Prepared in 15 minutes or less.
12 eggs, room temperature
6 Tbs sour cream or creme fraiche
2 tsp lemon zest
2 Tbs fresh chives, chopped
1 Tbs fresh flat-leaf parsley, chopped
2 Tbs unsalted butter
2 Tbs extra-virgin olive oil
2 spring onions, thinly sliced
16 fresh mushrooms, rinsed, drained and thinly sliced
24 asparagus spears, cut into 2-inch pieces
Salt and fresh pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 450°F.
In a medium bowl, whisk eggs, sour cream, lemon zest, salt and pepper to taste until well combined. Set aside.
Heat butter and oil in a 9-inch oven-proof pan over medium high heat until butter begins to bubble.
Add onions and mushrooms and season with salt and pepper to taste. Cook for 3 minutes. Add the asparagus and season with more pepper. Cook until the onions are translucent and asparagus are cooked through yet crisp, approximately 3 minutes.
Add the egg mixture to the hot pan and move the pan to the oven. Bake frittata for 5 – 7 minutes or until all of the egg has set.
Remove from oven and sprinkle with chopped chives and parsley. Allow to rest for 5 minutes until the egg has completely firmed up before serving. Serves 4.
