Potato Asparagus Frittata

potato aspargus frittata, yummy egg recipes, brunch or breakfast I love breakfast foods.  When the kids were out of school on Monday, we ate breakfast food all day long.  I have made several frittatas lately and this one evolved from Ina Garten’s Potato Basil Frittata, which is an old standby of mine.

I love the potatos on the bottom, but I omitted the ricotta she uses and filled the eggs with arugula and asparagus.  I like a lot of green in my eggs, and this turned out delicious.  It came out of the oven around 3pm, and I ate it for afternoon snack, dinner and breakfast the next morning.

Ingredients:

2 tablespoons butter

2 tablespoons olive oil

4 medium potatoes, peeled and diced into half inch pieces

8 eggs
