or cast iron skillet over medium heat.  Add the leek, garlic, and mushrooms and saute for 2 minutes.  Add the asparagus and a pinch of salt, and cook until crisp tender and the mushrooms are softened, about 3 minutes more.  Stir in the diced ham, then brush the sides of the pan with the remaining oil to prevent sticking.
  • While the vegetables cook, beat the eggs and milk in a medium bowl until well combined.  Whisk in the cheese, salt, and pepper, and pour the mixture evenly over the vegetable-ham mixture.  Cook over medium heat until the bottom of the eggs just start to set, then remove from heat and bake in the oven for 8-10 minutes or until the eggs are set.
  • Remove from heat and let stand 5 minutes.  Top with chopped parsley if using, then slice, serve, and enjoy!

Notes

  • This frittata is equally delicious meatless -- simply omit the ham.  I've made a meatless version with goat cheese and it was incredible!
  • You can customize this frittata with any of your favorite meats, vegetables, or cheese.
  • The milk in this recipe isn't a necessity, but it does result in richer, fluffier eggs.
  • The filling may be prepared in advance to get this frittata on the table even faster at meal time!
