Asparagus and Swiss Cheese Frittata

Frittatas are the perfect breakfast or brunch necessity. Also great to make ahead for meal prep. I usually make them with whatever I have on hand. In the spring, asparagus is wonderful with Swiss cheese, but you can also use mozzarella or Havarti. Some other egg dishes you may love Tomato and Zucchini Frittata, Spinach and Feta Frittata or Broccoli and Cheese Quiche.

This is really filling, and the leftovers for perfect for lunch or breakfast the next day. They are inexpensive and a great way to clean out the fridge. A great option for Meatless Monday dinner also, with salad on the side.

Whenever asparagus is in season, I buy it and steam it right away to use for quick recipes throughout the week. It’s great to add to eggs, salads, served chilled with a simple Dijon Vinaigrette or even to add to paninis (LOVE this asparagus prosciutto panini)!

Asparagus is loaded with nutrients, it’s a great source of fiber, vitamin A and C, and it’s packed with antioxidants, which makes it a super star in my book!


  • Make it dairy-free! Violife makes some wonderful dairy-free cheese options!
  • Egg Whites: I like to lighten up frittatas by using part egg whites, but you can also use all whole eggs.
  • Switch it up! Onions or scallions can be used in place of shallots. Swap the cheese for whatever you like or have on hand.
