Asparagus season is just around the corner. Here’s a brunch classic recipe with some fresh vegetable flair.

Recipe Ingredients

4 large eggs
4 large egg whites
1/2 tsp salt, plus a pinch
1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
2 tbsp Smart Balance® Blended Butter Sticks
12 oz asparagus, trimmed, cut into 1/4 to 1/2-inch pieces
1 medium tomato, sliced
salt to taste
2 oz reduced fat Swiss, shredded or diced

Recipe Steps

Preheat the broiler. Whisk the eggs, ½ teaspoon salt, and pepper in a medium bowl to blend. Set aside.

Heat the Smart Balance® Blended Butter Sticks in a 10-inch-diameter nonstick ovenproof skillet over medium heat. Add the asparagus and sauté until crisp-tender, about 2 minutes.

Raise the heat to medium-high. Add the tomato and a pinch of salt and sauté 2 minutes longer.

Pour the egg mixture over the asparagus mixture and cook 4-5 minutes until the eggs start to set.

Sprinkle with cheese. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook until the frittata is almost set but the top is still runny, about 2 minutes.

Place the skillet under the broiler. Broil until the top is set and golden brown, about 5 minutes.

Let the frittata stand 2 minutes.

Using a rubber spatula, loosen the frittata from skillet and slide the frittata onto a plate.
