I think I’ve mentioned once or twice that breakfast is my favorite meal of the day, especially when it comes to going out to a restaurant.
But during the week, I usually struggle with eating a proper meal. I’ve been trying to make more of an effort to eat better breakfasts in the mornings, instead of my usual granola bar or yogurt. I’ve stayed on track for the most part, thanks to this baked oatmeal and these French toast cups.

Gayle – My favorite meal of the day is also breakfast. There are so many delicious flavors and options. I know this is crazy, but I’ve never had asparagus in my eggs. I don’t know why I haven’t, but I need to change that! This looks like a great brunch meal or breakfast for the week.
I don’t make eggs with asparagus too often, but it’s so delicious! I think you would love it, Erin. Thanks for the kind words!
You crave eggs. I crave chocolate. We’re all different! 🙂
This frittata does look pretty cravable (not a word, I know), though. It’s a great breakfast!
Thanks, Mir! This definitely hit the spot for breakfast!
I eat eggs every morning for breakfast, so it’s nice to have some new ways to prepare them! I love how versatile this frittata is. It works for any meal of the day! For lunch I love it with a side of mixed greens. This recipe will be great for my leftover asparagus ☺️
That such a great idea to have eggs for lunch with a salad, Alison! And thanks for the kind words!
Breakfast is my favorite and I would love to start my morning with this frittata! It looks so delicious and the asparagus and bacon sound amazing! You can’t beat how easy it is to whip up too and would make an awesome weeknight dinner! 🙂
Thanks, Kelly! I love how easy frittatas are to whip up, too. It makes the perfect meal!
Oh I really need to be better about eating breakfast. Usually I just eat nothing until like 10:30 when I realized I’m starving and then I just eat weird things because it’s not really breakfast anymore and it’s not lunch yet, either. These are the problems of working form home. Ha! :-). Your frittata is gorgeous. And bacon – I mean, yes please!
Haha I do the same thing, too Liz! I’m trying to be better about eating breakfast now…it’s a slow process! 🙂 Thanks for the frittata love!
Gayle, I know what you mean about craving eggs . . that’s what’s getting me through this month!!! 🙂 love this frittata!!! can’t go wrong with a frittata!! love that you can throw all sorts of deliciousness into them!!!!
Yes! Eggs are definitely delicious and healthier, too! Thanks for the kind words, Alice!
I love frittatas! It’s such a good idea to make one of these on a Sunday and bring it into work for breakfast throughout the week 🙂
Definitely, Sues! It makes the perfect leftover meals!
I’m like you –love breakfast, so long as it’s easy and make-ahead!! Frittatas are the best, and this version looks so delicious! Pinned!
Thanks for the kind words and pin, Blair!
Frittatas are totally my go-to choice of breakfast! Especially ones loaded with lots of green and bacon! This seriously looks like the PERFECT way to kick-start the day, Gayle!
I love frittatas! Such a quick and easy meal to put together.
Me too, Kelly! Thanks!
I tried for weeks to break my habit of sugarized cereals and granolas and get on the egg and turkey/ham sandwiches for breakfast train. It worked but I learned how to listen to body a little better and sometimes, it’s savory and sometimes it’s sweet and sometimes, its ok. 🙂 I so admire your balance with breakfast Gayle! It can be my most challenging meal of the day and I LOVE this bacon and asparagus frittata. Asparagus and bacon, for reals, the best things eva. Pinning this!
Balance can be hard but is definitely good when you get the hang of it! 🙂 Thanks for the kind words and pin, friend!
This would be a perfect way to start my day! I actually stocked on the ingredients this weekend to make a frittata, but so far I did’ get a chance, this recipe is a nice reminder!
Sounds like you would love this frittata, Katalina! It’s so easy to make and so versatile depending on your tastes!
That’s exactly hat I like about it, as long s you have some eggs in the fridge the possibilities are endless. This is the type of recipe that you don’t really buy special ingredients for, unless you want a specific flavor, but usually while cleaning the fridge you get all you need.
I love your thinking, Katalina! This dish is definitely great for cleaning out the fridge!
I’m not a huge breakfast person but I will never turn down a quiche or frittata. I’m loving this frittata, Gayle! Especially the asparagus and bacon, so scrumptious!
Thanks, Jen! The asparagus and bacon make the perfect combo!
I’m so terrible about eating breakfast, which is usually why I end up trying to eat lunch at 10:00 am. This frittata is a perfect solution for a grab and go breakfast! Bacon makes everything better, right?
Thanks, Rachelle! And yes, everything is better with bacon!
This frittata looks so good and it would the perfect breakfast for me to make the night before. I love eggs for breakfast but sometimes I don’t like the smell of eggs cooking first thing in the morning.
This would definitely be perfect for you, Christin! Thanks!
How have I never made a frittata before!? I have SO many eggs in my house (my parents have chickens so the supply is basically endless). I will definitely be trying this out, and I love the idea of asparagus and bacon together!
Oh nice! Sounds like you have an endless supply of fresh eggs, Sam! I hope you love this frittata if you try it!
I’m with you — I LOVE my eggs! And I love how well they reheat the rest of the week! Pinning this for sure!
Ahh! I love a good frittata! I’m totally obsessed with eggs too. I go through so many per week! Looks amazing, Gayle! Pinned!
Thanks for the frittata love and pin, Justine!
I could eat eggs every day too, but then all the boys in my house would be lined up for them too, so I don’t! Haha. This is the perfect way to make them — it’s so easy and there’s leftovers! Love the asparagus-bacon combo!
Haha that definitely makes sense on why you don’t eat eggs every day! 🙂 Thanks for the kind words, Marcie!
Love eggs and this frittata looks awesome! Great idea to add asparagus, perfect for spring and summer!
Thanks, Mira! I love adding asparagus to most anything!

