Asparagus and Mushroom Frittata
Asparagus and Mushroom Frittata
This recipe for Asparagus and Mushroom Frittata is a two-egg frittata. That simply means this recipe is enough for one person or a “single serving size” frittata. This easy frittata serves one, but can easily be stretched for two. If serving for breakfast or brunch add a bowl of fruit such as berries and/or yogurt. If you’re going to serve asparagus and mushroom frittata for a light lunch, add a small side salad or bowl of cottage cheese.
Rhubarb and Asparagus
With the cooler weather we are experiencing here in Wisconsin I have had a hellava time finding fresh asparagus and rhubarb this spring. In fact, I finally had my favorite farm stand set aside a bunch or two of each for me. They called today and said that with all the rain we had this past weekend, the asparagus and rhubarb season came to an end before it even got started. My son and daughter-in-law have Mulberry trees on their property and she said that the trees just got leaves on them. I guess it will be a late start to berry season too.

Asparagus and Mushroom Frittata for One
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 4-5 mushrooms sliced
- 4-5 asparagus spears trimmed and cut into 1/2 inch pieces
- 1/8 teaspoon garlic and herb seasoning
- couple grinds of black pepper
- 2 large eggs
- 1 tablespoon milk
- 1 tablespoon sliced green onions
- 2 tablespoons finely shredded cheese
- Preheat the oven to broil.
- Melt butter in a 7 to 8-inch non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add the sliced mushrooms and cook for 5-8 minutes, turning often until mushrooms are golden brown. Add the asparagus and cook for 2-3 minutes longer. Season with garlic and herb seasoning and a couple grinds of black pepper. Whisk the eggs in a bowl with milk until light and frothy. Slowly pour into the mushroom and asparagus mixture. Sprinkle with sliced green onions and shredded cheese. Cook the eggs undisturbed until the edges begin to pull away from the edge of the pan and begin to set. Gently lift the edges of the egg mixture and tilt the pan so the uncooked egg runs under the cooked eggs. Cook for another minute or so.
- Transfer the fry pan to the oven and broil for 2-3 minutes or until the eggs have puffed and have cooked through. Remove from the oven and sprinkle with more cheese if desired. Transfer egg mixture to serving plate.
