  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray 6 muffin cups with cooking spray.

  • Whisk milk, eggs, maple syrup, salt, and pepper together in a bowl.

  • Place 1 asparagus half and about 1 teaspoon onion into each of the prepared muffin cups. Pour about 1/4 cup egg mixture into each muffin cup; sprinkle each with Swiss cheese.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until frittatas are golden and puffed, about 25 minutes. Remove promptly and let cool only a few minutes, as they will deflate, like a souffle.

I'm not so crazy about the maple syrup. Overall it's good but it's missing the mark. Read More

I love this recipe! The maple syrup is what makes this frittata different, so don’t omit it. I did use crescent rolls in the bottom and sides of each muffin cup and adjusted the recipe for 8 servings. I have made these many times now. Read More
