Before you start set your broiler to high heat. You will need for about 3 min to cook the top of the frittata directly from your saute pan.
Basically you can make a frittata with any kind of ingredients you like! The only ingredients that stay consistent in a frittata are eggs, salt and pepper! For this recipe I added Asparagus, turkey and parmesan for my veggies, meat and cheese combo! Many people use cheddar cheese with a mixture of ham and bell peppers. I can't wait to hear what you guys use!
In a medium sized bowl whisk your 6 eggs then add in your 1oz of grated or shredded parmesan cheese, pinch of salt and a pinch of pepper.
Chop up your asparagus and turkey. I cut my asparagus about 1/2 inch in length. I also lightly seasoned the asparagus and turkey with garlic salt.
After you have heated a 12-inch non-stick, oven safe saute pan over medium high heat. Add butter to pan and melt. Add asparagus and turkey to pan and saute for 2 to 3 minutes. Or until your asparagus is almost cooked thru. Remember you are sticking this in the broiler for 3 min after so your asparagus will continue to cook in the broiler. Also note that it's best to buy or pre cook your meat before hand, so you can saute your veggies and meat at the same time.
Pour your egg mixture into the cooked asparagus and turkey.
Using a spatula make sure the egg mixture fully covers your asparagus and turkey.
Cook for 4 to 5 minutes or until the egg mixture has set on the bottom and begins to set up on top. I know when it's ready to put in the broiler when the bottom is beginning to brown. The technique I use for this frittata is to flip it over once it has been in the broiler so the bottom you see above will end up being the top of your frittata. The presentation is much more beautiful and appetizing this way.
Sorry I didn't include a photo of putting the frittata into the broiler :( It's a quick step and I was taking my own photos, hehee :) But once you do this you will see the frittata rise and the egg mixture cook on top. Since the broiler is very hot and cooks fast I would check your frittata after 2 min. That may be all the time you need to broil this delicious and quick brunch dish!
Once your frittata is done in the broiler USE OVEN MITS and flip your frittata over onto a plate. This takes some skill so be VERY CAREFUL!
