Frittatas Using Fresh, Organic Produce

While not a vegetable in my CSA this week,  I did snag a bunch of fresh, local, organic asparagus, so I’m also looking for new ways to cook asparagus. I decided to try my hand at coming up with a workable recipe that would use some of the asparagus, so I made frittatas.

The ingredients used are listed below. As always, I encourage you to use local, organic products when possible.

  • 4 eggs
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 3 slices of turkey bacon, cooked, divided in half, and each half cut into bite-size pieces
  • 1/4 – 1/2 cup shredded cheese (your choice; I used a Mexican mix because it was open)
  • 3 asparagus, rinsed and cut into bite-size pieces
  • 1/8 green bell pepper, rinsed and cut into bite-size pieces
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • a dash of Italian seasoning

Instructions:

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Grease or line six muffin tins according to your preference; I used Pam.
  3. Cook bacon. Drain on paper towel while cooling. Cut into bite size pieces as noted above.
  4. Beat eggs with milk, adding seasonings as desired.
  5. Divide evenly into greased/lined muffin tins in the order listed bacon, bell pepper, asparagus, and cheese.
  6. Pour egg mixture into each muffin tin evenly over other items.
  7. Bake for about 20 minutes, checking often as ovens cook differently.

Makes 6 frittatas. Below are the pictures of mine before and after cooking.
