Ham, Mushroom & Asparagus Frittata

Whether I like it or not the holiday season is full steam ahead. Next week is Thanksgiving. THANKSGIVING (is anyone else in denial about this?). The day after Thanksgiving marks the beginning of hustle and bustle for us. We like to host dinner parties and already have a few others on our schedule during the month of December. I’m trying really hard not to jump to Christmas but that’s easier said than done. I’d like to enjoy Thanksgiving first. We do have so much to be thankful for after all.

For Thanksgiving our oven (and I’m sure a lot of yours) will be getting a workout. Don’t worry she’s up for the challenge, it’s more myself and cleaning all those pots that I’m worried about. The last thing I want to do the day after Thanksgiving is to mess up the kitchen again. Anyone else raising their hand? This ham, mushroom and asparagus frittata is perfect for day after Thanksgiving breakfast, brunch or dinner (yes you’ve heard of brinner haven’t you?). You can make this frittata with your leftover Thanksgiving Smithfield ham. The turkey doesn’t get to have all the fun.
