Mini Asparagus Frittatas

Spring is here and asparagus and eggs are on sale! This is a great time of year for frittatas. Asparagus is one of my favorite spring vegetables, bright green and full of flavor. This spring Mini asparagus frittata recipe would be wonderful for a brunch.

I call these mini frittatas because they are not my typical full sized pan frittatas, I used a Texas sized muffin tin. Two frittatas make a serving.

I first started with spraying the muffin tin with cooking spray.  Egg is great at sticking to a pan so you will want to spray it really well. Then place the asparagus tips criss crossed into the cups of the muffin tin.

Then pour over your egg mixture over the asparagus.

You can then add your chopped up ends to the  egg mixture. Then sprinkle cheese on top.

The frittatas do raise so the ends will be covers up, but if you balance the tips just right you can have them peeking just out of the frittatas.
