Paleo Asparagus Mushroom Frittata

JaclynPPosted by

In the Northwest, spring means mushrooms, asparagus and brunch al fresco. Although, it still is a little too cold and rainy in Washington for al fresco dining, there is an abundance of mushrooms and asparagus. Which means spring is so so close!  Perfect timing for this Paleo Asparagus Mushroom Frittata!

Similar to an omelet or quiche, frittatas are much more paleo-friendly because they don’t require milk, cheese or a crust! I like to use thinly sliced potatoes to add more substance and ham or bacon when I’m eating it for dinner. Frittatas are so easy and fun you can use whatever veggies are in season and make it your own!

This is one of my favorite brunch dishes because it is light, easy and goes perfectly with a mimosa! Although, I’ve been really diggin’ pink champagne lately! FYI, this recipe serves 4 and it doesn’t double well. So, if you are cooking for a larger crowd, use a bigger skillet (16″+) and add 2 extra eggs.  Or, do as I do and make multiple batches. The good news is, it reheat nicely! So any leftovers usually end up as my breakfast on Monday! Yum!
