Today I’m sharing this simple frittata recipe. I have been trying to be careful of what I eat lately.  I am reducing fat and trying to include more vegetables in my diet. One of the easiest ways for me to include more vegetables in my diet is to make a quiche.  With our own ducks and chickens, we always have extra eggs. Normally, when I make quiche, I use a pie crust and add quite a bit of cheese.  That’s not really a low-fat type of meal.

Easy Spring Frittata Recipe

To help keep the calories down, I decided to make a frittata recipe instead.  Since I received Klondike Rose potatoes and Green Giant Fresh Asparagus for a feature on my site, those were the main ingredients in my frittata recipe. There is a coupon beginning October 14, for free asparagus when you purchase Klondike Rose potatoes that are found exclusively at Target. Now is the perfect time to try out this frittata recipe for yourself.

Frittata recipe: Asparagus & Potato Frittata

A frittata is an Italian dish that is made with beaten eggs. It is very similar to an omelet except the ingredients are cooked in the eggs instead of being placed in the center of the eggs before they are folded. If you are not watching your calories, a handful of shredded cheese on top of this while it is under the broiler is absolutely amazing.

A frittata is a wonderful lunch with a salad or as a side for dinner with meat and bread.  You can vary the vegetables but since there is such a great deal at Target right now, pick up some Klondike Rose potatoes and Green Giant Fresh Asparagus and try it this way.

  2. There's no limit to what you can put into a frittata. I find it a good way to use leftover pasta, with some cubed, grilled aubergine and a sprinkling of feta cheese...

  7. This sounds wonderful. Can't wait to try it.  Question - the first step is to "cook the potatoes and asparagus until almost tender" ? How?  in a pan with nothing else?  with oliveoil? with broth? water? Not the best of cooks, so I need a bit of guidance. thanks,
