Cheese & Asparagus Frittata

A low carb, quick, easy and delicious frittata.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Snap the tough ends off of the asparagus and diagonally cut the spears into 1" lengths. Cut the onion into thin slices.
  2. Heat olive oil in a 10" oven-proof frying pan over medium-high heat. Add onions and salt and cook, stirring occasionally, until onions are softened, about 3 minutes.
  3. Add asparagus, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook, covered, until asparagus is barely tender, 6 to 8 minutes.
  4. Lightly beat and add the eggs; cook until almost set, but still runny on top, about 2 minutes; pre-heat the broiler while the eggs cook.
  5. Sprinkle cheese over eggs and place the pan in the oven; broil until the cheese is melted and lightly browned - 3 to 4 minutes.
  6. Remove from oven and slide the frittata onto a serving plate.
  7. Cut into wedges and serve immediately.

Great Atkins Induction egg recipe

I made this for a quick dinner and it was great. I added two eggs to the recipe to match the amount of asparagus.

Atkins does not use low fat ingredients, ie low fat cheese. Any low fat product is usually higher in carbs and could trigger cravings. Any thoughts on this?

None of the recipes have how many servings the recipes makes. It just says how many calories in one serving.

Really awesome! Used Mozzarella instead of Swiss, also added an extra egg and put some extra asparagus in.