Good choice having the asparagus, only for a few weeks before they start getting out of season. 🙂
Thanks for sharing

We do eat scrambled eggs pretty much every day in my house! I just love them. I’m also a huge frittata fan, so whenever we get sick of scrambled I just whip up a frittata for a little change haha. This combo looks great – can’t wait to try it!
Thanks, Keri! I love how versatile frittatas are…and they’re fun to make, too! 🙂
One meal I never miss is breakfast.. I simply love it way too much to skip it. My hubs on the other hand.. different story. However, he (and i) LOVE bacon and asparagus (what’s not to love???) I bet if I had this Frittata already prepared for him to grab and go, I could get him to actually eat the most important meal of the day! Thanks for the great idea and recipe! Frittatas are delish and yours is no exception! ♡ p.s. Brinners rock the house 😉
Thanks so much for the frittata love, Cheyanne! My husband loved this dish! Like you said, what’s not to like about bacon? 🙂
Love asparagus, LOVE bacon – This fritatta sounds amazing!
Oh my – I am loving this recipe Gayle, I can’t get enough of asparagus at the moment! It’s the perfect addition for frittata, yum!!
Thanks, Harriet Emily! I agree, asparagus is the best during the summer!
Gayle I am not in the cooking mode today at all but I can totally go for this delicious frittata!! Looks so good!
Thanks, Ami! It’s so easy to throw together!
I once tried to make a frittata and it failed..so miserably. This looks amazing, I think I might give frittatas another chance!
Thanks, Cathleen! This is so easy, I think you would love it!
FYI: Made this and got all the way to the end and thought, “oh no, where does the milk go?!” The recipe calls for it but your directions do not.
You are so right, Sara! Thank you so much for pointing that out. I went ahead and updated the recipe directions.
Hi. I do not have a cast iron skillet, could I still do this? Also, are there any suggestions on replacements for the asparagus? Not sure my little ones would eat it. Thank you!
Hi Adeline! A regular, oven proof skillet would work just as well. You could replace the asparagus with broccoli, cauliflower, or really any other veggie. Thanks for stopping by and hope you enjoy!
