10 minutes prep + 25 minutes cook
4 servings
Easy and delicious breakfast frittata with prosciutto, tomatoes, asparagus and cheese!


  • 1/4 cup sliced red onion, or 1 shallot
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup cherry tomaotes
  • 6 to 8 stems asparagus
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 5 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/3 cup goat cheese, cheddar cheese, or your favorite
  • 4 slices prosciutto, or ham
  • 1 avocado, for serving


  • Preheat the oven broiler. Prepare all vegetables; slice them thinly so they cook quickly. Remove the hard ends of the asparagus and discard.
  • Preheat an egg/omelette pan or frying pan over medium heat. Add a splash of olive oil or butter, then add the onion, red bell peppers, cherry tomatoes and asparagus. Add the smoked paprika and dried basil and a pinch of salt. Toss everything together and cook for about 5 minutes until vegetables are tender. Remove the asparagus and set aside.
  • Meanwhile, prepare the eggs. Whisk the eggs, milk, salt and freshly ground black pepper until smooth. Pour the eggs over the prepared vegetables. Top with asparagus and choice of cheese. Turn heat down to low and allow the eggs to cook for about 4 minutes, until the edges are done.
  • Transfer the frittata into the oven under the broiler set to ‘low’. Cook the frittata until the eggs are set on top, about 2 minutes. Remove and serve immediately with prosciutto, avocado and toasted baguette.
