Smoked Salmon Fritatta

Smoked Salmon Frittata

Here I am making breakfast for dinner again. There is just something so satisfyingly simple about making a frittata for dinner. It might be the one dish mealness of it all. It might be the breakfast for dinner vibe. But then again it could be all of it. This recipe for as frittata with asparagus is a winner in my house. The first time I made it, it was just for the husband and I – the kiddo was too little to enjoy something like this, I had a note to cut the recipe in half if just cooking for 2 people. However now that she is older, I make this for the three of us and it is a good size for dinner, and also gives additional for my husband to take as his lunch to work.
