Asparagus Frittata

  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 small onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 pound asparagus, tough ends snapped off, spears cut diagonally into 1-inch lengths
  • 12 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 1/2 cup shredded Gruyere or Swiss cheese

Heat olive oil into a 10-inch oven-proof frying pan over medium high heat.
Add onions and salt and cook, stirring occasionally, until onions are softened, about 3 minutes. Add asparagus, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook, covered, until the asparagus are barely tender, 6 to 8 minutes. Pour in eggs and cook until almost set, but still runny on top, about 2 minutes. While cooking, pre-heat oven broiler.

Sprinkle cheese over eggs and put in oven to broil until cheese is melted and browned, about 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from oven with oven and slide frittata onto a serving plate. Cut into wedges.

Bird Nest Casserole

(Recipe adapted by me from “Suite101”)

  • 3 cups left over stuffing
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 can condensed, cream of chicken, soup

Press stuffing into an 8×8 inch square cake pan. Use a rounded cup or large spoon to press 4 egg size indentations into the stuffing. Crack open one egg into each “nest”. Top with condensed soup. Bake at 350° for 25 to 30 minutes or eggs are medium set.

This makes a perfect breakfast or brunch. Serve with fresh fruit.
