Ham & Asparagus Frittata
4 large eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 pound asparagus, tough ends snapped off, spears cut diagonally into 1-inch lengths
1/4 cup cubed ham
1 cup shredded Gruyere or Parmesan cheese
Preheat oven (broiler).
In a medium size bowl mix together eggs, cheese, salt and black pepper.
Spray with oil a 10-inch oven-proof frying pan. Add ham and cook over medium high heat for about 2 minutes. Add asparagus, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook, covered, until the asparagus are barely tender. Pour in egg mixture and cook until almost set, but still runny on top, about 2 minutes.
Broil until cheese is melted and browned, about 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from oven with oven mitts and slide frittata onto a serving plate. Cut into wedges.
