Mini Prosciutto and asparagus frittatas
« on: 13 January 2014, 06:01:40 PM »
Made these for lunch today.  It's a Good Food mag recipe.  Absolutely delicious and only 2g carb each:



12 slices prosciutto (I used Lidl Black forest ham which I happened to have left over from a chicken recipe)
1 tbs olive oil, plus extra for greasing
1 onion chopped
125g pack Asparagus tips
6 eggs
100ml fresh milk
50g Parmesan, finely grated

  • Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/Gas mk 4.
  • Grease a 12 hole muffin tin
  • Line each hole with a slice of ham to cover the base and sides.
  • Heat the oil in a frying pan and fry the onion till soft
  • Snap the tip ends off the Asparagus and reserve.
  • Finely slice the stalks, add to the pan and fry for 2/3 minutes then allow to cool a bit before dividing the mixture between the muffin holes.
  • Beat together the eggs, milk and 3/4 of the Parmesan, then pour equal parts into the muffin holes.
  • Top with the asparagus tips and the remaining Parmesan
  • Cook for 15 - 20 minutes until set, allow to cool a few minutes and then remove from the tin
  • Can be eaten hot or cold.
As it happens I didn't have a muffin tin, so I used ramekin dishes & made 6 from the mixture (needed 2 slices ham for each ramekin), so 4g carb each.  Very delicious and the crispy ham goes well with the texture of the eggs.  Excellent for transporting for a packed lunch  :)
