Ingredients

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

Preparation

  1. 1. Preheat broiler. Pour olive oil into a 10-inch ovenproof frying pan over medium-high heat. Add onion and salt and stir until onion is softened but not browned, about 3 minutes. Add asparagus, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook, covered, until asparagus is barely tender, 6 to 8 minutes. Pour in eggs and cook until almost set but still runny on top, about 2 minutes.
  2. 2. Sprinkle cheese over eggs and broil until cheese is melted and browned, 3 to 4 minutes. Slide frittata onto a serving platter and cut into wedges.
