2 – 3 cups spring veggies like asparagus, kale, cabbage, cauliflower or artichoke
1 cup parmesan cheese (optional)
Preheat broiler oven.
In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, yogurt, salt, pepper and dill. Set aside.
Heat a 10 inch cast iron or oven proof skillet and add 2 tablespoons of butter. Completely coat the bottom and sides of the skillet.
Add spring onion let soften for about 5 minutes.
Add in spring veggies and soften if desired.
Pour in the egg spreading out evenly.
Cook for about 12 – 15 minutes or until eggs are barely set and a little loose on top.
Sprinkle Parmesan cheese over the egg frittata and place under the broiler oven for 2 – 5 minutes or until lightly browned and bubbly.
