Asparagus Frittata

Asparagus Frittata

"You would never guess that egg substitute takes the place of eggs in this fun variation on a traditional frittata. Chock-full of fresh asparagus, this dish is perfect for a light springtime lunch or brunch. The recipe was sent in by James Bates of Hermiston, Oregon."

  1. In a small saucepan, bring water to a boil. Add asparagus; cover and boil for 3 minutes. Drain and immediately place asparagus in ice water; drain and pat dry. In a 10-in. ovenproof skillet, saute onion in oil until tender. Add parsley and asparagus; toss to coat.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the egg substitute, 3 tablespoons Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper. Pour over the asparagus mixture; cover and cook over medium heat for 8-10 minutes or until eggs are nearly set. Sprinkle with remaining Parmesan. Place uncovered skillet in the broiler, 6 in. from the heat, for 2 minutes or until eggs are set. Sprinkle with cheddar cheese. Cut into quarters. Serve immediately.
