Spring Asparagus and Leek Frittata

Spring Asparagus and Leek Frittata

Yield 6 servings


  • 10 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons fresh thyme
  • 1½ teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon coarse Kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 Tablespoon ghee or melted butter
  • 8 ounces leeks, rinsed, trimmed and chopped
  • 1 pound asparagus, trimmed, cut into 2-inch pieces
  • ¼ cup cream cheese


In a large mixing bowl, whisk together eggs, thyme, mustard, salt, and pepper until well blended, set aside.

In a large oven-safe skillet, melt ghee over medium heat. Add leeks, cook 3 to 5 minutes until tender and softened. Add in asparagus and cook an additional 3 to 4 minutes, stirring frequently, until crisp-tender.

Pour egg mixture into hot skillet with the vegetables. Fold cream cheese into eggs. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook 2 to 3 minutes, scraping bottom of pan until eggs are just beginning to set.

Set oven to broil. Place frittata on a rack in the top third of the oven for about 2 minutes or until light golden brown.


When in season, swap in garlic ramps for the leeks for a fresh spring flavor!
