    Spray 10-inch nonstick skillet with nonstick cooking spray. Heat over medium-high heat until hot. Add asparagus; cook and stir 2 minutes. Add potatoes; cook and stir 3 minutes.
  • 3
    Reduce heat to low. Pour egg mixture into skillet. Cover loosely; cook 15 to 20 minutes or until center is set, lifting edges occasionally to allow uncooked egg mixture to flow to bottom of skillet.

    Sprinkle with cheese. Cover; cook 1 to 2 minutes or until cheese is melted. Cut into 8 wedges.

Expert Tips

  • Reduce the fat in each serving by about 9 grams by using 1 1/2 cups of refrigerated or frozen fat-free egg product, thawed, in place of the eggs, and reduce-fat Cheddar cheese.
  • Frozen potatoes thaw quickly in the microwave: Place them in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave on MEDIUM for 3 to 4 minutes or just until thawed, turning the bowl once during cooking.
  • Garnish the frittata with slices of Italian plum tomatoes and fresh basil sprigs.
  • For an easy brunch, serve the frittata with fresh melon and muffins or flavored hearth-baked rolls, such as tomato-basil or Greek olive.
