6 lg. eggs
2 T. whipping cream
1/2 t. salt, plus a pinch
1/4 t. freshly ground black pepper
1 T. olive oil
1 T. butter
12 oz. asparagus, trimmed, cut into 1/4 to
1/2-inch pieces
1 tomato, seeded, diced
3 oz. Fontina, diced

Preheat broiler. Whisk eggs, cream, 1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper in a medium bowl to blend. Set aside. Heat oil and butter in a 9 1/2-inch-diameter nonstick ovenproof skillet over medium heat. Add asparagus and saute until crisp-tender, about 2 minutes. Raise heat to medium-high. Add tomato and pinch of salt and saute 2 minutes longer. Pour egg mixture over asparagus mixture and cook for a few minutes until eggs start to set. Sprinkle with cheese. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook until frittata is almost set but top is still runny, about 2 minutes. Place skillet under broiler. Broil until top is set and golden brown on top, about 5 minutes. Let frittata stand 2 minutes. Using a rubber spatula, loosen frittata from skillet and slide frittata onto a plate.
