Asparagus, Goats Cheese & Bacon Frittata

So tonight's meal was supposed to be goats cheese and asparagus frittata, but we had a few leftovers in the fridge so decided to use these up as well. That's the great thing about frittata, you can pretty much use up everything you have left and it will taste good.

To say this meal was pretty inexpensive and used up some of the leftovers in the fridge, it was really tasty. It had a great flavour to it and I enjoyed the vegetables. Any excuse to have asparagus ;-) .

Now cheese is something I really love, particularly the soft type like Brie. I could literally eat this all day, which is why I don't tend to eat it often so I don't get carried away. 

Serves 3 - 4

  • 6 Eggs, beaten
  • Small amount of milk
  • 1 small bunch of asparagus, blanched
  • 1 pack of tenderstem broccoli, boiled and cooked through
  • 100 g french goats cheese, chopped into cubes
  • 100 g mature cheddar cheese, chopped into cubes
  • 100 g bacon
  • Salt and Pepper
  • 100 g mushrooms, sliced
  • Knob of butter
  1. Melt the butter in a medium frying pan
  2. Fry the mushrooms and bacon in the pan, until the bacon starts to cook through and any of the water from the bacon has started to evaporate.
  3. Add the asparagus and broccoli to the pan.
  4. Pour the egg and milk mixture over the vegetables, season and cook a little.
  5. Add the cubes of cheese on top of the eggs.
  6. Heat the grill up to a medium - high heat, put the pan under and cook for about 5 minutes until its cooked through and starting to brown.
