Simple Asparagus, Hame, & Gruyère Frittata with Ultra Premium Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Simple Asparagus, Hame, & Gruyère Fritta with Ultra Premium Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 pounds organic Yukon Gold potatoes, unpeeled, washed, cut into 1" pieces
  • 2 cups fresh asparagus spears, woody parts trimmed, cut into 1" pieces (spinach works too)
  • 1 bunch green onions finely chopped - you could also opt for shallots or onion here instead
  • 1 cup Canadian bacon or smoked ham cut into 1" pieces - or go meatless with sauteed mushrooms
  • 1 cup grated Gruyère cheese or substitute for any cheese you like, or simply leave it out, it's all good
  • 8 large eggs, whisked
  • 1 teaspoon salt or to taste
  • fresh ground pepper
  • 1/4 cup UP EVOO or any infused olive oil of your choice.


Preheat the oven to 375 F.

Place the cut potatoes in a medium pot, cover with water, and bring to a boil over high heat.  Boil for 5 minutes, drain, and reserve.

In a large, heavy, oven-proof skillet (a 12" cast iron is ideal here) heat the olive oil over medium-high heat.  Add the potatoes and cook until golden brown, turning once.  Add the green onions, asparagus, and saute over medium heat for another 2 minutes.

Whisk together the eggs, salt, cheese, and pepper.  Pour over the potatoes directly into the pan, shake the pan a couple times gently to distribute the egg, and pop the pan in the oven for 20-25 minutes, until the egg is set and the top is golden brown.

Remove from the oven, and run a knife along the inside perimeter to loosen from the pan. Allow to cool in the pan for 10-15 minutes, before inverting onto a serving plate.  Cut in slices and serve with a lovely salad of baby spinach or arugula dressed with Milanese Gremolata whisked with Sicilian Lemon White Balsamic for a light, healthy meal.

Serves 6-8
