The EASIEST way to make eggs a little fancier! This swiss cheese asparagus bacon frittata is packed with tons of spring veggies, crispy bacon, and gooey swiss cheese.
Oh man. Completely unintentionally so, I’ve managed to make every single recipe so far this week breakfast food.
Coincidence with the fact that Mother’s Day is only a few short weeks away? You decide.
And while you’re deciding, you should also make an executive decision to include the EASIEST-ever eggs on your brunch menu. That would be this swiss cheese asparagus bacon frittata.
Just consider the whole pan yours maybe? I mean, that’s what I did…
Don’t be fooled by the humbling and simple appearance of this frittata, guys. It is LOADED with all the best breakfast things and my family demolished it pretty much instantaneously.
Cause, well…you know we don’t really believe in leftovers of any kind around here.
Here’s the deal for these eggs. Frittatas are pretty much the ultimate fancy-lookin’ egg dish because unlike quiche it doesn’t have a crust and cooks up nearly completely on the stove. It’s stupid easy in other words.
Veggies and bacon get sauteed until tender and crispy. Eggs go on top and then let the whole thing slowly cook away on the stove. Once the eggs are solid…swiss cheese on top, pop it under the broiler…
…And I promise brunch just got significantly better in the egg department.
Isn’t it pretty? Almost too colorful and pretty to eat, but please…like that’s gonna stop us.
Swiss Cheese Asparagus Bacon Frittata
- 4 strips bacon diced
- 1-1/2 cups fresh asparagus spears cut into 1-in pieces
- 1/2 cup diced sweet red pepper
- 3 cloves garlic minced
- 6 large eggs lightly beaten
- 1/4 cup milk
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 1 cup shredded swiss cheese
- 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
In a 12-in skillet, cook bacon over medium-high heat until crispy. Add asparagus, pepper, and garlic and saute 8-10 minutes until veggies are just barely tender.
Stir in eggs, milk, and season with salt and pepper to taste. Reduce heat to medium and let eggs cook without stirring 5-8 minutes until eggs are set. Remove from heat and sprinkle with cheese. Broil under high heat 1-2 minutes until cheese is melted. Remove from oven and sprinkle parsley over top. Cut frittata into wedges and serve immediately. Enjoy!
