Asparagus, Leek and Mushroom Frittata

Frittata

A frittata is an Italian style egg preparation that resembles a Spanish omelet. In this version, we have paired the eggs with some leeks, asparagus, and shitake mushrooms topped with a soft goat cheese that adds a delicate balance and creamy texture to the dish. We like to be careful not to overcook the eggs so we tend to take them out right at 12 minutes and sit in the pan to rest for 3-5 minutes. This approach gives you a moist egg that it is sure to hit the spot. This easy recipe only take about 30 minutes of total time and can rescue your breakfast, brunch, dinner, or late night hunger in a jiffy!
