I thought I’d dedicate this week’s posts to all things Easter and Easter brunch. It’s been a while since I had a themed week. As many of you are already aware, I’m basically obsessed with breakfast and breakfast foods. Any chance I get to dedicate a week to it, get’s me insanely excited. So, yippee! I’ve been going kind of crazy this past week and weekend preparing frittatas, glazed ham, strawberry beermosas, white chocolate raspberry pots de creme, and savory crepes with the easiest cheesy hollandaise ever. Oh, and did I mention ham and brie turnovers?! I’m salivating just thinking about it. First on the list: this spring asparagus and mushroom frittata.
The thing I love most about Easter brunch is how it combines recipes from winter and spring AND breakfast and lunch/dinner. I mean you can literally serve anything at an Easter brunch and your guests are going to love it. It’s also a great way to throw together a bunch of recipes that normally you wouldn’t pair together. I love that you can be so creative without it being difficult or time consuming (like Thanksgiving tends to be).
I love making frittatas. Zach and I can usually polish one off easily by ourselves. It’s a blank canvas to create the perfect breakfast or brinner recipe. I think this can be said for really any type of eggs. I love coming up with new and improved ways to liven them up.
This spring asparagus and mushroom frittata in particular is one of my favorites and contains some of my favorite ingredients. The baby asparagus was looking especially adorable at the grocery store, so I knew I had to throw it into the mix. Add mushrooms and shallot and a ton of herbs, and I swear this frittata tastes like spring!
Don’t be afraid. Pair this asparagus and mushroom frittata right alongside your brown sugar glazed ham and a basket of rolls. It’s absolutely the perfect side dish! As far as beer pairings are concerned, pair this frittata with a brown ale. It will really bring out the flavor of the mushrooms, and have a happy Sunday friends! See ya tomorrow! xo
