Equipment

  • 9-inch or 10-inch nonstick skillet
  • Spatula

Ingredients

  • ½ bundle asparagus ends trimmed, about 15 stalks
  • 1 Tbsp grapeseed oil or other light neutral oil
  • 6 large eggs
  • cup heavy cream or milk
  • 2 oz goat cheese about ¼ cup, plus more for serving
  • 2 Tbsp tarragon chopped
  • ¾ tsp Kosher salt
  • ¼ tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • Flaky sea salt
  • Chives finely sliced, for serving

Instructions

  • Whisk the eggs. Preheat a broiler to high. Place eggs, ⅓ cup heavy cream, 2 oz goat cheese, 2 Tbsp chopped tarragon, ¾ tsp salt, and ¼ tsp black pepper in a large bowl, then whisk well.
  • Cook the asparagus. Heat 1 Tbsp grapeseed oil over medium heat. Add asparagus, then cook until tender, but still crisp, about 2-3 minutes.
  • Broil the frittata. Reduce the temperature to medium-low, then pour the egg mixture on top of the cooked asparagus. Cook an additional 2 minutes until the bottom begins to set, then transfer the skillet to the preheated broiler. Cook for 4-5 minutes, or until the top is set and golden brown.
  • Garnish, then serve. Carefully remove the skillet from under the broiler. Sprinkle with a pinch of flaky sea salt and chopped chives, then crumble additional goat cheese on top, if using. Serve immediately or at room temperature.

Notes

  • Asparagus stalks can remain whole or cut into pieces about 1 ½ - 2" long. If stalks are thicker than ¼", allow to cook in the pan until crisp-tender, likely 3-5 minutes, before adding egg mixture.
