Creamy Prosciutto and Asparagus Frittata – always a great addition to any brunch menu! (Whole30/Paleo)
If you are still looking for a delicious Mother’s Day Brunch menu item – this is it!
I am a major frittata lover, you guys. When I have my act together, I make sure and I make a huge one on Sundays so that we have a quick, easy and delicious breakfasts for the week. I toss a slice into a glass container and then microwave it when I get to work. It could not be easier. And you can throw any veggie you want in there, any protein. They are so handy and a really nice way to mix up your food – hey, hard-boiled eggs can get old real-fast!
I wanted to make a little bit of a more luxurious frittata for Mother’s Day, so I used prosciutto for my protein instead of a sausage and then some bright and beautiful asparagus. I also added mushrooms, tomatoes and some green onions. Super simple.
What also makes this extra luxurious and creamy is the use of coconut milk (yum!) and I blend my eggs (which I don’t normally do), but it adds just that little bit a airiness combined with the creaminess of the coconut milk – it is SO good, you guys!
So whether you are making this for Mom or just want something new to meal-prep, I know you guys are going to LOVE this!!!
Have a good weekend, you guys!
- 10 eggs
- ½ cup full-fat coconut milk (incorporated)
- 3oz prosciutto
- 1 Tablespoon ghee
- 1 Tablespoon garlic
- ¼ cup chopped green onion
- 2 handfuls cherry tomatoes
- 1 cup sliced mushrooms (any kind)
- 12 stalks of asparagus, divided
- Preheat oven to 350.
- Add eggs and coconut milk to blender and blend for 1 minutes (or use immersion blender), set aside.
- Take half of the prosciutto and cut into small pieces.
- Add to hot cast iron skillet and let fat render, stirring fairly consistently.

- Take half to the asparagus stalks and cut into 1 inch pieces.
- Add green onions, tomatoes, mushrooms and the cut up asparagus.
- Cook for approximately 3 minutes on medium heat, adding additional ghee if the pan becomes too dry.
- Pour eggs on top.
- Place the other 6 stalks of asparagus across the top of the eggs.
- Using a stiff spatula, scrape under the eggs quickly (just one time) to help ensure they don't burn.
- Let cook on medium-low heat for approximately 5-8 minutes.
- Finish in oven for approximately 5-7 minutes.
- Check the frittata and it should look like it is just barely cooked all the way, if it is still runny in the middle, put it back in at 2-3 minute increments.
