Simple Mushroom & Asparagus Frittata Recipe

I made this simple mushroom & asparagus frittata recipe a few weeks ago, and I’m just now getting the chance to share it. Breakfast is my absolute favorite meals of the day. I could eat breakfast food all day long.

Even though Good Papa enjoys making brunch most weekend days, I really enjoy cooking breakfast on the other days. I’m not a morning person (just ask Good Papa), but knowing I get to eat breakfast motivates me to get up and start the day. Is it sad that I’m so motivated by food? 

If you are looking to serve a larger group of people or you have a bunch of veggies you don’t know what to do with, a frittata is the perfect choice. I made this frittata for my mom, aunts and cousins (my mom has four sisters and two sister-in-laws, so that’s quite a number). I love how simple it is to throw together. Plus, it’s a lot healthier than a quiche!

Simple Mushroom & Asparagus Frittata Recipe

You can make this dish with mushrooms and asparagus like I did or you can try it out with whatever veggies you have on hand. I have a bunch of peppers I need to use, so I’m thinking they would be great in this frittata tomorrow morning. The cast iron skillet really helps to make this a yummy dish, but you can make it no problem in any oven-safe pan. Just make sure you cook up the veggies in a separate pan because the excess water will make your frittata too runny.

If your toddler is an egg-eater, a frittata is a great dish to sneak in some extra veggies.

  • I love frittatas! I need to make this-I love asparagus and mushrooms!! And breakfast is my favorite meal of the day too, (especially when I’m pregnant!)

  • I love a good frittata and thanks for the reminder that this is a great way to get more veggies into the kids not to mention using up veggies.

  • Melissa says:

    I love a good frittata! I’ve made mini ones before with zucchini and some chives. I think mushrooms and asparagus sounds like a good combination too!

  • Herchel S says:

    This looks delicious and I was just looking for a dish to bring to a “yay, the kids are back in school” moms brunch on Friday!

    Thanks!

    Oh my gosh, this looks so good! I dont think I have ever made a frittata!! I am more of a quiche gal, but I need to give this one a try!

  • I am going to have to try this. We love eggs in our house. And I love sneaking in those veggies when they have no idea! This would be a good thing to make also if you had company over for the next morning! I will be pinning this!

    This was so tasty. I made one with peppers, onion, mushrooms, baby spinach and Gruyere. I used only 8 eggs and 1/4 cup while milk. It was delicious. I cannot believe I never had a frittata before. Yum.
