Asparagus Fritatta

This is an easy and satisfying dish for a spring brunch when asparagus is in season. Use fresh asparagus when you can.

This recipe uses Roasted Asparagus, which can be freshly-roasted and hot or it can be at room temperature when you use it.

Instructions
  1. Preheat the broiler.
  2. Butter a pie plate. If you like, coat it with savory breadcrumbs.
  3. Whip the eggs, and season with salt and pepper.
  4. Scramble 3/4 the whipped eggs in a buttered skillet, then spread the scrambled eggs in the prepared pie plate.
  5. Add the remaining whipped eggs over the scrambled eggs to give a smoother surface.
  6. Lay the Gruyere and the roasted asparagus atop the eggs.
