A frittata is a crustless egg bake that combines eggs with vegetables, meat, and/or cheese. Frittatas are more similar to a savory breakfast casserole than a quiche and can be served at any meal. Try serving a wedge of frittata with fruit and whole grain toast for breakfast or pair it with a green salad for lunch or dinner.
This baked frittata recipe is made with a few warm weather produce-stand favorites: asparagus, cherry tomatoes, green onions, chives, and parsley. If you’d like to increase the protein content and get your daily dose of glutamine, we’ve also included the option to add a few scoops of Glut Immune to the beaten eggs. Be sure to whisk the eggs well to incorporate the glutamine powder for best results.
Unlike eggs cooked on the stovetop, baked egg recipes make excellent leftovers. Simply store any remaining slices of frittata in an airtight container in the refrigerator and reheat in the microwave. File this recipe for baked eggs with asparagus and fresh herbs away for an easy, protein-packed meal that can be enjoyed any time of day.
