Ham, Asparagus, and Cheddar Frittata

Asparagus Ham and Cheddar Frittata

One of my favorite dishes to make for company for breakfast or brunch is a frittata. First, you can add all sorts of things from meats, cheeses, and veggies. And second, they are pretty simple to prepare! And with the holiday season upon us, I thought you all might want some easy breakfast recipes to have handy. This frittata makes me think of my grandma because she loves to make frittatas with asparagus. I remember eating them a lot on nights where she didn’t feel like cooking a big meal for dinner.

My friends at STAR sent me some of their Cara Mia Marinated Asparagus to use in a recipe and I thought it would be perfect to use in a frittata! It made the frittata even simpler to make and I like the added flavor from the marinade on the asparagus. I also added some sliced ham and sharp cheddar cheese. I would happily eat this for breakfast, brunch, or dinner!
