  • 5 large eggs
  • 4 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly grated lemon zest
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 pound medium asparagus stalks (about 8), trimmed and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 4 medium slices Canadian bacon (about 2 ounces), coarsely chopped
  • Mixed herb salad, for serving
  • 1. Position an oven rack in upper shelf of oven and preheat broiler.

  • 2. Whisk eggs, 3 tablespoons of cheese, milk, lemon zest, 1 teaspoon salt, and pepper to taste together in a bowl. Set aside.

  • 3. Heat olive oil in an 8-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add asparagus and bacon and saute until asparagus is tender but still slightly crisp, about 4 minutes. Reduce heat to low, pour in egg mixture and stir gently to distribute. Cover and cook until eggs begin to set and bottom lightly browns, about 9 minutes.

  • 4. Uncover pan, sprinkle frittata with remaining tablespoon of cheese, and broil until eggs are set and lightly browned on top, about 1 minute. Remove from broiler and let sit for 5 minutes. Slip frittata out of pan onto a cutting board, slice into wedges. Serve warm or room temperature with herb salad.
