Not only is this super quick and easy to make, but it's low carb AND gluten-free. In each bite, you get a crunch of crispy asparagus and a taste of the soft, melted feta cheese. The eggs simply bind the whole thing together, so even if you're not a huge egg fan, don't fret. They don't stand out much. This is a great dish for brunch, breakfast or even a quick snack. Enjoy!
- 1/2 tbsp. olive oil
- 12 fresh asparagus spears, ends removed and cut into 1-inch pieces
- 1/3 cup shallots, chopped
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 8 large eggs
- 1/3 cup reduced-fat milk
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 1/4 tsp. pepper
- 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
In a 10-inch cast iron skillet, add oil. Add asparagus, shallots and garlic and cook for 3-5 minutes until asparagus starts to become tender.
Meanwhile, whisk the eggs, milk, salt and pepper together in a medium bowl. Set aside.
Once asparagus is tender, sprinkle feta over top. Pour egg mixture over top. Cover and cook over medium heat for 3-5 minutes or until eggs are nearly set.
Put under broiler for 3-5 additional minutes or until eggs are completely set.
