Serves 6

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Heat a 10-inch oven-safe nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.
  3. In a large bowl whisk together the eggs, milk, Parmesan, black pepper and cayenne pepper until light yellow and smooth. Set aside.
  4. Add two tablespoons of olive oil to the skillet and heat it through.
  5. Add the asparagus.
  6. Toss to coat in the oil, then spread into a single layer in the pan.
  7. Let the asparagus sear for about 4-5 minutes until browned on one side.
  8. Remove the asparagus from the pan and set aside.
  9. Add the prosciutto and sear it, stirring constantly, until browned and crispy.
  10. Remove the prosciutto and set aside.
  11. Add the remaining half tablespoon to the pan and swirl to coat.
  12. Add the prosciutto into a single layer in the pan.
  13. Add the asparagus in a single layer on top of the prosciutto.
  14. Gently pour the egg mixture evenly over the top of the asparagus.
  15. Run a thin rubber spatula around the edge of the pan, then place the pan in the oven for 15 minutes until the frittata is just set and a toothpick comes out cleanly.
  16. Allow to cool for about 5 minutes before serving.
  17. Enjoy!
