Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Position an oven rack in upper shelf of oven and preheat broiler.
  2. Whisk eggs, 3 tablespoons of cheese, milk, lemon zest, 1 teaspoon salt, and pepper to taste together in a bowl. Set aside.
  3. Heat olive oil in an 8-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add asparagus and bacon and saute until asparagus is tender but still slightly crisp, about 4 minutes. Reduce heat to low, pour in egg mixture and stir gently to distribute. Cover and cook until eggs begin to set and bottom lightly browns, about 9 minutes.
  4. Uncover pan, sprinkle frittata with remaining tablespoon of cheese, and broil until eggs are set and lightly browned on top, about 1 minute. Remove from broiler and let sit for 5 minutes. Slip frittata out of pan onto a cutting board, slice into wedges. Serve warm or at room temperature with herb salad.
