Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

We also attempt to estimate the cost and calculate the nutritional information for the recipes found on our site. Again, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information. Additionally, our nutrition visualizer that suggests that you limit sodium, sugar, etc., and get enough protein, vitamins, and minerals is not intended as medical advice.

The team behind spoonacular does not possess any medical qualifications and the information may be found to be incorrect or out of date based on future research.

Sparkling Wine are my top picks for Frittata. Even if you aren't making mimosas, sparkling wine is great with eggs for two reasons. One, if you're eating eggs early in the day, sparkling wine has less alcohol. Secondly, it cleanses the palate, which is important since yolk is known to coat the palate. One wine you could try is Nyetimber Classic Cuvee. It has 4.6 out of 5 stars and a bottle costs about 58 dollars.

Nyetimber Classic Cuvee

Lovely pale gold and gentle, fine bubbles. Toasty, spicy and complex aromas showing wonderful development after more than three years on lees in the cellar. The palate supports these complex aromas with honey, almond, pastry and baked apple flavors. Very fine and elegant with a great combination of intensity, delicacy and length.

Instructions

In a large bowl, combine the eggs, whipping cream, salt, pepper, and half the fresh thyme. Beat with a whisk until the eggs and cream are incorporated. In an ovenproof saut pan over medium heat, add the butter and olive oil. When the mixture is hot, add the asparagus pieces and cook for 3-4 minutes, stirring. Add the garlic and cook for about a minute. Spread the asparagus so it is evenly distributed across the bottom of the pan. Add the egg mixture to the pan and allow the eggs to cook without mixing them. Use a rubber spatula to run around the edges of the frittata as it cooks so the edges dont stick and burn. After 1-2 minutes, add the cheese evenly to the egg mixture. When the outer edges of the frittata have set but the center is still slightly runny, arrange the cherry tomatoes and asparagus spears on the top of the frittata, sprinkle the remaining thyme over the top, then remove the pan from the heat and place it in an oven set to broil. The broiler will allow the top portion of the egg mixture to set and cook thoroughly. Keep a close watch so the frittata doesnt burn. After a few minutes, when the eggs have set completely and begin to turn golden, carefully remove the pan from the oven. Use a rubber spatula to run around the edges and underside of the frittata, and slide it onto a round serving plate. Slice and serve warm or at room temperature.
