Asparagus and Goat Cheese Frittata

Asparagus and Goat Cheese Frittata
With the asparagus spears arranged on top in a spoke formation, this frittata makes an attractive main course for a springtime brunch or light supper.

Ingredients:

  • 12 eggs
  • 3 Tbs. finely chopped fresh chives
  • 1/4 tsp. finely chopped fresh tarragon
  • 2 Tbs. finely chopped fresh chervil
  • 2 oz. prosciutto, cut into 1/4-inch strips
  • 1/2 tsp. salt, plus more, to taste
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 6 oz. goat cheese, crumbled
  • 2 lb. asparagus, tough ends trimmed, spears steamed until just tender
      and cooled
  • 3 Tbs. unsalted butter
  • 1 leek, thinly sliced and rinsed well

Directions:

In a bowl, whisk together the eggs, chives, tarragon, chervil, prosciutto, the 1/2 tsp. salt and pepper. Stir in 4 oz. of the cheese. Cut enough asparagus ends into 1/4-inch lengths to measure 3/4 cup and add to the egg mixture. Reserve the remaining asparagus spears.

In the deep half of a frittata pan over medium heat, melt 1 Tbs. of the butter. Add the leek and salt and cook until the leek is tender, about 8 minutes. Transfer to the egg mixture.

In the deep half of the frittata pan over medium heat, melt 1 Tbs. of the butter. Add the egg mixture and cook, scraping the sides and bottom of the pan with a rubber spatula to allow the uncooked eggs to flow underneath, 3 to 4 minutes. Place the shallow pan upside down on top of the deep pan and cook for 6 to 8 minutes more.

Remove from the heat, uncover the deep pan and arrange the reserved asparagus spears on top of the frittata in a spoke formation. Meanwhile, set the shallow half of the pan over medium heat and melt the remaining 1 Tbs. butter.

Place the shallow pan upside down on top of the deep pan and flip the frittata into the shallow pan. Cook, covered, for 10 to 12 minutes. Flip the frittata back into the deep pan, then slide the frittata onto a serving plate. Let stand for 5 minutes. Top the frittata with the remaining cheese and serve. Serves 8.
