Directions

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

In a medium bowl, beat the eggs, Romano, milk, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1 pepper with a whisk.

In a 12-inch nonstick skillet with an oven-safe handle, melt the butter on medium-high heat. Stir in the asparagus and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, and cook 4 minutes. Add the green onions, and cook 2 minutes, stirring often. Spread the vegetable mixture evenly in the skillet.

Reduce the heat to medium-low. Pour the egg mixture into the skillet and cook without stirring until the mixture starts to set around the edge, 4 to 5 minutes. Place the skillet in the oven and bake until set, about 10 minutes. Invert the frittata onto a serving plate and cut into wedges.

    OMG this frittata is delicious! Very easy to make, I like to have it for dinner and take leftovers to work for lunch. I make half the recipe in a smaller pan. It is so satisfying that I don't even miss having bread with my eggs!

    Best frittata ever!! My 10 year old is so picky and after giving me a courtesy byte she wanted more. Wonderful recipe I highly recommend it. Make sure you use non stick or you'll have a hard time getting it off the pan : like I did but my entire family loved it.

    As I usually do, I tweaked it a little - instead of green onions I added a red/purple one, I added sliced mushrooms and used olive oil to saute (like she said in the show and I forgot to buy the romano so used parmesan instead = WONDERFUL! Great recipe!
