  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 8 medium eggs
  • 3 tbsp skimmed milk
  • salt and pepper
  • 80 g brie torn into 8 pieces

Instructions

  • Bring a saucepan of salted water to the boil. Reduce to a fast simmer and immerse the asparagus tips. After 1 minute remove the asparagus from the pan and place them in a bowl of cold water to stop them over cooking and becoming mushy!

  • Heat the olive oil in a non stick frying pan (with a metal handle) and saute the onions for 6 - 8 minutes until they have softened and started to brown. 
  • Add the asparagus tips to the onions and pour on the whisked eggs. 
  • Cook on the hob over a medium heat for 5 minutes until it has started to set. Add the pieces of cheese and continue cooking for a further 3 - 4 minutes. 
  • Preheat your grill to medium / high and transfer the pan to the grill for 3 or 4 minutes until the top of the frittata sets and becomes golden. 
  • Serve warm with green salad.
