MARY’S MAGIC ASPARAGUS CHEDDAR FRITATTA
I keep getting asked, not only how I can be so attractive in the morning, but also for my recipes. Well, I've had to give Mary a little credit lately, so we'll say this unbelieveably creamy, melt-in-your -mouth savory dish was hers...... You'll remember it if you've eaten it!!
6 tablespoons of unsalted butter, divided
1 cup of chopped fresh asparagus, chopped into ½” pieces
2 shallots, chopped
8 extra large eggs, or 10 large eggs
1.5 cups of cottage cheese
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese, freshly grated
½ cup jarlsberg cheese, fresh grated
½ tsp kosher salt
½ tsp black pepper
1 tbsp fresh thyme
1/3 cup flour
¾ tsp baking powder
Preheat oven to 350
Melt 2 tablespoons of butter in 10” oven proof skillet
Melt the remaining 4 tablespoons of butter in a dish in the microwave
In the skillet, sauté the chopped asparagus & shallots until tender, turn off heat
Meanwhile, whisk eggs, 4 tablespoons of melted butter, salt, pepper & thyme
Stir in cheeses
Sprinkle in flour and baking powder, fold into egg mixture
Pour egg mixture into skillet. Bake frittata until it is browned & puffed up…
About 45 – 50 minutes.
Insert knife into center, should come out clean when dish is ready!
SERVES 8!! Bon appetite!!
