Springtime Frittata

The omelet's easygoing cousin, this frittata is perfect for a light dinner or lunchtime treat. 

  • 8 eggs

  • 2 tablespoons milk

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • pinch pepper

  • 5 slices bacon

  • 8 oz asparagus

  • 1 shallot

  • 4 oz Appalachian

Whisk together eggs, milk, salt, and pepper in a medium bowl; grate the Appalachian and stir into egg mixture. Set aside. Adjust the oven rack to just under the broiler and heat broiler. 

Cut bacon into 1/4 inch pieces, then cook in a 10-inch oven-safe skillet until crisp. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate.

Trim the asparagus and cut into 1/4 inch pieces; mince the shallot. Add vegetables to bacon fat in skillet and cook until asparagus is lightly brown and almost tender, about 3 minutes. Add bacon, then add egg mixture and cook, stirring and scraping the bottom of the skillet until large curds form but eggs are still very wet, about 2 minutes. Distribute eggs evenly; let cook another minute to allow bottom to set.

Broil until frittata has risen and surface is puffed and spotty brown, about 4 minutes. 

Let frittata cool five minutes, then run spatula or knife around the outer edge to loosen and invert onto a plate. Cut into wedges and serve warm.
