Foodie Friday: Asparagus Frittata


I hope everyone had a great, food-filled week. I needed a fast entree and remembered the frittata! It's fast, simple, and filling. I used a Food Network Recipe. It was a little flat, not as poofy, and but looks are deceiving. It was delicious.

I've been pondering this question all week: When I'm too busy too cook, why do I always have time to eat? :-)

  2. Hi Michael Lee ~
    Frittata's are amazingly fabulous meals ...
    My mother made them all the time. My father just loves them and has her recipe down perfectly.

    He makes them pancake size and freezes them for "those days" when he doesn't want to cook. I took his advice and always keep a half a dozen in the freezer. What a time / life saver they have become.

    Asparagus are our favorites!
    I hope your week began gently.

  3. Oh, that looks delicious. The perfect food for this weather. We're actually chilly here tonight.

    I wish I could help with the fluffiness issue, but I'm clueless.

    Hope all is well and that the writing is going great for you. Hope you got your book jacket nailed down, too!

    XO,

    Sheila :-)

  4. Have no idea of what could have gone wrong but it looks scrumptious! I saw asparagus and then frittata and clicked on it immediately!!
    Just purchased a jar of pickled asparagus to use in my Bloody Mary's and I have a new favorite now...

  8. It looks fine to me! Pretty with the asparagus. Thanks for passing along the recipe.

  9. Mine do come out fluffier, but if you look at the pic in their recipe it looks just like yours, so I guess that's how it was supposed to come out! As long as it tasted good!

  10. It almost looks as though the pan you used was too big. Maybe it's the recipe (that's always what I tell myself when something goes awry -- it's THE RECIPE!). I'm sure it was delicious.

  11. Pattie, the pan was too big. Thanks. I think Santa needs to bring more cookware. :-)

  12. ML, you could always enter a blog give away for some new pans! :)

  13. Hi,
    This is the first time I am participating in Foodie Friday. I posted my recipe twice becaause the first time I did something wrong and it did not link back to my recipe. Could you please delete the one that says "Bean and Escarole Soup at Chicory Nits"? The second on is correct. Sorry. I love your blog! I live in NY and I love being in Manhattan as well. Thanks for this great party.

  14. I hope Santa brings you the right pan :) Even if a wee bit skinny, your frittata looks delicious! And who doesn't like skinny?

  15. I love anything such as this to keep frozen for "company"....this looks amazing.

    ReplyDelete
  16. That's something I will try for sure.
    Thanks!

  23. I'm with everyone on this... love asparagus frittata... easy (and after my last post I love easy) and so delicious!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I think you just lifted a weight off my shoulders. An asparagus frittata will be much easier than the chicken parmesan I was planning for tonight's dinner. Thank you! :)

  28. Thanks for hosting the recipe swap. Your frittata looks delicious!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Sounds yummy! I make my scrambled eggs poufy with the addition of a little water. Maybe that would work for the frittata?

    ReplyDelete
  30. I have to say I never had one, but how wonderful it looks! Just might have to give it a try!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Actually, it looks amazing. I love food like this.

    And I seem to have the same problem with eating. Just because I don't have time to cook, food still seems to magically appear ;)

    Happy Friday!

  32. Michael...this looks delicious! When you find the answer to that question...please share it because I've noticed the same thing about me. LOL :)

  36. That frittata looks pretty delish to me! Thanks for hosting!

  37. That frittata looks great, Michael! How exciting about your new book coming out, especially with that rave review from Janet Evanovich on the cover--wow! :-)

    I linked up No Roll, Never Fail, Press-In Pie Crust. It can be made gluten-free or gluten-full, so to speak. ;-)

    Hugs,
    Shirley
