Feta and asparagus frittata

It’s late spring and Jersey Royals and asparagus are in full season, plus my hens are laying like billio. There was no alternative but to invent this very seasonal and beautiful frittata, perfect for a lazy spring evening.

Thank you to my friend and incredible cook, Isabella, for taking time out of her holiday to help me choose between the 924 photos I took of this.

  • 200g feta broken into rough chunks
  • 8-10 spears of asparagus, woody ends lopped

  • chopped fresh parsley to serve

Instructions

Heat the oven to 200 degrees and lightly oil a flan dish.

Lay the cooked potato slices over the bottom of the dish and then add the sliced onion.

With a fork whisk the creme fraiche and eggs together, adding a large pinch of sea salt.

Scatter the feta over the onion and potato then pour over the egg mix to cover everything.
