Grand Traverse Morel and Asparagus Frittata


Grand Traverse Morel and Asparagus Frittata

What a lovely way to feature some of our favorite foods! Asparagus is such a natural for a frittata, and the addition of the morel mushrooms makes this recipe perfect for lunch, brunch, or dinner - any time you want a hearty, tasty dish. Have a nice glass of Black Star Farms 2007 Arcturos Barrel-Aged Chardonnay with it and you'll be all set.
