Individual Asparagus and Caramelized Onion Frittatas

Asparagus OmeletI am a big fan of eggs in all forms and I absolutely love asparagus, so last week I made these asparagus and caramelized onions frittatas with a mix of cheeses and fresh herbs for breakfast and we loved it. For those who are unfamiliar with frittatas, they are defined as: an Italian dish made with fried beaten eggs, resembling a spanish tortilla (omelet).

Feel free to substitute my cheeses, herbs and vegetables for your favorite ones instead.

    Love, love, love asparagus and cheese. In anything. Would have to add some sort of ham or sausage though to get the hubby to eat it. Beautiful photo of it.

    This looks AMAZING! It’s reminding me of the spring time – which we need to be reminded of during thsi snow storm here in Chicago.

    Frittatas are my favorite clean-out-the-fridge meal. You can basically put anything in them!

    I love the asparagus and caramelized onion combo. Perfection.

    I make frittata and tortilla all the time–depending on the ingredients, I call it one or the other. I start them on top of the stove and finish them in the oven, but no matter how they’re made, they’re so delicious. I enjoy them as much for dinner as for brunch.

    That sounds great! Asparagus goes so well with eggs and I really like all the cheeses you’ve used and the fresh herbs you’ve added–I am sure they make all the difference.
