With the warmer weather and Mother’s Day coming up, it is the perfect time to Spring Into Flavor and invite people over for brunch out on the deck. I love when we finally get to use our deck and enjoy the outdoors while we eat! What I don’t love is having people over and spending all of my time in the kitchen preparing the food. Instead, I prefer to make dishes that can be prepped ahead and finished when my guests arrive.
Recently I came across these new fries from Alexia at Walmart—Rosemary and Sea Salt Fries—and thought the combination sounded so good. I decided to add them to a frittata for brunch and include asparagus for a springtime flavor. Fries in a frittata? Yep, with the high quality, all natural ingredients in the Alexia fries, they can be added to many different dishes! The rosemary fries and prosciutto gave the frittata a heartiness that even satisfied my husband’s appetite, and the asparagus added a pop of color.
When I got up in the morning, I cut the asparagus, prosciutto and fries and stored them in the refrigerator for later. Once my guests arrived, I added the prosciutto and fries to some extra virgin olive oil in a cast-iron skillet. While they cooked I combined the eggs, milk and pepper and then added the asparagus to the skillet. I added the egg mixture and let that get almost set. Then I topped it off with cheese and put it in the oven. I only spent about 15 minutes away from my guests! This is a perfect brunch recipe for when you have guests.

Alexia Fries & Onion Rings
When I was in the frozen food aisle at Walmart, I also found the Alexia onion rings and sweet potato fries. I can’t wait to try them in a recipe soon. My friend Andrew over at Scrappy Geek has an awesome recipe for BBQ Bacon Wrapped Chocolate Dipped Onion Rings that looks so good, you should check it out!
