Frittatas seem to be hit and miss in this house. I personally love them, Thomas…well he likes them somedays and other days he has no interest. That’s fine by me, because that means I will have some left over to re-heat for breakfast during the week, or brunch on the weekend! (Because I don’t like to get up early enough for “breakfast” on the weekends haha
Since this is my first brunch post for the week, let me take a second to point your attention to that #BrunchWeek hashtag in the title of this post! I’ve partnered up with 31 other amazing, talented bloggers along with some wonderful brands and sponsors to bring you “Brunch Week“! It’s a week totally packed with Brunch Recipes and Great Prizes!

But for a little bit, let me get back to this Asparagus Tomato Frittata and the subject of eggs….
I use to love eggs, I then went through a stage where I hated them. Within the past two years though, I’ve started to eat them again. First I only wanted them to be poached, then only hard boiled and now I’m moving into Frittatas. We’ll see if I can keep this up or if I’ll go back into the “eggs gross me out phase”
Truly though, I think it’s all in how they are cooked. If they are cooked just right, I like them. If they’re over cooked or under cooked by just a tiny bit, I don’t want them at all. You might as well just eat them or dump them somewhere else.
I must say that the asparagus & tomatoes helped a bit.
What you’ll need:
2 tablespoons milk
1 tablespoon melted coconut oil
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon coconut oil
( or place under the broiler for 7-8 minutes in an oven safe skillet)
I do have to admit that Frittatas are pretty easy to make. All you have to do is pretty much dump everything into a skillet and leave it alone. 😉
Please…. have some! 🙂
