SCD Recipe: Asparagus Frittata

Eggs are a go-to meal for me. I probably eat them more often for dinner than I do for breakfast! Typically I’ll make a scramble using veggies I have in the refrigerator along with some bacon and cheese. I had some asparagus to use up so I decided to get a little fancier and make a frittata. I baked it in my cast iron. If you are using a cast iron pan make sure it is well seasoned. Eggs have a tendancy to stick, but I don’t usually have a problem when my pan is seasoned.

You can use whatever SCD cheese you like. I like sharp cheddar with eggs, but gruyere and Colby Jack are also good.
