This mushroom asparagus frittata makes the perfect low-carb keto breakfast.
It’s packed with fiber from the veggies and protein from the eggs.
It’s comforting, delicious, and quick to make.
If you need to eat more veggies in your diet, this is the perfect breakfast to tack in plenty of veggies.
This recipe calls for asparagus, but I’d throw any low-carb veggies that go with mushrooms. My personal favorites are spinach and bell peppers.
But you can literally put anything from broccoli to kale.
While veggies are the nutritious part of this egg bake, cheese and cream bring the best part.
Cheese and heavy cream together prevent the frittata from turning dry. Not to mention the savoriness it adds to this otherwise simple dish.
It’s a pretty forgiving recipe you can easily add your own twist to it to make it your own. It’s perfect for breakfast, lunch, or even dinner.
