Asparagus and Goat Cheese Frittata Tips

  • DISH: This recipe is best baked in a 9-inch oven safe dish. Sometimes I will also use an 8 × 8 glass baking dish. If I’m doubling the recipe I use a 9 × 13 lasagna pan.
  • ASPARAGUS: Use fresh asparagus. Wash, dry and trim off the woody ends. I like to use full asparagus stems because they look so nice and are still easy to cut once they soften during baking. If you would prefer smaller pieces, feel free to add chopped asparagus instead.
  • GOAT CHEESE: Use 1/2 cup soft goat cheese.
  • RICOTTA CHEESE: Ricotta adds a beautiful creamy texture to this frittata.
  • MILK: You can use 1%, 2%, whole milk, cream, or heavy cream.
  • LEFTOVERS: Store any leftovers in an airtight container (or cover tightly with a layer of plastic wrap) in the refrigerator. After the frittata has been in the fridge you may notice a little bit of excess moisture, just drain it off.
  • FREEZING: You can freeze leftovers. Place individual pieces on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Then put the baking sheet into the freezer and freeze overnight. Once the slices have frozen, transfer them to a ziplock bag and freeze. Reheat in the microwave.
  • MAKE AHEAD? I do not recommend making this dish ahead of time. It’s best served immediately.
