Servings: 6

INGREDIENTS:
6 large Eggs
2 tablespoons Heavy Whipping Cream
1/2 teaspoon Kosher Salt
1/4 teaspoon Black Pepper, freshly ground
1 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 tablespoon Butter, unsalted
12 ounces Asparagus, trimmed
2 each Roma Tomatoes, seeded, diced
3 ounces Fontina Cheese, shredded

DIRECTIONS:
Preheat the broiler. Whisk the eggs, cream, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and pepper in a medium bowl to blend. Set this aside. Heat the oil and butter in a 9 1/2-inch-diameter nonstick ovenproof skillet over medium heat. Cut the Asparagus into 1/4 to 1/2-inch pieces. Add the asparagus and sauté until they’re crisp and tender, this will take about 2 minutes. Raise the heat to medium-high. Add the tomato and a pinch of salt and sauté for 2 minutes longer. Pour the egg mixture over the asparagus mixture and cook for a few minutes until the eggs start to set. Sprinkle with cheese. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook until the frittata is almost set but the top is still runny, about 2 minutes. Place the skillet under the broiler. Broil until the top is set and golden brown on top, about 5 minutes. Let the frittata stand 2 minutes. Using a rubber spatula, loosen the frittata from skillet and slide the frittata onto a plate.
