Mini Asparagus Frittata
- cooking spray
- 4 large eggs
- 2 tablespoons whole milk
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- ⅛ teaspoon ground black pepper
- 2 ounces goat cheese
- 4 asparagus stalks, cut into ½-inch slivers
- Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).
- Crack eggs into a large bowl. Whisk together with milk, salt, and pepper.
- Spray two ramekins with non-stick cooking spray. Divide the asparagus and goat cheese between two ramekins. Pour half of the egg mixture into each ramekin, then top with remaining asparagus and a sprinkle of black pepper.
- Place ramekins on a baking sheet and cook for 15 to 20 minutes or until almost cooked through but still slightly jiggly if reheating, or completely cooked if eating immediately.
- Remove from oven and allow to cool completely. Wrap in plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator.
- Reheat by microwaving for 30 to 45 seconds.
Ramekins are small dishes used for both baking and serving an individual portion of food. They're also great for creme brulee, individual apple crisps, side dishes, dips, and more. A great tool to have on hand in your kitchen!

Jenny J says:
I added ground turkey sausage and used spinach instead of asparagus. Great idea and perfect for two people. Love having this with my morning coffee.
Jeremy Hughes says:
My wife hosts a book club brunch at our house and I helped her make large batches of these frittatas for the meeting. We cut the asparagus into 1-inch pieces and discarded the woody ends. They were really good, and paired perfectly with croissants, coffee, and mimosas.
Monica Allen says:
I made a batch of mini frittatas for the week, but I think they tasted the best on day 1 and 2. Still, these are quick and convenient, and beat spending money on drive thru breakfast everyday.
Jessica Scott says:
I made a double batch of these mini frittatas for my husband so he could take them for work during the week. He's not a huge fan of asparagus, but he really likes them in this dish as long as I trim the ends. This recipe also works great with spinach, we're fans of both.
Aja A says:
Really quick and delicious! Had some leftover garlic and herb goat cheese so I had to run out and grab some asparagus to try this out. I grilled the asparagus slightly for added flavor first before mixing into the goat cheese. Never tried to freeze these or any egg muffins for that matter as a) they don't last very long and b) I've never been sure about reheating eggs after a day and how it will taste to me. Will try that out next time for a breakfast prep.
