Bacon and Asparagus Frittata Recipe

Especially during the summertime, this makes a nice light meal. When I prepare this frittata for guests, I’ll also serve rice and bread to make a hearty meal—quick and easy, but it always wins me many compliments! I'm a homemaker with two small children, and cooking's one of my favorite hobbies.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. Cook:25 min. YIELD:6 servings


  • 12 ounces bacon
  • 2 cups sliced fresh asparagus (cut in 1/2-inch pieces)
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 10 large eggs, beaten
  • 1/4 cup minced parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 large tomato, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese


  • 1. Cook bacon until crisp. Drain, reserving 1 tablespoon drippings. In a 9- or 10-in. ovenproof skillet, heat reserved drippings on medium-high. Add asparagus, onion and garlic; saute until onion is tender. Crumble bacon and set aside about a third for the topping. In a large bowl, combine remaining bacon, eggs, parsley, salt and pepper. Pour egg mixture into skillet; stir. Top with tomato slices, cheese and remaining bacon. Cover and cook over medium-low until eggs are nearly set, for 10-15 minutes. Preheat broiler; place skillet 6 in. from heat. Broil until lightly browned, about 2 minutes. Serve immediately. Yield: 6 servings.

    "Delicious. Just what I wanted. I followed the recipe closely but added sauteed red pepper and jalepeno for a kick."
